Working Overseas

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any good resources for overseas work? I have noodled around on USAJobs but nothing was easy to find. I know DOD has overseas positions as do several other organizations.

Its very preliminary but I'm going to retire in a couple of years and I thought either I could find a position or my wife (RN) could and I'd come along for the ride.

I really failed to travel as much as I could have when I was stationed overseas. Maybe it isn't too late.

Recently saw this on Indeed. Not sure how you feel about war zones but you'll be stationed in western Ukraine. See details below. I think this same company had a contract position for Alaska as well.
