replied to the thread American Student Seeking Internship
on the Argentina forum on April 14, 2014:
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!!

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
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

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.
This is only half true, Argentina is 10 times worse.

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.
