I just applied for a job in Gibraltar. They need my language skillz in the gambling industry.

Of course I'm not serious about it, but come on... Gibraltar! If they advertized a bookie position in Ougadougou or Timbuktu, I would have been SO there as well.  Sure, this location is basically in Spain, but it sounds so much more exotic to say I'm thinking of relocating to Gibraltar. :p

PS: Natalia, if I had ANY sort of accounting skills and experience, I would have applied for an accounting position in Warsaw. If only I didn't hate math in school, we could have been neighbors. *g*

YES. Incentive to actually take it seriously. LOL. It's just a British rock in Spain, but doesn't it sound exotic?

Yay for moving closer!!! You could come and spend weekends on the beach on the outskirts of the Empire and we would bitch about London weather and have tea.

Plus you're ACTUALLY a subject of Her Majesty so you'd totally have street cred.

Where?? O.O Where did that come from? LOL Oh, you totally should accept, I'd come visit too. :)

Hee. *kisses your icon* I was actually researching Australia and that's how I ended up on sites for multilingual jobs. The first one that popped up for my language combination was accounting in Warsawa! No, thanks. I'm keeping my supersekkrit accounting skills for when something opens up in Wroclaw. :p

They gamble on all sorts of sports, apparently they place bets on our stupid football games in Singapore, so that's why they need the languages for customer relations. They posted the ad three weeks ago so I'm sure the position's been filled (and I'm not sure I'd relocate in *Europe* in just any conditions, I don't even know what the job is!) but I just had to apply to say I did it.

gambling & Gibraltar... I forgive you for choosing this over accounting & Warsaw ;). but it would have been amazing to have you as a neighbor, Clauds. so, if there is ever a position nearby not bound with a subject you hated in school, feel free to apply for it :D.

I'm keeping my account on the site. Who knows... maybe one of these days someone is going to need me in Poland to do... blogging. Or internet research. Ahem. It's a whole new world out there, I'm sure these skills are in hot demand. :p

I died when I read Gibraltar. And I'll die again if you get the job :p And remember, in case you get it, get a gun! They have really good ones at the black market in there ;)

*sigh* I miss that cold hard steel... I'll make sure to find me one if I ever visit. The job was posted ages ago and of course I have no idea they'd even take me, but I just had to click on "Apply" anyway. I'll be on the lookout for more serious offers though.

Just you and a rock and a bajillion monkeys. Sounds like a party to me!

And according to Spanish Laura, the last unpussified corner of Europe where you can buy guns. Oh, wait... that would be us. I can buy them here too except they're crazy expensive.

Congrats on the new job!

LOL... Oh, it was off the market already by the time I'd applied for it. It was just the idea of me... doing these kinds of things. The last time I took a decision to move to another country, it took me about 20 seconds to decide.

LOL. That is SO you :p

I know, right? I'll be on the lookout this time, I signed up for their newsletter.
