Working in Spain

You have a dream. You want to live in Spain. You ask yourself (because you're not retired yet), 'how can I make this work. I guess I'll need a job...' and thus is born your search for work in Spain.

As you may know, if you have an EU passport you're in a much better position to find work here, whether it's teaching English or IT work or bartending. If you're American, Canadian, Australian or from somewhere with a non-EU passport, you're going to find the going much tougher. There's still some hope of finding a sympathetic or sly employer who is willing to risk fines to avoid paying taxes and employing good workers. Plus there's been 2 amnesties in 5 years, so chances are good there will be another one.

In any case, read this section, working in Spain.
