"Foreigners in Jamaica often work in a variety of sectors, ranging from hospitality and tourism to teaching and agricultural work. Professional expats can find positions in both the private and government sector, while English teachers and au pairs are also a popular job choice for those visiting the country. Additionally, foreign students and researchers often work in local universities and research institutions. Service industry jobs, such as waiting and housekeeping, are also available in Jamaica to foreigners," remarked another expat who made the move to Jamaica.
