Working in Russia

Foreigners aren't as in demand as they once were but there is still plenty of opportunity in Russia and in Moscow in particular. The mythical times that long-term expats will tell you about with moist eyes, when the foreigner was king in Russia, are now long gone. These days the majority of top jobs are filled by locals and unless you're coming here with bucket loads of cash it's going to be difficult to make your mark in business. However, there's plenty of teaching, freelance, and internship opportunities available, which pay a little bit better than an average Moscow salary.
