RIO DE JANEIRO – Sitting on the beach in Copacabana or Ipanema, work is often the last thing that comes to mind. Yet to many, it means a way to stay for longer than just a vacation, providing that work can happen here in the Cidade Maravilhosa.
Some of the most common employment opportunities are in engineering (oil related), teaching, translation and tourism. There are also volunteer opportunities, although that doesn't help someone afford their living, unless room and board are offered as compensation.
