Hello all,
I realize I asked this question last year, but it is more relevant than ever this year and I would love to hear any advice that I can get.
I am a second year student at the University of Toronto, majoring in Economics and minoring in French language studies. I am fluent in English, Russian, and French. I was wondering what kind of a job I would be able to find in Moscow this summer? I have taught English at an early learning centre in the past but I want to find out if there are any other options for me.
Any advice, or potential job offers starting in May, would be very helpful, thanks!

What would you say to working as translator/editor for TASS?

I worked for them in the early 90s. It was a common practice back then. Feel free to contact them at ums@itar-tass.com tel. +7 (499) 791-0143, or any of their numerous competitors.

If I were you, I would also take a look at vacancies at local translation agencies. For instance, here (http://abbyy-ls.com/contacts).
