Public Relations and Media
Of all non-teaching positions, jobs at public relations and advertising agencies are perhaps the most difficult to obtain, but they also pay quite well and include housing assistance. There are some opportunities to do on-air work, or to appear in movies or on TV.
Some private companies and government agencies hire foreigners as editors and teachers. Editors generally have degrees in the humanities, economics, or business administration and perform activities such as proofreading correspondence and publications and writing speeches. These jobs pay well and often include housing.
