Roatan is like New York City…you never apply from afar. Alway be on Roatan, or at a minimum, correspond as though you are on Roatan :slight_smile: - otherwise, you will not be hired. Take it from someone who learned this the long way round.

I have noticed there are very few jobs listed online in Roatan. In your experience would you say most jobs acquired are by handing your resume in-person?


#7

@FloridaExPat, you make a good observation. We noticed the same thing. There are two preferred methods to finding a job on Roatan: 1) A Facebook Group and 2) As you’ve already noted “word of mouth” and handing your resume in person.

We don’t think this is a good way and we certainly don’t think its the most professional way. For this reason we launched Roatan.Jobs a few months ago. The new site is a Jobs Board. We’ve seen some traction but the site is still fairly new and undiscovered.

We also started this forum as a way to promote the relationship building between new comers to Roatan and those living on Roatan.

May I ask, are you looking for employment or merely making an observation?

@RoatanOnline My wife & I are looking to become ExPats in the next 2-3yrs and are doing our due diligence now. She is able to work from home but I am an aircraft mechanic/avionics technician. I haven’t had much luck finding any job listings online aside from the airport in mainland Honduras which is not where we want to be. I did however find the Roatan.Job link a couple of weeks ago but that was one of the places that I wasn’t finding much. I’ll check out the fb pages, thank you for the suggestion.


#9

@FloridaExPat that should give you ample time to foster relationships here and in person. Finding a job on Roatan is sometimes easier when you’re here. Employers are more likely to consider a potential who is already on the island over someone who plans to come but may not.

Keep in touch here on the forum and be sure to shake a few hands when you are hear next. That will go a long way.

And if you need anything else from me, I am at your service.

@RoatanOnline Thank-you for the info. I’m not looking to submit resumes before becoming a resident as I was just curious as to what the pay range would be for a job in aviation there. I’m expecting significantly less since the cost of most everything there is less. I am wondering if I should be concerned with changing fields to a career more based around the island life such as scuba instructor, etc.
