The guys who want to move to Poland to be with their Polish girlfriends are particularly clueless.
That's not my opinion, and I know Poland pretty well.
As much depends on the person as the country. The kind of person who is likely to find work is just as likely to find it in Poland as elsewhere.
Now, if someone wants interesting and well paid work, they may not find it (just like everywhere else). However, there are jobs going for native speakers in call centers and language schools. Plus, anyone who really wants to can pick up private lessons.
My main problem in Poland has been how to turn down work without offending people, not how to find it. And I've had all kinds of interesting offers for work (not just teaching/call centers).
I've known literally hundreds of natives come to Szczecin. Whether they got a decent living depended on their personal qualities.
I remember some girl with an American Law Degree and a basic knowledge of Polish being informed she would never find work in Poland. What complete and utter b0ll0cks!
I completely fail to believe the only foreigners who can make it in Poland are the Polish Forum 'elite'.
I'd go so far as to claim the opposite. People with busy and productive lives do not spend each and every day hanging around forums such as these.
