I just finished my certifcation from a culinary academy in Dallas. I have been trying to find a way to work overseas for a little while. I'm really interested in Spain. I'm not having much luck in getting things moving especially in the area of work permits. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Thanks, Becky

There's a company with a website called
HRCInternational that claims "HRC International is a global exchange organization offering career programs"


The only catches are-
"Costs of a career program:
Besides the insurance cost, you will need to purchase a round trip plane ticket to Europe.

Finally, HRC International an administrative fee of $395, which includes any applicable visa fees.

You don't pay this fee until we have found a suitable career program (with the exception of a $75 prepayment).

I can't vouch for them.

Has anyone ever delt with them?

Good Luck!


PS- Corey, that picture really isn't you right, it's Spike doing his model thing. ;<)
