i have been teaching callan for 16 months and my brain is sozzled
I bet. There's call centre work, but mostly not in Warsaw. You can advertise native speaker korepetycja
(lessons to 15 - 18 year olds - often helping with homework) in the paper. A friend does fairly well from that, and a native is at an advantage. Unfortunately there isn't much - unless you speak good Polish. There's decent work in construction, but you'd need the language skills and uprawnienie
(your ticket -for plumbing, sparky, bricklaying etc) and even then there's a lot of luck involved in getting the right work. Work in Poland is often found through personal contacts, but even then, it isn't always easy.
harry and jonny what do you fellas do??????????????????
I went there as a teacher, ended up (part) owing a language school with 30 teachers (more by luck and hustling than ability), sold it to a recruitment agency (not entirely by choice) started another one as sole owner with only 4 teachers, sold that because the margins on lessons by 2009 weren't worth the effort in selling them to companies and now work elsewhere. Qatar at the moment, but sometimes on a ship, sometimes in Africa. Warsaw is still home. It can be difficult in Poland, but with teaching, if you want to enjoy it and you want to live well, you have to be constantly networking.
