New to Turkey, Jobs and Culture (Istanbul)

Hey Folks,

I am relocating to Turkey, I have been back and forth on short-term visas but I am currently waiting on my work permit as well as my visa.

I am just really looking for peoples thoughts on how hard it is to gain employment moving forward as an English only speaker.

I have TEFL and TESOL - I also have a university degree in Health Science, Human Physiology and Communication and for the past few years have been working as a business advisor for one of the worlds leading eCommerce companies.

I am excited to experience the new culture and am looking forward to the challenge, although I will have work when I arrive I am wondering, what are the opportunities for non Turkish speakers, and what are some of your experiences in general ?
