The past few days have been difficult for me because I’ve really been at a loss for exactly what to do. The process of finding a job in Madrid proved to be more difficult for me than I anticipated. There are English teaching jobs in Madrid, but I had multiple interviews cancel because I didn’t have the proper paperwork. I came to Spain knowing that I didn’t have all the documents I would need to work, but I was willing to work “under the table.” This is a fairly common practice for Americans in Spain due to the difficulty of obtaining a work visa. This may have been foolish on my part, but the process was still pretty frustrating for me.
And now, full disclosure.
