Republic Square, Yerevan, Armenia

Armenia is a landlocked, mountainous country in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia. The official language is Armenian.

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

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.

  • Job Finder is one of the largest job search sites specific to Armenia. Use Google Translate if you are an English-speaker and want to navigate the site.
  • A good job search engine with Armenian job opportunities.
  • American University of Armenia: The American University of Armenia is a great site to check out if you are in Academia. They also have a summer study abroad program if you want to gain some experience in the country (without the longer term decision of getting an actual job).
  • You will find that the listings on are mostly geared towards Armenians, but you can’t score if you don’t shoot. Translate your resume and send it in. See what happens.
  • Career Jet: I’m sure you have heard of Career Jet. It is a giant job search engine. They have search listings in Armenia.
  • Career Center: Career Center has job postings, internship, and scholarship opportunities.
  • MyPerfectResumeHandpicked sites that enable you to search for employment in specific countries and/or regions around the world.

Teaching English

Teaching English will be your easiest option (if you are a native English speaker that is). All of the sites below are pretty similar and have a massive amount of teaching English job options. Browse through each of the sites for any Armenia job opportunities. Also, be sure to check out this cool table from the International TEFL academy that shows how much money teachers can expect to make in various countries around the world.

  • ESL Employment: Not the most beautiful interface, but who needs a pretty website when you have so many English teaching job options to choose from.
  • Total ESL: Also an overly busy interface but a wealth of job postings for teaching jobs abroad.
  • ESL Cafe: Dave does a great job in compiling some of the best job openings from around the world.
  • Tesall: Big teaching jobs aggregator.

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • 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.

There you have it. The best places to find jobs in Armenia as a foreigner. For information on visas for Armenia, be sure to check out my Armenia visa page.
