Nothing irks Brazilians more than to be lumped together with Spanish America; indeed, the Spanish had a completely different colonial experience from the Portuguese (as in killing the natives instead of marrying them).  Do your homework:  as in any country, the more you know about it before you arrive, the more warmly you will be received, the easier will be your assimilation, and the more help you will be offered.

Unfortunately, the number of online recourses where you can learn about finding a job in Brazil is not great.  Be aware of a lot of establishments that offer too many after you have finished their courses, or other suspicious offers.
