Hi my name is Denise
I am planning on moving over to tunisa,
In December or January.
My partner lives there , now iv read all the bad press , but I do not intend to marry any one over there.
I do not intend to take my hand of my purse . That is for sure I have worked to long in my life to let some man take it off me .
I would like to work over there , just untill I can see what kind of business is viable. I have owend my own pubs , ran department stores , had my own free lance training business . Lol none of that seems like it will do me much good over there . So some advise would be welcome

Denise - there is really no work here for foreigners.  We have high unemployment and any jobs are given to Tunisians over others.  Unless you can speak French/Arabic then you have little chance of working.  Perhaps you can do something on the internet??

Hi
Thank for your reply , so I need to look at the internet for work .
I don't no what I could do on the internet ?  But I will have to investigate the  opportunities  of that . Do you enjoy living over there ?

Hii
you welcome
In fact, you can invest in Tunisia in many feilds. When you come you will discover what kind of investment.
Best regards

hello everyone. I'm a newcomer. I'm from cameroon and i moved to tunisia about 2 years ago for studying. I'm living here. thank for welcoming me.

Hello!  I moved to tunisia one and  half months ago.  It's a been a good time so far.
We are an intercultural couple,  we like table games,  nature,  cycling,  having good conversations and many things.
We live in LA Marsa.

Hello , Im planning to move to Tunis with my 3 year old daughter in Octobre because my boyfriend lives in Tunis and im running from the bad weather in Switzerland.

I have been working in Swiss Banks all my life - and im experienced in other office jobs as well.

Now Im looking for a job in Tunis. I would prefer a job for 3 days per week since I have my daughter also.

If anyone knows something about a cool job - I would be very interested. I speak fluently english and german - freshing up my french as well.

Hi Stephanie
If you're qualified, I think it'll be easy for you to find a good job.
Best wishes

:D

Pls reconsider
Your thinking process is flaw
Workin 3 days/ week will generate u no more than 250-300 TND
Would that sum makes any difference in ur life.  I hope not
Stay with ur daughter and volunteer to ur liking would be much more fulfilling!!

Olivier

Hi Ozitoun!
Actually, I must differ with you on whether 300 TND/week will make much difference to one's life here. It has to be said that living costs are low and for sure, I know many people who manage on 1200 TND a month. So may I suggest that it's not such a faulty idea after all to work for three days a week? The problem is more likely to be finding such employment.

Pls reread ur statement:
3 days a week will generate NO MORE than 300/ month

But again.....

Hi Ozitoun,
Your own post didn't stipulate per 'month' so I assumed you meant per 'week'. Splitting hairs here, but all in the cause of being helpful! 300 TND per month will not make much difference, agreed, though some places it will pay a month's rent..

i dont have to pay rent there so the monthly income of 300 td would be helpful already.  thanks all for your replys

HI
I will hopefully be living over there  with my partner ,  he is Tunisian and wants me over there .
so yes we must keep in touch ,I am also looking for work teaching English as I do have my training and teaching certs .

I do hope all goes well for you, and you get what you are looking for .
Regards Denise

Really you should understand that jobs for English speakers are very scarce here!  We have very high unemployment and rightly any jobs will go to a Tunisian before a foreigner.  If you want you can become a private tutor for older students (who already have some English) to assist with the bacc and then with their c.v. for foreign companies and perhaps teach business English.  That I am afraid to say is all you can do here. 

Rarely, some of the international schools will advertise for an English teacher but they will usually specifiy 'American' or sometimes 'Native English'.  You have to pounce on these jobs as they are rarely advertised usually going to someone who knows someone.

Hello!  My name is Nicole.  I am very interested in moving to Tunisia to teach English.  However, I am a bit apprehensive since I do not know the language or the culture!  I am looking to learn about people's experiences about Tunisia... particularly in Sfax, and from Americans if there are any with this experience!
