OK, that's good to know that I need to get an invitation before I can get a visa.

That's a little disappointing to know that it's difficult to get a work visa vs. a business visa. Are you saying that it might be difficult to find a job online or something from a school that will be willing to sponsor a work visa?

From what I understood it seemed like the standard was that if you were offered a position, a school should offer you visa support, airfare allowance, and housing. Has it changed in regard to visas? Definitely don't want to come on a tourist visa.

There are still legitimate employers who do offer all or most of these things (the airfare is not necessarily a given but it is not unknown). Essentially, what you get in Russia are a lot of schools who want to make money without investing time and money in getting things right, and some which are legitimate. You also get some in transition. (To be fair to employers, getting visas sorted out requires a lot work merely to become
eligible to invite people.)
