Hello, I am an american college student of economics. I am planning on going to Argentina in June, a month and a half before my study abroad program starts. I have been looking for internships in BA for several months now without success. I have applied to abou 20 multinational and Argentine financial and industrial corporations and haven't heard anything back from most. With my legal residency permit (given to me by my study abroad company), am I not allowed to work in Argentina?? I would appreciate if someone could give me some suggestions about places that would hire me, and even restaurants/english schools that could give me a job for those few weeks. THANKS!!

Hello I am from Argentina currently living in the US for a while, and probably moving next year somewhere else. What kind of visa are you getting to go to Argentina, or just paying the reciprocity fee? I am pretty sure that if you do not have a special visa that allows you to work it will be more difficult. I suggest you to submit your resume (Curriculum Vitae) in several agencies HEre is a list http://agenciaslaborales.com.ar/listado-de-consultoras/consultoras-laborales-de-buenos-aires-capital-federal/ Submit them in Spanish that will make it easier. Looking for jobs in Argentina is totally different from other countries, I find it easier and faster than the US. I don't know how this will work for foreigners, but usually it is require an ID and also a number linked to that ID LEt me know if I can help. I've moved almost 10 years ago, but I visit my family every year

Cleo77 posted Relocating to Buenos Aires in October 2014 on the Argentina forum on April 09, 2014:
Buenos Noches, I am a 21 year old female American who has studied Spanish for six years. I am a business minded individual who has prospects of broadening my horizons, experiencing a new culture, and receiving my degree at an international university, specifically University of Buenos Aires. The highest form of education I have received in the United States is my high school diploma. I attended an American university for one year as a pre-med student, however, I decided to take a year off to travel and get a better idea of what I really want to do with my life. Also, I come from a lower class family, and I have always been very independent. With that being said, I support myself. I do not have help or much capital. I want to get my college degree, but I do not want to be tied down by the post-graduate debt that I will inquire by doing so in America. So, you could say that I am trying to beat the American system. From my research and current understanding, UBA is highly unorganized and also quite competitive. This is no problem. I am a hard working individual, and I excel in classroom/competitive environments. I am quick on my feet. However, my Spanish fluency level may be a concern. I understand the language well, and am able to write, but my speaking skills suck, to say the least. I have not yet had the opportunity to immerse myself into a Spanish speaking culture. By doing so, I am hoping to master speaking and communicating in the language within a three month time period. What I also understand is that there are not very many international students attending Buenos Aires, why is this so? I know that I will need my high school diploma for inscription, this seems to be the only form of documentation that I will need. Should I bring anything else upon arrival? Now for my budget. I will be arriving in BA with about 20,000 US dollars. I do not mind living a frugal lifestyle for the most part, I am used to doing so. I do, however, want to live in a safe part of the city, preferably Palermo, Recoleta or San Telmo. I could afford this easily off of 20,000 for awhile, but that isn't going to last me the five years that I will be living there in order to get my degree. I have bartending skills and a license, but I am aware that it is not easy to get a job there at the moment. I will also have to obtain a working visa in order to work. I WILL need a job while I am living there in order to continue supporting myself. What are your best recommendations on obtaining a job as a bartender while I am there? Preferably at a place where the wealthier people like to go (I love my tips). I also enjoy talking to/meeting new people. I have one friend who lives in Buenos Aires. He has agreed to show me around the city and help me with what he can while I am there. One person isn't a very large network, so I am looking to expend that network. This is where I am at currently and any advice would be appreciated. I have done a lot of research on this move, Argentina, and UBA so this is just a summary. I am all ears for anything anyone may have to say about this plan, and I wouldn't mind talking to anyone who is curious and may have questions. Cleo

I have two books in progress that are geared to the Argentine market. It is too costly to publish in the US and ship to Argentina. I am looking for an Argentine publisher that does on demand publishing and distribution. Any help finding one would be greatly appreciated.

Eposternak replied to the thread Arriving in Salta for exploratory visit on the Argentina forum:
donmackster initially posted:
Greetings Everyone. My name is Mack, European Canadian, and on an exploratory trip to find a new place to live. After a long period in Costa Rica, I am presently exploring parts of Chile and will travel by bus early next week to Salta, Argentina. (Expected arrival 2nd of April). I was hoping to get some feedback from expats living in Salta, or elsewhere in Argentina, to hear some of their experiences. Of course I would also like to meet people, so if there are places in Salta where expats meet I would be most interested to hear about that too. Any other feedback and comments, positive and negative, are most welcome. Thanks for your comments folks and looking forward to meeting some of you. Mack

Hi, I have been living in Argentina for just over 6 years. We live in Cordoba. I cannot give you a lot of information about the life in Salta but just general information about Argentina. I always tell people that you will either love or hate the country. It is a really bad time right now and inflation is sky high. Argentina is not the cheapest country to live in. If you manage to find something that works for you then it is great and you will be happy. If not, you will be hating every minute because things here don`t work like in other countries. Don`t bargain on "Dollar Blue" because yu will not be profiting as the regulations changed a couple of months ago and Dollars can be bought again. There is a lot of crime in bigger cities. It is not because people are hungry. It is because they can do what they want. Good luck with your move.
