Tbh I would look outside Spain unless you know people who own businesses out there. The unemployment rate there is through the roof, business is slow in lots of pubs/bars,it might be worth having a back up plan.

I'm in college over here, you'd do well to find a job. There was a Primark opening recently and 21,000 people applied for something like just over 100 jobs, just gives you an idea how mad it is.

Unemployment in the Spanish Costas is running @ 35%. For the age group 18 - 25 it is even much higher.

Many of the English speaking peoples of Spain are retreating from where they came in the hope of a better life at home.

You have little or no chance of employment in Spain.

With the low minimum wage, your better off working a week here and relaxing over there

There was a general strike in Spain ten days ago. An air of gloom in that country at present. Looking like it well get worse.

Work in Spain is non-existent, far, far, far worse than here. Unemployment is close to 40% and for younger people it's closer to 75%. The few Spaniards I know are all emigrating to the UK or Germany.
