What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Hamilton

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

There are alot of chefs and waitresses working out there who are mostly expats. Bermudians do not like to work unsociable hours, so do not seem th be interested in these type of jobs. There are also lots of English nanny's and hairdressers. The agencies normally find the staff which the Bermudians can not fill.

What type of work do you do and how did you find your job?

I worked as a Silver service/Bar Waitress. This was advertised in the Caterer magazine.
