One of the things that we have in common the editors of Viajablog and its readers is that we consider traveling to be exciting. Millennial ruins and smiles of less than a decade attract us equally, and it always seems to us that we don't have enough time to enjoy them. Wouldn't it be great if we could have months to explore a country, instead of the usual days or the most privileged weeks? One solution would be to find a job that allows us to have money for excursions and trips while leaving the door open to living in the neighborhood and getting to know people and the culture in which we want to immerse ourselves.
What is the ability that we all have equally and that can help us achieve it? Language, regardless of academic records or working life, without a doubt. In countries where Castilian is not the majority language, there is a niche market that we can take advantage of to be migrant travelers with a salary. In fact, I got my first job in Ireland with Adecco, and it was for a credit card company, checking the veracity of the data contained in the applications for it. This Spaniard called from Dublin to the entire Spanish geography to check addresses, phone numbers ... something that before I did not imagine someone would do and pay him for it.
To give an opportunity to other newcomers, or already established but who want to broaden their horizons, in a few days the "Language Recruitment Fair Dublin 2008" will be held in Dublin with the aim of bringing in contact companies that demand professionals to speak languages other than English (Accenture, IBM or Manpower, to name but a few), with workers who master the language of Cervantes, Goethe, Moliere, Pirandello or Ibsen.
Not only does it seek to cover translator positions, but also Sales, Information Technology, Marketing, Administration, Customer Service, etc. so it is a recommended event for practically everyone, regardless of their previous work experience.
Remember that the Republic of Ireland belongs to the EU, so it is not necessary to apply for a work permit (you will only need to register to be given the national equivalent of the Social Security number, the PPS called here) and that Yes, the Irish pound also gave way to the euro in 2002.
Access to the Fair is free, prior registration and application for registered entry, and will be held at the Gresham Hotel, on the well-known O'Connell Street, on April 4 and 5. If you can not go to the spring edition, there will be one, winter, on September 11 and 12, 2008.
Don't forget your resume at home!
