Opportunities and job vacancies to work in Russia they grow more and more and being prepared to get the best position adapted to your skills and needs is a strategy that you should not overlook.
Here I leave 5 things you should know to succeed in the job search in Russia:
1 You need a permit to work
To work legally in Russia it is necessary to have a work permit.
So you should legalize you in Russia.
Russia has control over work permits for foreigners, since its laws give priority to any professional who is in Russia.
In case you are outside of Russia, it is best to contact a company that requires a qualified staff with your skills and experiences, so that it is the company that requests you as an employee.
A good idea that I recommend and personally I have practiced, is to contact the Spanish-speaking media in the country.
These types of companies have facility to hire foreigners.
2 Record the rising sectors of Russia
One of the key things when leaving for a new country is to look for the most demanded trades and professions in that country.
For Spanish speakers there is a great opportunity to teach Spanish.
You can access the Russian job portals that offer these offers whenever you want from the Russian Lover resources.
Many families in Russia are interested in having their children learn several languages, English and Spanish are often first on that list.
Take advantage of what you already know!
Yes, you should learn russian language.
Among the most demanded sectors are construction, technology, engineering, transportation and education.
Russia is developing a lot, and not just its employment sectors. Also their cities.
The place where you are located will give you more or less job opportunities in Russia.
Of course, Moscow and St. Petersburg as capitals are the most demanded to work and with more offers.
But you can take surprises and find better jobs in other cities of Russia in full development and looking for specialists.
Check what they are the best cities in Russia to work.
3 Russia has an affordable cost of living
Moscow, like almost all the capitals of the countries of the world is the most expensive city in Russia.
However, it is not the most expensive in Europe.
The main expense What you will have when you come to Russia is the rent of the room or the apartment.
The other expenses such as food, transportation and entertainment are quite reasonable.
4 Knowing Russian is not essential, but it is very important
It has already been commented on in the previous section but the Russian language is a determining factor for your job success in Russia.
English may be the indispensable language for some highly qualified jobs for foreigners.
But even if you ask a staff to master English, it is recommended that you know Russian even at a basic level.
Remember that you will also have to do shopping and social life, so learn Russian It must be on your priority list if you want to work in Russia and integrate into its culture.
If you plan to stay and make life plans, it is a mandatory requirement because in addition to formalizing the legal residence permit papers you will have to pass a basic exam of the Russian language, laws and history of the country.
I advise you first of all to reflect a little on what it means work in Russia.
Or if you don't like depending on others, learn to earn money on your own to live in Russia without a job.
5 Russian culture is preparing more and more to accept abroad
For many years, Russia did not contemplate receiving any foreigners nor was it usual.
However, more and more a country becomes open to the world.
Moscow and St. Petersburg are the cities most prepared for tourism.
There you can find restaurants with international food, hotels for different tastes, shops open to international fashion, etc.
In addition, since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, this country has prepared to receive foreigners in droves.
Now the country is open to all cultures of the world.
