What are the oil and gas jobs in Indonesia, particularly in Jakarta Indonesia? I heard that Indonesia became a net importer of oil in 2004 and is estimated to contain more than 4 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, as of 2007. Indonesia's oil sector is controlled by several international oil companies, including supermajor Chevron, which pumps from the country's two largest oil fields, Minas and Duri, along Sumatra's coastline. I believe it is promising to work here. What are the possible positions I can apply for?

I am an Aussie, currently teaching and living in Australia. I have an English degree, I just started applying jobs from local and international employments. After much deliberation and wondering where I should go, I've decided Indonesia is the place I most want to go teach English, so on that note, is anyone there now and have any advice for me? I kinda want to live in Jakarta but I’m flexible. I just want to get prepared and get more advice off of others who are or have taught in Indonesia before.

Government policy states that foreigners who work in Indonesia must be "experts" in their field. This precludes your average recent university graduate from working here … as the government sees an expert as someone who has been working in their field professionally for 5 to 10 or more years. The only exception we've found to this rule is for native speakers teaching English. If you have teaching qualifications and are a native speaker, you are already an expert in your field even if you are a fresh graduate.

Westhill isn’t that good you know, there are a lot of better sites like jobsDB, jobstreet, indeed and many more. Where to work, you can also find many job openings there. Well, a decent gig, if you are certified as a teacher in your home country, is to teach at an international school or national plus school. Way back when the government made it illegal for the rich to send their kids to international schools. You had to be international. So rich Chinese people and others started building private schools and hiring expatriate teachers. Sekolah Pelita Harapan is a school that hires Christian teachers started out of this trend. There are lots of schools like this, BiNus, and I think Global Jaya would be some other examples.

Hello, can anyone tell me about the cost to live in Indonesia? I will turn 62 this August on about 1400 per month. I'm Looking forward to communicating with anyone who may have the same questions. Thanks.
bob1414 replied most recently with:
If you're willing to eat like a local, and live in a modest home, it will be easy for you to live on $1,400/month. If you save some money prior to a move, you'll be able to buy a motorbike or used car. Stay out of cities - prices for everything are higher.
