Hello All,

I will be moving to Spain within the next year to continue my education and since I will be a resident of Barcelona for a while (about 8 years) I need to have a job. I do understand how scarce jobs are now but I still must join the workforce if I plan on living in another country for nearly a decade. I would really appreciate any information on where to find an employer who would both hire me and help me get a work permit.

Also do you believe, in your opinion, it would be better to move to Barcelona, obtain a job first and a work permit then transfer my college credits and enroll in school or should I apply to the UB first while in the United States then move while still having obtained work prior to leaving?

Thank you so much for letting me steal a bit of your time.

Hmm, do you have any existing skills or education? What kind of jobs are you going to be looking for?

Well I’m asf ar as education I’m still in univeristy (reason for going to spain), as for a skill set I’ve worked with computers nearly all of my life (mostly virus removal and restoration, data migrations, installations and a bit more) and on the flip side hospitality such as retail, hotels, and theme parks.

Hard to say how you’d get work, but did you realize that if you come on a student visa it includes up to 20 hours per week of work (last I checked anyway)?
