Being an English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese or Arab native speaker will be enough to get a teaching job in a language school. Many schools are looking for native speakers and ready to pay them a salary above the market. If you also speak Russian, you may think of becoming an editor or a translator.
Many Russian companies are constantly looking for highly skilled professionals in certain areas: business consultants, oil and gas engineers, IT engineers, top managers, etc. If you are a qualified and experienced specialist, finding a good employer won't be difficult.
At the same time in some spheres employment opportunities are limited: for example, lawyers will need to study Russian law or focus on helping Russian companies with foreign legislation. Foreign citizens are not allowed to work as pilots, army and police officers, public servants.
How to find a job in Russia
Most vacancies are available at Russia's popular job search websites: Headhunter, Rabota.ru, Avito. However, if you are looking for a job in a certain company or have high qualification in a certain area, you may contact potential employers directly. Sometimes employers may even create a new position for applicants they like.
