When we asked people about industries and career opportunities in Dominican Rep, they reponded...

"Yes, it is possible to find a job in the Dominican Republic if you have the language skills, qualifications, and connections required to do so. There are job opportunities in fields such as tourism, business, and hospitality, as well as many professional opportunities in the country’s growing IT and finance sectors. Additionally, expats can find opportunities in the growing freelance and remote working markets. Many international companies have remote positions that are open to people in the Dominican Republic, or they can apply for jobs that are specifically tailored to the country. To get an idea of what jobs are available, job seekers can look online for job postings or connect with local employers in the country," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Dominican Rep.

"First jobs for expats here are usually in call centers if you have not transferred in with an expat company. Working in a call center will get you some experience culturally and help you find the lay of the land so to speak. I do resume reviews all the time and can give you a realistic assessment of your skills and earning potential," commented one expat who made the move to Santo Domingo, Dominican Rep.
