Hey guys,
Im moving over to boston in may for a while from Ireland. Just wondering what the work situation is like over there? Any type of work really, looking for maybe a bit of labouring or the likes? Work permit and all that is legit too so no hassle there. Or even any ideas of websites etc I could find work.

Also, I box here at home and just wondering what boxing club ye could recommend near boston?

Thanks

I know nothing about boxing, but for some reason, Charlestown comes to mind. (That might be the town that the movie The Fighter is based on.) I would google boxing in Charlestown, MA.

Boston has its fair share of employment agencies. I suggest doing a search and contacting them. Most if not all have websites to which you can upload your resume. From there someone from each office should contact you about your experience. Also, if you are looking for strickly labor type positions, I believe there is that type of category on craiglist.

Goog luck with your move.

Here's a decent Boxing Gym. The city of Somerville borders Boston, and this Gym is a 10-15 minute walk from the Davis subway station.

Somerville Boxing Club
125 Highland Ave
Somerville, MA 02143
617-628-3066


There's also a great MMA club in Central Square, Cambridge and that's on the subway as well.

The Fighter is based on Lowell. There aren't too many real gyms in the city anymore as it has become more and more gentrified. Someone referenced one in Somerville. Also, the old neighborhoods that are associated with Irish are really gentrified and somewhat stuffy and the Boston Irish who live there arent too friendly (C-Town and Southie). I know a lot of Irish immigrants who are still in Dorchester though. Somerville isnt bad either, especially Davis Square. Depends on your age, what you like to do really...

Ill be jus turnin 21 before i go over like..things are very quite over here work wise so I want to try somewhere else. Theres a lot of people emigrating out of Ireland my age at the moment to the likes of Australia and the US. I went for a couple of months last year lived in Cali but visited the East coast and I prefer it (i think).

Yeah i know Bostons full of Irish, ,2 of my uncles used to live in Dorchester back in the 80s and 90s. But I dont have the slightest idea about the city!

Are you saying you have a visa to work in the US? Which one?

Shaneire,

One of the better sources for work opportunities, in my opinion is Craigslist:

craigslist: boston classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events
boston/cambridge/brookline all jobs classifieds - craigslist
northwest/merrimack all jobs classifieds - craigslist
north shore all jobs classifieds - craigslist
south shore all jobs classifieds - craigslist
metro west all jobs classifieds - craigslist

Best of Luck to you.
