The one concrete question: What can she do what the Indonesian can't? It costs a fortune for a company to hire a foreigner, so they must be sure she will be worth her value of course.

Her knowlegde of languages may help her is she is fluent in all four, but for the others it's just some boring statistics that most people can give, so that's not of any value now. (of course I understand she is graduated but I'm telling you from another perspective, money to be earned.

Al eens gedacht aan (freelance) vertalen? Daar houd ik me in Yogya mee ledig, en ik kom niet om van de armoe.

OK, dear neighbour, let's see if I can manage... (even though this seems to me a Dutch `onderonsje.' ) What I suggested was, that she could try doing freelance translation jobs. It kept me alive, kicking and rather well off in Yogya for the last twelve years, out of more than fifteen. Of course, the alternative could be setting up an Indonesian portal Emoticon: Smile

It's all about guts and nothing about educational background (although it certainly helps when you're a litlle bit more clever then average). Most of us (I mean foreigners/expats) speak fluently Indonesian here (without being graduated in Leiden), so that is nothing special. You have to be a selfmade (wo)man or otherwise ....
And if you want to do social work.... well that's nice as long as you bring in a lot of money (or your labour is cheap), but it is different when you are going to cost a lot of money.

One advice for your sister .... let her stay away as far as possible from the "gondrongs" or "Yogya-cowboys" because as soon as she gets involved with them, it is going to cost her money either loosing all respect from the common Indonesians and then you can forget a decent job cause you will be stigmatized 4ever.
Create your own job like everybody is doing here. Good luck!

At the website http://www.werkenbijdeoverheid.nl/
internal jobs are posted as well. Currently there are some translation jobs in East timur (to rough it up)
Furthermore, http://www.vacatureblad.org/ offers some international jobs as well.

Also an option: try to locate the websites of international schools in Indo, and see wether they have job openings.

Wat voor werk je zoekje? Inmiddels ben ik ruim 6 keer in Indonesie geweest. Dus heb enkele kontakten opgebouwd. Ik weet dat er zeker mogelijkheden zijn om nederlands te doceren. Er zijn nederlanders die dit doen, zoals bijvoorbeeld in Menado (Sulawesi). Is dit wat je zoekt? Heb je westerse filosofie in je studiepakket gehad? Ik weet - wel of niet tegen betaling - een
studiecentrum bij Baturade. De leider hiervan is meestal enkele keren per maand in Solo. Hij reist meestal via Jogya.

And now in English. Thank you for your remark Jeroen.

What kind of work you are looking for? In the last years I have visited Indonesia 6 times. So, I have made my contacts. Its possible to teach Dutch.
For example in Manado. Are you also familiar with western Foilosofie?
I know a centre close to Baturaden.The coordinator is once week in Solo.
