    How hard to get a part-time job for a graduate student? (english speaking only)

    Hello there! I went to MSU on an exchange programme two years ago. Now I'm planning to pursue a master degree in Moscow.

    As I'm doing budgeting now, I would like to know how hard it is for an English speaker to find a job while studying. I don't speak any Russian at this moment.

    I'm specialising economics and finance and would love to get some relevant experience.

    Hope someone can share some job search websites. So far I only have LinkedIn and Glassdoor. But most of the jobs listed there require proficiency in Russian.

    Thank you for the time! Have a nice day guys

    First you may look at your visa and find out if you are allowed to work on that thing?
    And if you are from a "visa free country" regarding travel into Russia, you may not be allowed to work at all when you are ion Russia, check that out.

    Thank you for the replies! I am from Hong Kong, and I am planning to get a student visa.

    I learnt from the internet that international students are allowed to work beyond class time.

    Strictly speaking, when here on a student visa, you can only work on campus during the academic year when classes are in session, but you can work anywhere during holidays and summer.

    You can probably make some cash tutoring 1 on 1 (no work permit required), especially with a rare language like Cantonese.
