I think the important thing is you have a job experience and you can definitely use that to gain access to jobs in Greece. Good luck! Reply to this

I actually used to live in France (in Grenoble; it's beautiful, visit if you have a chance!), and the fact that you speak English will definitely help you find work as a bartender if this is what you want to do. The French "red tape" however, can drive you crazy. They have more paperwork to complete to get work permits and things of this nature than the U.S. If you are a British citizen, however, there is less paperwork. Oftentimes, employers there want you to have a work permit prior to hire; they do not usually sponsor employees for permits. I actually worked while there, first as an ESL teacher, then at a chateau over the summer. If you can work with someone to teach ESL, this is actually pretty good pay considering you only are required to work like 12 hours a week. But if you want to only stay in one place for a month or so, this may not be the best option. While speaking English will help alot, the French have alot of pride in their country, which I think is great. It helps to at least know alittle French; people usually really respect that you made an effort, even if your pronunciation sucks. Feel free to email any time if you want more info on France. I also traveled all throughout Europe while I was living there, so I'll be glad to share info I have about other places if you want to know as well. See ya! Reply to this
