Hello There , I'm a Fluent English Speaker and speaks Arabic too .I'm an Network Engineer in Orange Business Services Egypt, and I don't speak Russian at all My Belarussian girlfriend and I will marry soon.I don't know what life will look like if we live in Belarus while I'm making my first steps learning Russian. However, My concern is can I find a job in my field or even a part-time job in any other field like tourism while I speak only English till I master Russian or I won't be able at all to find a job? My field is a hot commodity in Minsk , but don't know whether I can find work as Network Engineer without learning Russian at the beginning or not.of course I'm willing to learn Russian, but I'm talking about the situation when I first arrive in Belarus as an only English Speaker. I hope that each one has a piece of advice for me to share it with me to help me to make the right decision. Thanks!!

Hi You need first to apply, for a Residence Permit based on your marriage with a Belarusian citizen. Then you need to translate your CV into Russian/Belarusian and start searching vacancies. Check job portals such as jobs.tut.by. It may take time. You also need to take Russian courses to improve your language skills.
