adrou072 posted Professional looking for work in Santo Domingo on the Dominican Republic forum on January 17, 2015:
I am a Canadian Clinical Child Psychologist (PhD trained) with experience in general mental health, family therapy, and health/pediatric psychology. I am in the process of moving to Santo Domingo to live with my husband who is a Dominican National. I hope to work as a Child Psychologist. I am fluent in English, Spanish and French. I am wondering if anyone knows where to start my job search?

property in Dominican-RepThis is a great investment if you are interested in a vacation condo/villa as well as an income-generating property. During the down time, your island home has the potential of earning you a substantial rental income.

Hello All, we have bought a new home in Sosua and are planning our move for September 2015. Wondering if we should bring our vehicle- a 2010 Ford Escape, low mileage, or should we purchase a vehicle when we move to DR? Thanks!

Hello All, I am need to know of the referenced. I can be a real estate agent and/or work in banking there hopefully. Please give me anything you possibly know concerning costs, etc. to move to The Republic. I've already visited Punta Cana once and loved the island. How is the government and are they ok with Americans?
richardalaird replied most recently with:
Punta Cana is not a good example of life in the DR. Try Santo Domingo for a while.

Stay away from el Batey neighborhood. The hotels are full of mujeres qual quiera (ladies of the evening) and Europeans looking for happy endings. Luckily I did not have my kids with me on that trip.

Do any of you living there know what the prevailing wage is for: Domestic Help Welders Carpenters Furniture grade carpenters Electricians Plumbers Farm Laborers My thanks in advance for your input.
lasterrenashomes replied most recently with:
We're in the process of hiring a whole bunch of people right now for a new apart-hotel project, and the majority of "unskilled positions", such as maids, security, pool maintenance, gardeners, etc make between 8500-11000 pesos per month. The other ones you mentioned, carpenters, etc, a bit more, 15-20k depending on qualification. If they do smaller jobs, they normally charge more (shorter contract= higher average pay)
boater replied most recently with:
There is a lot of variability, but figure the daily wage in the DR would be lower than what the hourly wage is in the US, in some cases a lot lower.

SOV2014 initially posted:
Why are real state management fees so high in Sosua/Cbarete?
lasterrenashomes replied most recently with:
Do you mean condo fees charged by condo association for maintenance or management fees charged by real estate agent for renting it out and taking care of it? And what do you consider expensive?
