Feel open to reply in general to the topic or if you'd like to reply specifically to my situation or both you are invited to reply more specifically. I've been getting mixed reports from people I have been chatting with on how things in Mexico are going regarding capital inflows and employment rates. I heard that tourism is doing well due to the low value of the Peso recently. USD seems to be 1 or 2 pesos to the dollar higher than it normally has been, but it doesn't seem drastically higher. perhaps 5 to 10% higher value. So if this is benefiting tourism (although I understand that low season will continue for another month or so) are import prices driving costs up for locals or is it business as usual? Second question being, what is the work environment like. I recently finished an honors BA in cultural type studies (honors history major, anthropology/archaeolgy, applied languages, and legal studies minors), but I am still doing some certificate training in construction trades (masonry currently, but then hvac, plumbing, electrical, and welding) up until the end of August. I am considering doing a masters but I am also interested in potentially looking for work in the place I love to be the most, that being Q.Roo area. Are there any demands for any types of workers that have supply shortages in Cancun/Playa and area currently? Although I am hoping to go into masters studies when my current year of training is completed, I am curious how the current and future job market will be seeking any inputs from extranjeros. As the weather gets colder here I find myself remembering how much more I like being down there, but I am basically tied down here unless I try to do grad studies down there, or get work or something. What is going down there in regard to the economy and employment field? An update of my biopage William Ashley | Homeage. Always seeking more information on how I can go about establishing myself down there on a longer term basis, and getting a non tourist visa for the purpose of residence or employment. While I could just go down for 6 months, I want to stay progressive. I am also wondering if anyone has info on quarries of limestone, laws regarding quarrying limestone, concrete industry in Q.Roo and if there is a demand for masons in Q.Roo. Last I was aware the construction industry was in the progress of scooping up day labour, however I am curious if there is a demand for construction industry workers, and if there is a college of trades, or formal apprenticeship system in Q.Roo. I am also curious if any seawalls have been proposed to protect coastal tourist areas from expected water increases, using hydraulic roman cement or other materials that will survive and strengthen. As there are volcanos in central america, I would think obtaining volcanic ash for hydraulic roman cement for seawalls would be not as cost prohibitive as other areas. Does the Mexican gov has any plans to build coastal defences to searise? Already areas are prone to flooding in places like PDC? With such vast amounts of limestone, why have seawalls not been built? Any chance of employment in building seawalls? I'd like to specialize in stone/masonry etc.. my studies have heavily focused on medieval / premodern construction, including mesoamerican archaeology. My current trades programming however is more related to ICI and residential. Are there any English based grad programs that would be able to gain entry on an upper second class honours degree in Q.Roo or in Mexico that would have field studies in Q.Roo? In absence of that any good technical schools that I can learn more Spanish, and get calculus and other math skills to start civil engineering training? Very interested in getting my foot in the door. Any ruin sites that need help for excavation etc..? Anyone have any idea?
