Working in Ecuador
How and where do I look for a job?
Waiting for a job to come to you can be eternal, it is best to have an idea of the kinds of places that could interest you for a job and present yourself and offer your services. Always have on hand several copies of your resume so that you can leave them somewhere that you think may at sometime require your services.


The local papers always have a classified section with job announcements every day, especially on Sunday. Also you can visit cafes, restaurants, internet cafes and other such places that have foreign clientele and offer your services. In language schools, travel agencies and gyms, you can ask if there are any vacancies that need to be filled.

How to conduct a job interview?
A job interview could be the most pleasant experience or the worst experience for you, even more so if you are in a completely different country. Ecuador gives preferential and very kind treatment to tourists so you shouldn't worry.

Depending on the type of job you are looking for, it is recommended that you dress formally, in the case of guides, English teachers, or sports instructors, this may not be necessary. Find out before hand the type of job (hours, days and salary) that the company or institute is offering and maybe you could find the name of the person that will conduct the interview and find out what his personality is like and then you can give an interview to the person's liking. Be punctual or arrive at least 5 minutes before, this is a good first step to obtaining the position.

Some of the things that should never be missing from your interview:

  1. Present your updated resume (make sure it includes your language abilities, computer programs you are fluent in using and important degrees obtained that can be used here in Ecuador)
  2. Respond to the questions asked but also make sure you ask everything you want to (working hours, if there is extra pay for extra hours, work place, traveling expenses, uniform, insurance, how you will be paid (check, cash), if some type of discount will be taken out of your pay, if you need receipts, etc)
  3. Come across as being sure of yourself and confident during the entire interview.
  4. Ask Ecuadorian friends about the place where you want to work and for trustworthy references.
