This 'little country' has given me much more than what I originally came looking for (...) and most importantly, the chance to work in one of the areas with the greatest employment opportunities in the country: the IT sector, with the same duties and rights as a native, an aspect that is highly valued as a migrant.

Karla León, from Venezuela living in Uruguay since 2017.

Working in Uruguay is a very good experience, you realize the added value of a country with more favorable policies towards workers, and with better social conditions. This is one of the things that I am most attached to in Uruguay, in addition to the immense feeling of safety that the capital generates for me.

Moving to Uruguay changed my life completely. The opportunities for career growth offered to me by this country were never given to me before. In addition, it is very advanced in terms of technology and salaries are very competitive.
From a personal point of view, being able to go to the beach all summer after working hours is priceless. I am 100% grateful.
