    Employment Opportunities

    Advertisements



    Could anyone tell me what types of employment opportunities would be available for my wife in Grenada or Dominica. Does anyone know if there are Non-govermental or International Aid organizations working in the communities in either of these locations? Do the schools have community health programs that work with the indigent populations, etc?

    Also do married couples have to live in the dorms?

    Any help would be excellent,

    Thank you

    married couples live off campus. There are not many empolyment opportunities at all for non-Grenadians. Some at campus.

    Married Life

    Actually, married couples can live on campus. There is married housing available but it is VERY expensive. I don't believe it is worth the money. All you get is a small room with a double bed and kitchen for over 5k/term (2k for term 3 which is only 6 weeks long-that's appalling). Of course, this includes utilities and cleaning service, but it is way too expensive. Also, it is a pain the --- to have to move out at the end of one term and move back in at the start of another.

    My wife and I rent a 2 bedroom apt in Grand Anse (right on the bus route) for US$600/month. No utilities are included, but we spend about 2000EC/month total (rent+utilities-this includes cable and a land phone line).

    As you can probably tell, I don't recommend living on-campus.

    This is my wife's second semester here with me. She was unable to find any work last term, but this term she is a SI (student instructor in pre-med anatomy) with DES. The pay isn't great but it should cover rent+utilities while we are here. Forget about getting a job outside of the university. It's almost impossible for any non-grenadian to be hired.

    Some students create their own businesses while down here. For example: they babysit/teach other student's kids, provide laundry service/grocery service for other students, etc. Your wife could try that route.

    hope this helps,
