    Job Search in Argentina

    To be honest, getting a job in Argentina is not an easy task. There is no law prioritising locals over foreigners for jobs, but the country is still recovering from multiple economic crises, which means job opportunities for foreigners are rather sparse.

    After overcoming one of the worst economic crises ever, Argentina’s economy is on the up again. GDP growth rates have steadied creating more job opportunities for both locals and expats.

    The legal working time is eight hours per day and forty-eight hours per week. However, the regular working week does not exceed 44 hours for daily work, 42 hours for night work, and 36 hours where work is performed in hazardous or unhealthy environments.

    To get a job in Argentina, follow these steps:

    1. Get your visa

    2. Master the language

    3. Adapt your CV

    4. Write a good cover letter

    5. Use all available channels

    It might interest you to note that Argentine law prohibits workers from exceeding eight hours in a day or 48 hours in a week. An average workweek is 45 hours, including five hours on Saturday. Night work is defined as work between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., and employees working at night cannot work more than seven hours in a 24-hour period.

    An individual working in Argentina typically earns around 45,200 ARS per month. Salaries range from 11,400 ARS (lowest average) to 202,000 ARS (highest average, actual maximum salary is higher).
