How do you search for a job in Russia? What are the Russian job websites? Are there opportunities for dual English and Russian speakers? Thanks.

If you are not a Russian citizen, in order to work in Russia in any capacity and in any language, you would need a work visa and a work permit. These can only be had through sponsorship by an employer in Russia which is allowed a certain number of work permits per year, based on a quota system. The employer has to apply for a certain number of work permit/visa slots by May of the previous year AND demonstrate the necessity of hiring a foreign worker for a given position.

It gets more complicated from there (apostiled and translated degrees, health screenings), but even if an employee gets approval for all of this process, it takes approximately a year to complete from beginning to end.

The most popular search engines in Russia are Yandex.ru and Rambler.ru. Using these you can search for anything (jobs) Russian. Cyrillic would be mandatory.

I am a Russian citizen, dual citizen of Russia and Canada. I was looking for internal info from Russians (Russian-language websites) since I haven't been in Russia consistently for 15 years or so. Maybe there are other websites that we are not aware about.

I guess I have to join Russian equivalents of City-Data and ask people there.

I haven't decided yet for sure, just exploring opportunities. One of the reasons is even though I left Russia, I left it before all the economic boom that's been happening for the last 10 years or so. Kind of fascinating, the annual growth in double digits. Developed countries don't enjoy that kind of growth, so even if you may be frustrated with some negative sides of Russian life, (which I admit I was glad to leave behind) , for some people here life can seem too staid, nothing like exploring new frontiers .

Another reason is - my kids who were born here with a Canadian father, who speak only English. I would love to immerse them into Russian language for a while.

Excuse me, please but I assume come back to Russia is a bad idea.
It is nostalgie only.
One my friend, ex-russian women lives in the France for 8 years.
She affraid visit the Russia very much!
Although she was born there.

Once she decided... She was walking and exclaming - Wow! It
unbelievable! There exist a lot of cheese! There can buy an original france's wine! How many good cars in the streets! etc.

Contemporary Russia is very different from old Russia with her empty shelves.
Unfortunatelly, Russia still country limited capabilties.
Yet.

Right. I know what you mean. And still, believe me, at times various encounters remind me why exactly I left Russia.

It's just I'm afraid we are speaking from the opposite sides of the mental canyon, so to speak. I will try to explain: I am not impressed neither by cheeses anymore, nor by cars or wines. Perhaps you remember Onegin, who had everything one's soul desires? What does a person do when everything is within reach?

Not only in terms of things and objects. In terms of a career, as well. I climbed the ladder, been there, done that, have no desire anymore. In fact, I live a very simple life now, the life that many minds here in NA treasure more than any skyscraper jungle.

It's just we are at the opposite ends of the road. I remember being in your shoes. I never imagined to ever being interested in getting back to Russia. I used to have nightmares of me coming back to my Russian apartment building, without any return ticket/visa. I had a very strong culture shock here for a couple of years.

I guess I am at the stage where what's on the shelves doesn't matter as much. Something else matters, like - my children, instead of saying "My mother is Russian and I can speak Russian a little", should be able to say "I am Russian". That kind of stuff.

I think that Superjob.ru is one of the best websites for finding a job in Russia.
I like Russia because despite minuses Russia has it's charms as well and I don't understand how is it possible for Riiksman's friend to affraid visit country where she was born and grew up...
