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?

Pretty much just at the embassy or international school. - Oct 19, 2017
Some spouses telework, others have jobs at the American school while some work at the Embassy. Salaries for spouses tend to be about half what they would be in the U.S. - Oct 7, 2016
I don't think so. Unless you can get a job at the Embassy. - Jun 18, 2014
No. - Sep 13, 2010
Not really. Perhaps for a self-motivated Russian-speaker. - Jul 20, 2008
If you teach, there are opportunities. As for other opportunities, I'm unaware of them; however, they may exist. - Jan 29, 2008
