Finding employment in El Salvador is difficult for both Salvadorans and extranjeros foreigners alike, although bilingual schools are constantly looking for English speakers, as well as other foreign language teachers. Bilingual schools offer competitive salaries for foreign teachers. For current vacancies see the schools websites above. Most foreigners find themselves volunteering with one of a number of local community organizations or NGOs. The Centro de Intercambio y Solidaridad (http://www.cis-elsalvador.org) is often looking to hire bi-lingual project managers and liaisons, and offers both Spanish classes and numerous volunteer and cultural opportunities.
Another organization offering volunteer work in Santa Tecla and on the Islands in the south is Travel to Teach (http://www.travel-to-teac...).
The recent incursion of the call center business has raised the bar in the need for a bi-lingual workforce.
