Hi everyone. My girlfriend and I are trying to establish ourselves in Santiago. We are both from New York, USA, and are traveling in Argentina right now. We left Chile after the protests started. We would like to make our way back to Santiago within a couple weeks to search for work and settle there. It seems like a difficult time to try to move to Chile. I am looking for your opinions regarding whether I am likely to find work.

In the USA I am a lawyer with experience in corporate and business law. My Spanish ability is conversational but not fluent. I will be on a tourist visa so I would be looking for the employer to provide a contract for a visa ‘al contrato.’

In your opinion, am I likely to find work in the legal field? Am I likely to find work in any professional field?

I really need your opinions. If there is a good chance of me finding work i will stay in Santiago and search for work. If there is little chance of finding work I would have to return to the USA. Thank you for your opinions!
DVarac, why Chile? Some of us need reminders now. My reasons, and they haven't wavered after 8 years here, are the kindness of the people and their culture that still puts family and community before money. Oh, don't let the naysayers get you down. I think when you are on your correct path in life , the universe conspires to help you.
