By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Here is another "class" of email I receive regularly, from people who are vaguely interested in possibly moving to Panama but they really have not done enough homework yet: "I will be considering moving to the David, Panama area next year, and seeking information on what Telecommunication carriers are in the area. Landline or wireless. I have over 25 years in the telecom sector and currently working for Verizon Wireless in Phoenix, Arizona. I would need to get a job there and I wanted to ask if you could pass my resume around to you're many contacts and supply info on the in's and out's of getting established there. Thank You in advance." The basic answer is that it's relatively hard to get a job working for someone else here in Panama unless you're a Panamanian. Most people who need an income start a business and hire people. Panama loves it when you start up a business, and they also try to make sure Panamanians get the jobs first before foreigners. In any case, please feel free to add your comments below, and thanks.
