I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management and a Bachelor's Degree in Economics (and I plan on doing an IDELT TEFL). I've been investing on my own with what I've saved over my lifetime and I've done pretty well. I'd like to eventually get involved in investment banking in Chile, and Latin America as a whole. Given my limited Spanish I wanted to immerse myself and learn the language before even attempting to look for a position within my career area (plus I've always wanted to live abroad, and I figured this is the best time to do it). It would be pretty much impossible to look for an investment banking position in Chile (or LA), even as an analyst, without pretty Advanced Spanish. I don't really learn well in a classroom setting so I figured immersion (or a combination) would be much better. I have enough savings that I don't need a huge salary just enough to cover all of the basic expenses so I don't have to drain my savings too quickly. I have enough savings to last me until February-March if it came to it, but I would really like to start working in October/November. I know the Kid's school is on break December-January, but would their be jobs available teaching adults (or anyone for that matter) around Oct-Nov? I'd rather go outside of Santiago due to the air quality, but if that was where the job was then I don't have a problem with that. I've asked this question on the ESL cafe as well, but I've gotten good answers here so I figured I'd ask here as well. I worked as a camp counselor teaching Sailing as well for 3 summers, so I do have some experience teaching kids (with some minimal classroom time to learn the more technical terms, knots, etc..)... don't know if that would even be relevant. Any insight is appreciated.
