How can my American husband find a good job in Brazil?

I'm Brazilian and I'm miserable living away from my family. I'm married to an American and I want to find him a good paying job in Brazil. He's a very talented graphic designer, but doesn't speak Portuguese.

Anyone here in a similar situation? I'm going crazy living here, growing very depressed (especially during winter months).

    Cristina,

    Se o seu marido é formado, isto é, se possui diploma universitário, a melhor maneira é trabalhar como designer autônomo. Embora a profissão ainda não seja regulamentada (ainda não existem leis exigindo esta ou aquela qualificação), os designers graduados costumam denuncia ao Min. do Trabalho aqueles "curiosos"que fazem "bicos" usando computador, o que acredito não ser o caso dele.

    Então ele aprende português, vocês vêm para o Brasil, e, quando tiver montado o estúdio tipo "home ofice", você põe o anúncio por ele nos jornais, na internet (Mercado Livre, por exemplo), etc.

    No início (primeiros anos) ele vai precisar bastante do seu auxílio, pois um bom designer gráfico (estou imaginando que seja designer gráfico e não, designer industrial) precisa saber como a sociedade pensa para poder comunidar suas idéias do melhor modo e assim, se destacar dos demais.

    Se vocês possuem recursos para, a melhor opção é abrir o próprio negócio como empresa doméstica ou trabalhar como autônomo.

    Eu recomendo a você o livro "VIVER DE DESIGN - Gilberto Strunck".

    http://www.submarino.com.br/produto/1/233259?franq...

    Nele, você encontra dicas de como conseguir clientes e como pagar o INSS na condição de autônomo, ou rpofissional auto-empregado.

    Beijos pra vc e boa sorte.

    PS. Why learn spanish? The guy speaks english, the girl is Brazilian and both want to live in Brazil, where people speaks portuguese. Why to learn spanish?

    The best choice is a work as self-employed designer. It's cheap and easy. He can work in his own home office.

    Good luck!

    You can teach English in almost any non english speaking country. You don't need to know Portugese (but the basics will help with your day-to-day living). It will not be a highly paying job, but enough to get by on.

    TESOL is an international company that qualifies you to teach english overseas. It teaches you how to teach. It will also help him to find a job. There are different groups, eg he could be teaching business men or students after school or just people wanting to perfect their english.

    It's the Australian/American/English person's ticket to living overseas! Good luck!

    looking for a job is tough, especially if it's a long time since you last did it! I was jobless in recent times, but I stumbled upon the website in the box below which showed me how to earn cash from my pc. Now I work when I want to - I went with SMC, a company sponsored by Tom Boswell of Happy Days (Howard Cunningham).

    My best advice would be for him to learn the Spanish language. Also some skills would not hurt. In the area he wishes to work. I understand that a letter to the embassy will also help since he will need a visa. All other matters can be answered by the State or Labor Department. I thought of the same thing myself, but the country which I wish to work is Afghanistan. I am having problems with the (visa) requirements now. Good Luck. Take Care "M" PA
