Iraq is a country in Western Asia. The official languages are Arabic and Kurdish.

Below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in Iraq.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • Gulf TalentRecruitment and jobs in Iraq.
  • BaytThe big Middle Eastern job search site.
  • NaukriAnother job search site big in this part of the world.

Other Websites and Blogs

  • About.comA good short but sweet article on jobs in Iraq.

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • Overseas Jobs:  I find that there is often significant overlap between the postings on this site and that of other sites. Nevertheless this site has been around for a while.
  • Go Abroad: I’ve always been a fan of GoAbroad. In fact, on the visa information portion of my website, you will find where I have linked to their global embassies directory. They have a good job portal too.
  • Linkedin: Last but not least, this huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest.
