Hey everyone

I'm trying to find work in Europe.. anywhere really but I speak french and a bit of spanish so preferably in spain or france or switzerland. I've been searching on the net for weeks but I really haven't come across anything. I play a million sports and have worked with kids forever so a dream job would be working as a bartender or a sports instructor at a resort or something but I have no idea how to find any jobs at all. How have you guys found work?? I'm supposed to be leaving for Europe in 3 months and I need to have a job set up for my visa. ahhh please help!!

finding a job as a bartender especially in the beach resorts and towns of the spanish and french seaside should be dead easy. Just showin up may be enough but try to make connections with Hotels or somethin before hand.

Or become a web designer like me - im doin work for clients all over the world now from anywhere I can plug in my PC to the Internet

Click on "links" here on TP - i found some of the sites in the work and volunteering bit really helpful - Any Work Any Where has quite a few sport instructor/bartender/resort rep kind of positions if that's what you're after.

www.gumtree.com can be good - there's an overseas work section that posts jobs in europe.

also, any family/friends/workmates/team mates who may know someone who knows anyone in europe should be harrassed for possible contacts - its worth a try.

3 months is loads of time.... don't worry

good luck
