My issue is that I need to find paid work in Phnom Penh

Hi guys,

I've had my heart set on moving to Phnom Penh for the past 6 years and now feel like it's finally the right time.

I first went to Cambodia as a volunteer for 6 months and I've visited the country regularly since. I feel like I know Phnom Penh well and it feels like home to me. I still work closely with the charity from the UK but I want to move closer so I can be more hands on with the development of the NGO.

My issue is that I need to find paid work in Phnom Penh and so far all jobs I have seen require a university degree - which I don't have.

I have a lot of experience working in IT but university was never something I wanted to do.

At the same time, whilst I would happily work in a bar/restaurant I don't know if this could provide me a living wage and I also wouldnt want to be taking job opportunities away from the Khmer workers.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks, Lora

Hello Lora,
I am Michael, i am originally from Montreal, Canada, ive been in Cambodia for a little over a year now. Well enough of myself, I have helped a lot of expats settle down here, or find the best plan / ways to settle down here permanently, I however do need some info, basicly your experience, resume, etc. So i can have a better insight of where to guide you and if it will be easy for you to settle down here.
Take care,
Michael
