    Buy a newspaper and go to work in a call center and make $3 per hour with escalating incentives topping out at $5 per hour.

    You should be able to rent a studio with limited furnishing and cooking for about $150 - $200 per month.

    This is a quick and easy way to Start a new Life in the Dom. Rep.

    In a couple of years the Dom may have a new name like Perignon!

    Well all of us who have done any work here are "used to" being paid more than what one makes here......

    One wonders, of course, what thoughts you had on this before you left your home country? UK?

    You are likely to just get beaten up here on the Board for ..... well.....

    did you not give this any thought of this before you got here?

    in the full year during which, of course, you were making the sound preparations needed
    reading DR1 on a daily basis
    putting your money aside
    getting a skill set ready
    making friends with us

    and all that

    certainly you are not simply a guest at an AI who has fallen in love with paradise-- because the weather has been awful recently

    and, of course. you have read the sankie 101 forum and ......

    it's a good thing that you have a return ticket, right?

    Or -- say - $200k that you can place in long term CDs so that you can live on the interest.....

    the call centers do indeed offer the best salaries here - say RD$16,000 pesos from which you can eek out a living... so that was actually sound advice.

    BTW, don't you think this sounds a little presumptuous? I would say that even to someone who speaks the language fluently - which, BTW, do you?

    Econo.pages is a call center in POP.Call them(809 970 3272) and make enquiries if they are hiring this summer.

    If you will decide to stay in Santo domingo for a while,visit Streams global services tomorrow anytime btw 9am-4pm with a copy of resume,you will be interviewed on the spot.

    Work on your spanish speaking,if you are not spanish ,it will be a bonus for ya.

    Have you ever travelled to the Dominican Republic, specifically outside of an all-inclusive resort?
