Mexican American Thinking of moving to Guadalajara

4772 Views 18 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  FHBOY
Where to start....... well, I was born in California and lived here most of my life, but spent summers in Guadalajara (well Tlaquepaque). Currently I've grown pretty fed up with the hamster wheel I seem to be stuck in and the high cost of living of California and I am seriously considering moving to Tlaquepaque. My parents have homes where I can live free of charge and I am eligible to obtain double citizenship, I am a college grad (psychology major), and speak both English and Spanish (female 25yrs old). Realistically what kind of jobs can I obtain and how much income do I need to bring in to be able to live comfortably?

Hi. Sorry for taking so long to get back on here.. Thanks for the input. I've actually made my decision and I will be moving to Mexico at the end of august. To answer your questions regarding my education level, I actually only have a bachelors in psychology so I know starting a practice is currently not an option, at least legally. My current job title in the states is autism behavior interventionist, but after doing some reseach i really havent found many openings for similar positions in guadalajara. For now I decided to apply to language schools and in the future I hope to open either my own little language center or a "jamba juice" type of place. Wish me luck ;)
Buena suerte! You'll find a lot of stuff here on the forum about starting businesses, job opportunities etc. Use the search function.
