Last minute move to Rio - Looking for work (Rio de Janeiro)

Hi,

I am moving to Rio this weekend with my boyfriend who got a last minute job offer. I unfortunately will only have a tourist visa but I would still like to find some work to stay busy during the day while he is at work.

I am a life scientist (master) with experience in clinical research but am willing to work as an English tutor (I have been a tutor for 4 years on the side) or something similar.

Do you have any advice for finding work in such a situation? do you know if it is even possible without regular working papers? I am Irish BTW, so fluent English, and I can speak a bit of French but zero Portuguese!! Hopefully the language wont be such a problem to learn!

Looking forward to hearing any tips you guys might have.

Thanks,

Lyndsey
