IWAP The International Women’s Association of Prague brings together people from more than 35 nationalities. The group’s dominant language is thus English.

Working in Prague
Finding a job in Prague does not necessarily require knowing the language. There is always the option of teaching English, but even if this is not your cup of tea, many companies located in Prague are looking for English-speaking staff. Besides websites such as Jobs.cz, which cater to both Czech and English-speaking job seekers and provide links to major corporations in town, a good expat resource is the classifieds section at Expats.cz. This website is a generally good resource for the large English-speaking expatriate community.
