on the Vietnam forum on November 23, 2014:
Hi all, I just recently moved to HCMC and I am currently working as an English teacher. I came to the conclusion that I love this country and would like to begin my career here on a previous trip to VN. I have a masters in Astrophysics with honours from England but I am finding it very difficult to find career opportunities in anything other than teaching. I enjoy teaching, but it is not the career for me. The opportunities that don't involve teaching all seem to be for Vietnamese speakers. Lots of sites talk about excellent opportunities for expat masters students in HCMC but I must be looking in the wrong places :/ I was just hoping someone here would be able to give some advice on the subject. I have tried a lot of the typical job hunt websites, sadly to no avail. Any help would be smashing, thanks ^_^
Fair enough ^_^ Singapore is something I was certainly considering. Right now I am pretty happy and I live in HCMC with friends, when they bugger off back home it will be the time to look towards there or even Japan-way. Just trying to get started as early as possible really ^_^ thanks for the suggestion dude.

Just trying to give you good advice, not dissing you. singapore is the fastest growing city in your area, not HCMC. If you don't know the languages, you are at such a disadvantage.
I just hate to see people chasing dreams they will never catch.
Hope this is good advice you can understand.

replied to the thread Relocating Vietnam
on the Vietnam forum:
I am a single male and considering relocating to Vietnam.I recently was an expat in Panama for nearly two years.To be honest i didn't actually care for it there all that much either.From what i have read and heard i suspect i would find Vietnam much more appealing (exotic) and the cost of living also a big plus.I am now back in the USA living in San Diego but originally from Boston.However,i no longer feel content in my retirement years here either.However,at present i only have my Social Security income of $1200 per month to live on due to several investments loses in the past few years.
Any advice and constructive information on the cost of living,relocation and life in general for expats in Vietnam would be greatly appreciated.I have read that Hanoi is a nice city but like being near the ocean perhaps and seems that Vietnam has many beautifully beach areas also.I am open to all suggestions and possibilities at this time.Would my SS.. income of $1200 be enough to live fairly decent or comfortable there too?

I have an English Training Center and Bilingual Kindergarten in Hanoi and I look for a English speaking language teacher. I will provide free accomodation in Hanoi. If you are interested in this, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The compensation can meet your demand of 1200$/month - net salary
I'm a local vietnamese. my family has a total of 4 people, and I'm the only one who has job. my monthly income is about $1000, and we are still doing great living in Ho Chi Minh City. So, with $1,200, you don't have to worry too much. If you need help, just let me know.
