Working in Argentina
Posted May 10th, 2013 - 2:05 pm by from Milano, Italy (Permalink)
Hi all, Im gonna graduate in november, and I'm considering taking a Gap year away from the whole "What-to-do-with-my-life" issue...

The idea is to travel around south america, to live a little bit!
I would probably go to a spanish school for a couple of months, just to get the language (I've done a little and im a natural. If I live a couple of months I'm sure i'll master it enough)

I'm looking for a job that can give me an accomodation, so that I can save the few money they give me, and use them to travel the next 3 months

Would you say that is possible?

I can do anything from hotels, restaurants, bars, even plantation (maybe more a brasilian thing?) or farms if necessaire (im not scared of a little hard dirty work)

What could be the average pay? Of course if I try the Hotel-tourism-restauration way is gonna be much prettier than the hard-work-farm thing but im open to any suggestion.

I guess that if they don't give a place to sleep i can always share a house with studends don't I?

just give me your thinking, whatever is it in your mind!

¿y hablas o entiendes español?

además,con visa de turista no puedes trabajar legal...

entiendo but i don't speak at all.
i want to study a little bit first and then work!
i think in a couple of month i could get at least intermediate.
Im pretty good with languages but i never actually studied.
I can watch a movie in spanish i guess, but i cant really formulate any sentence..

Te sugiero aprender el idioma, aunque sea para poder comunicarte...
algunas nociones del mismo antes de venir..
La situación del país no está muy bien,y si quieres trabajar debes estar preparado,y hablar el idioma es algo importante..

I understand that but I will study in some school first and then look for jobs.

Pascale, sería ideal que completes tu perfil, mientras más información tengas (referencias, experiencias de viajes, fotos, etc)mejor suerte tendrás en tu búsqueda de trabajo y couch.
