Hi, I am a 33 year old single Indian lady (of Goan origin) looking at settling in Portugal, preferably, one of the cities where I can earn a comfortable salary. I am a communications manager, holding a post graduate certification. What are the job prospects for a corporate communications-related opportunity in Portugal? I want to bring my parents along with me. I don't speak the language but am open to learning it. My mother speaks Portugese fluently. I'm keen on the country because of the culture, work life balance, senior friendly infrastructure and friendly atmosphere. Look forward to your response.

Hi there,

Unfortunately it can be difficult to find a job in Portugal - most job opportunities are circulated via word of mouth so it can be difficult to find opportunities without a network there. As you are in communications, you may be able to work as a freelancer if you are so inclined. For this and other info about finding a job, please see Working in Portugal. You might also find the Visas for Portugal and Work Permits for Portugal pages useful.

Best of luck with the job search.
