What types of jobs do most expatriate spouses/partners have? Locally based or telecommuting? Full-time or part-time? Can you comment on local salary scales?

With work permission, yes, but it's hard to get that permission. - Aug 7, 2014
If you're a teacher or work in oil/gas/finance, then yes. Otherwise, decent job opportunities are very limited. - Nov 6, 2013
Teaching, banking. Limited opportunities. - Dec 29, 2008
There are lots of jobs it seems. Our situation isn't such that we want to work outside. The pay is decent but not great. - Jan 2, 2008
