With only general skills, you will probably not be able to find a job before you arrive on-island. Most employers will want to see you face to face before considering you for a job.

Thanks for the heads up, Im just not in the position to get out there with no sure employment, so i guess my option is to keep trying and saving money and one of these days ill have the money to get out there and then job search. Keep the advice coming its very much appreciated. I have two college degrees, am an exercise physiologist with 5 years chiropractic and physical therapy office experiance and have a degree in linework (building powerlines) so i do have those skills, but am not limiting myself to just those. Any ideas or connections id love to hear them! Thanks and take care everyone!

Ryan,

If you have the drive and determination you can find a job down here, it might not be exactly what you want but it would support you, Duffy's love shack needs bartenders, frenchtown deli has a help wanted sign, numerous charter business's are doing maintenance on their boats and need general labor, I have seen advertisements in one of our classified newspapers for general labor. Once you get here you can network and enjoy the summer and position yourself. You could find a room mate situation, use the safaris to get around until you find something solid.

You mentioned electrical. anything of that nature or refridgeration your golden. As a person with a mechanical background I needed some extra cash for a trip to Costa Rica, so I sat at Crown bay on a park bench with my tool bag and waited, along came mister boat owner and you know the rest of the story. I have been told numerous times, simply showing up for work on-time puts you ahead of most.

Good luck with your move.

Peter

Ryan,
If you are willing to give it a whirl I have a young man your same age as a tenant and he will be looking for a room mate the end of June...you could fill the bill....by the way his name is also Ryan. And the other posters as so correct...if you want it to happen and you have the drive you will have no problem finding decent work with decent wages just by showing up and time and being willing to work.
You can email me directly if you want some more information.
