Hi there! you can work as a TEFL teacher in companies / English institutes. Many companies hire English native speakers.
Check this site www.carlosoviedo.com.ar (go to "oportunidades laborales" and then Rubro 1: EMPRESAS, once in there, look for post No 9).
Hope this's helped you! :)

Wow, it s very difficult for young people to find a job, I think u can find a place working in a hostel, if u speak english, or in a restaurant for tourist, if u speak a foreign language u have, chances.

If u speak perfect english or other languages such as italian, german or french it would be very easy for you to work in a callcenter. It´s a part time job (g hs per day) and u´ll earn enough money to live here. I already worked in two call centers here, one in english and one in italian and they are always hiring. The biggest one here is Teletech. U can apply online at www.hirepoint.com.
It´s essential that u get a working visa or residency certificate. That allows you to work legally in Argentina.
You can also try working in a hostel. They might even let you live there.

The whole residency and work visa is quite difficult to obtain here if you do not marry an Argentine or have several thousand dollars to invest. This could take up to or more than a year to even obtain...so while it sounds like a good idea to work in a call center, it is not as easy as it sounds. Being a foreigner, like myself, your best options are to work under the table. I have put up fliers and taken out small ads in the newspapers stating "Native English Speaker for Conversations Classes" and have had great results. I hold my classes in a quite bar. Otherwise, I agree, a Hostel would be another great option.
How is your Spanish?
