working in rome

 

During the Summer of 20roma11 I lived and worked in the eternal city. I worked for a Pub Crawl and lived in the staff apartment with 8 others from: America, Bulgaria, South Africa and Australia. It was literally one of the best three months of my entire life. If you have ever seen the Jersey Shore…it’s pretty much like that. Nothing but a party (and you actually get paid to party) and your landlord is also your boss. It had its pros and cons for sure, but I had a great time. Here’s a video of what my life was like everyday for 96 days in the summer of 2011 :https://emilysjourneysabroad.wordpress.com/travel-videos/nightlife-in-rome-with-eddys-tours/

For anyone who is interested in similar work, you can try googling Pub Crawls in Europe and send them a quick email with your resume and the fact that you like to work…but you also love to party. If you have the personality to handle it and can guide drunk people around cobblestone streets, then you should do it. People skills is essential for obvious reasons and you should also be able to actually work. The money was good too.

If Pub Crawls aren’t your thing, maybe working at a hostel will be or maybe you can work as a Tour guide.romaa

Some ideas:

Become a Bike Tour Guide in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin or London maybe? http://fattirebiketours.com/

Work at a kick-ass hostel in Greece: http://www.thepinkpalace.com/jobs.html

Or, like me, work on a Pub Crawl in Europe: http://www.colosseumteam.com/index.php/recruitment

  1. Hey there! I love your blog so much!
    I’m (hopefully) starting uni in september to study italian and so I’m considering applying for the pub crawl job in rome. Could you tell me more about the experience and the ‘pros and cons’ in more detail? much love xxxx

    • Hi! Thank you so much for your comment :)
      That’s really exciting that you’re going to be going to study abroad there, you will have the time of your life. The pros are a little obvious: learning a new culture/language, traveling, learning alot about yourself, eating gelato and pizza everyday because you can and meeting some incredible people. The cons? Probably just monetary. I cant think of much else. Make sure you save enough so you’re comfortable once you’re there. If this is an issue for you, I must say it is quite easy to find an under the table paying job like nannying or teaching english. If you have any more questions, feel free to email me emily.se.brooke@gmail.com xx
