Looking for advice on how to find content writing or translation job.

Hi everyone,
I need some advice.i want to move to mauritius and live there.
I have a bachelors degree in chinese mandarin and am very fluent in english and hindi. Im looking for a translation job or a content writing job in mauritius. I would like some advice on where to start and any recommendations on companies or contacts you guys might know who need someone like me or can help me find a job.
Any advice is highly appreciated. Thank you! :)

Hello Sarthak,

Make sure you have a LinkedIn profile, it will surely help you in building a strong professional network.

You must have already read that for expats to live and work in Mauritius, there are a few requirements ref : Mauritius Guide . Furthermore due to the Covid 19 pandemic, foreign recruitment has been on hold and will remain so for a while.

Anyway, create your best LinkedIn profile and try to contact websun academy to enquire, they specialise in foreign languages courses (You will easily find them on google).

All the very best,
Anou

Thank you so much!
I hope i can talk to you more in private to get more information. Your reply is really helpful :)

Hi again,

1 - Are there any more companies or academies in mauritius that specialize in foreign languages?

Not that I know of. There are a couple companies but they are mostly specialised in finance/management/data management/data analyst. Here are the adverts/positions advertised for chinese language at Ecovadis : https://careers.smartrecruiters.com/ecovadis

Some other businesses in the BPO sector as well, but not in your field (translation/content writing).

2 - How hard is it for people who dont know any french?
To be honest, not very hard, english will do. You can ask your friend, the one who is studying here.

3 - What else kind Of jobs can i expect from mauritian market as a foreigner holding bachelors in mandarin and having fluent english.

I leave it to other members to guide you on this one or contact recruitment agencies.

:cheers:

Hey anou,
