Job Opportunities after Studies

Career opportunities are short in supply in Kyrgyzstan, but however it is not impossible for expats to find a job in the country, Kyrgyzstan has still some leading industries, in particular, agriculture. And yes, there is a lack of local professionals.

Kyrgyzstan, due to its size and location, was one of the poorest countries in the Soviet Union, and it has not fared much better since it gained its independence. A third of the population lives in poverty, According to the CIA World Factbook and the UNDP. Kyrgyzstan is a mainly agrarian economy, with cotton, meat, wool and tobacco being the main things that are produced. Cotton and tobacco are surely the biggest exports. Unlike its oil and natural gas rich neighbors, Kyrgyzstan has few reserves, and imports most of its oil and gas from abroad. The economy relies a lot on foreign worker. Kyrgyzstan ranked 70th in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index 2013. 

Because of the fact that Kyrgyzstan’s services sector is quite undeveloped and the mainly agrarian nature of the economy, there are few job opportunities for expats. Many expats working in Kyrgyzstan are employed by NGOs, and the UN Jobs board sometimes has openings advertised. Also, it is important to keep in mind that the working language in Kyrgyzstan tends to be Kyrgyz or Russian rather than English, so if you do not speak either of these languages fluently you will often be at a disadvantage.
