Hello Everyone!

I'm Tityana an expat in Ankara from Jordan. I visited Turkey last year for the first time in my life (12 days in Ankara, 4 days in Istanbul), and as I have some relatives and cousins living in Ankara, I was encouraged to come back this year and try to find a job and settle in the city.

I'm English fluent and speak Arabic. Although some Turkish and expat friends encouraged me and told me with your languages and skills you shall find a job soon in Ankara, still no luck, and I've been here for almost 4 months! But having my fingers crossed  :rolleyes:

Any advice from anyone here?  :D and please don't say Istanbul has more jobs' opportunities for Expats  :) I didn't like it as much as I felt comfortable in Ankara.

I am a 20year old Ugandan girl looking for a job in Turkey. I have experience with children and home duties
My preference would be a live in job if I happen to get an opportunity for me to go to Turkey

Tityana! I’ve been in Istanbul for few weeks now and before I even landed mostly all people I knew said the job market isn’t that great in Turkey and so far what I’ve learnt is true.

You may keen trying as English speakers aren’t here much and hopefully you’ll succeed in landing a job soon.

For me, ain’t finding no job but have got myself busy trying to establish business in real estate sector.

Cheers have a nice one🙂

Yes true! it's actually hard with the current global economic crisis to find a job anywhere, and everyone is complaining! But yes with the languages that I speak, there's still a chance to find a good job hence most Turks in Ankara don't speak English.

Thanks for your good wishes. All the best for you too in your new business.

I am Ahmad Sharifzadeh, from Tabriz, Iran and living in Istanbul, Turkey. I know three languages (English, Turkish & Azeri, Persian) very well. I am currently learning Arabic, German, and French.
I published three of my e-books by Amazon, and I taught a number of courses and workshops at different universities and institutes in Iran. Additionally, I worked as an aviation supply specialist for 6 years. I also worked as an editor and translator.
Currently, I look for a job as a proofreader/editor, aviation specialist, or translator in Turkey or Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, etc.


I am so happy to be in an expact group. I have been in istanbul for one year and half. I  am trying to establish my life here as learning a new carrer and other needful things for life.

Welcome kardes; where in Turkey do you plan to go to?

hi, my name is youssef, i'm from tunisia. i've joined this community in an attempt to travel to turkey.

i didn't consider it before, but i met someone special from turkey, that i'm willing to do anything to be with. i've been saving and attempting to travel to turkey for 6 months now.

i'm an IT Technician, i do repairs to computers and phones, and sometimes to other electronics (video game consols, tv recievers...) i'm really experienced in this domain. i've been practicing for 8 years now, but i graduated and got my diploma in 2018.

it'll be nice to meet more friends here. i'm interested in turkish culture since it's related to my culture. tunisia and turkey are related to each other in many things.

thank you

I am new too - was living in Turkey for a few years and now back in New Zealand.
