Types of work

Types of work will vary. Being bi-lingual will definitely help in your job search however, these regions include English as part of their school curriculum so you will find many people speak English well. This means if you only speak English you can find work in office based positions, hostels and in coffee shops and restaurants. As for most of the winter the area is covered in snow there is the possibility of working in the ski centres.
