Turkey has plenty of fields where foreigners can perform and work. Especially there are opportunities to work in the tourism, teaching English, real estate and finance fields.

Foreigners trying get a job in Turkey, have to obtain a work permit prior to arriving in Turkey and in addition to obtain a Work Visa and a Residence Permit in order to work legally in Turkey.
