Thanks for the advice but im not wanting to stay in someone else´s place and do their daily jobs. I do have my own place with my chilean partner but as he is a captain for LAN, he is never home so im wanting something to keep me busy during the day that also gives me a visa. Iv been travelling back and forth to New Zealand every few months which is now becoming a hassle.

Really appreciate everyones advice :)

There were lots of summer jobs doing promotions in vacation spots but you have to be linked to an agency to do those. Go visit a modeling agency and see what they say.

I will definitely look at signing up for an agency. Never crossed my mind.

Thanks :)

Wow.... many people I know would give their right arm to be able to travel just about anywhere for next to nothing. Visiting family is that bad eh? :)

mendoza is 35 minute flight, you can do a day trip, have a steak come home, and that will be next to nothing on a z ticket :P

Looking at it on a positive way, is going to do him a hell of good.
** The gringos arriving in Chile too lazy to do their own research will stop relying on someone else to find their way around**
** The Kiwi will finally reach adulthood and his "carrete's" life will end ( at least for a while)**
** Til now he has been in a never ending picnic "viviendo la vida loca"**
** He'll be back to a more controlled enviroment**
** He'll be force to find a "real paying job" instead of replying questions in allchile.**
** He'll be working from sunrise til sunset just like a mature adult and making real money, sweating his "lomo" off and everything else just like so many of us did in our lives.**
So, it's not so bad after all. He's just going to a new transition in his life...is called......... growing up! Rejoice!

Searching on the internet for people who are willing and kind enough to send foreigners in the right direction is not exactly relying on someone else. Nothing wrong with asking for help. I assume thats what this site is for.

Indeed. Nothing wrong with asking, and the fact that certain members of Never-Never Land will growl, make useless & often rude posts telling you to run a search and otherwise make a nuisance of themselves shouldn't keep one from posting more questions. Part of research is asking questions & seeing if one can avoid re-invention of the wheel.

But then again, the adults here know this & are often willing to provide some constructive sort of answer to honest queries.
