Hey Neil -- if you have the funds/time you may just want to get on a bus down to Mar del Plata and look around there for something seasonal -- it's going to be tough finding a job in BA up until about march as most companies are in "holiday mode" and don't even think about taking on new staff or new projects. How's your spanish? I don't know if that's going to limit you or not. You should do a search through the board, I think there's been some ads before for customer service positions (working in english) -- maybe you could take a position with one of those companies until you find something else? Have a look on the BANewcomers yahoo group as well, occasionally things pop up there.
