Mexico City - Job Search

Networking and good credentials are always useful to finding a job in Mexico City. Being bilingual is always a big bonus, especially with a knowledge of English, while other languages may also come in very handy, considering the many, big European companies conducting business in Mexico. A good start could be to register with your respective embassy, or relevant social clubs. This will help you in the process of networking.

For executives looking to change jobs or seeking to acquire new jobs, the best option would be a headhunter. There are some excellent, international headhunting services and companies spread throughout Mexico. Most headhunting firms require a fee for their search (usually around US$1000) and they also insist on exclusivity for a certain period of time (about six months). Headhunters cater to the highest bracket of the job market, dealing mainly with executives and managerial posts, and high-end technical employment searches.

Another good place to conduct a job search is on-line, through Internet employment sites and forums where you can find information and also interact with others who may know of opportunities and also exchange advice and experience with others who have been in a similar situation as yourself. Make sure to also contact the local chambers of commerce, be they foreign or local, as they have their own employment agencies wherein you can search for vacancies and post notices. Also check out the daily classifieds in Mexico's various newspapers and their respective websites. Relocation specialists can also be helpful in terms of contacts and tips. Once you've acquired a job, and assuming you don't already have a working visa, your company should sponsor your FM3 working visa.
