What are the dos and don'ts of finding a job in Argentina?

Hello everyone,

Where is the best place to start when looking for a job in Argentina? Is it better to job-hunt by directly contacting the company of your interest, or should job-seekers rely on a recruitment agency, for example?

Are there any unique aspects that job-seekers should consider when preparing their CV/résumé and cover letter? Should a photo be included?

Do you have any tips on interview conduct in Argentina? Are there any particulars, such as greetings or behavioural customs?

In you opinion, is knowledge of the local language or a regional language necessary to successfully apply for a job? What level of the language should job-seekers have mastered?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


The job outlook in Argentina, at least in the province of Cordoba is pretty grim. For one thing, age and gender discrimination is legal here. Usually the age requirement never goes beyond 26, in some rare instances, 29. After that, you're S.O.L.

I've been living in Argentina for 5 years and the best I could do was freelance writing. Your best bet is to either be a doctor, a computer programmer, or an English teacher.

Job hunting is the same as it is everywhere else. Maybe more informal, more casual. If your spanish is bad and your english is good. Thats ok because ata profesional level everyone speaks English. Had an Engineer friend from Australia that got a job in one day. But if you studied outside Arg and you speak english your chances are good. You actually have an advantage over local people.
