      There are a few groups on LinkedIn dedicated to Armenian professionals, they do post job openings in Armenia and the Diaspora from time to time.

        Thank you, Armanen – I think I belong to a few of these groups. You are right, most of the postings are about jobs in Armenia proper. I’m interested in jobs in Artsakh. I think that the government there or their embassy in DC should have a special page explaining the process and job openings.

        I understand that the pay and benefits are very different from what we have in the US. But what does it take to move there and have a job? Language requirements, living conditions, vacation time, health care, schools for kids, etc.?

        I think RepatArmenia does a good job in overall promotion but does not have specifics, especially for Artsakh.
