Indonesia’s English-language daily, the Jakarta Post, often has job listings, many of them for permanent, professional posts. Another English publication is the Surabaya Post.

Some backpackers’ enclaves – like Jalan Jaksa in Jakarta or Sosro in Yogyakarta – host veritable gossip networks serving up the inside scoop on everything from teaching jobs to cheap accommodations.
