Job Market

Argentina is a country of all landscapes and seasons. Most TESOL jobs are located in the province of Buenos Aires, since forty percent of the population lives here.

Argentineans place high value in English instruction and many families send their children to after-school ESL programs, even when economic times are tough. With over 14 million people in Buenos Aires city and its suburbs, there are hundreds of ESL schools in which teachers can find jobs at any given point between February and December.

Cordoba, Rosario and Mendoza are smaller, yet significant, large cities with a standard of living similar to that of Buenos Aires. The best time to apply for a full-time job is in February, before the school year starts. It is recommended that teachers arrange their travel and work permits before applying for jobs.
