Still waiting on an email from either Rex or Katherine. If anyone has some insider tips, here is my email...Postaldog2k2@hotmail.com :bang:


Do not expect to receive an email so quickly. People take vacations, work at various locations, and go to many meetings in the civilian aviation world. Your lack of patience will drive you crazy if you do not put it in check now. This is especially true if you plan on working overseas. There are many things to consider. These contracts are often put into motion more than three years before the hiring process begins. Sure, they gather resumes for the talent, but, they are not hired. Most of these positions are posted as "Contract pending" or something like that.

Depending on the country that the company is dealing with, this could be lengthened even more than three years. Some companies try to underbid the larger companies to get the contract, but, they are not able to deliver when it is all said and done....

Your situation is not unlike many others in "the biz." We wait, and wait, and wait, and wait to receive a call or email. Weeks and even months go by with nothing. Then, out of nowhere, you have five job offers from five great companies. Be patient. Don't wait for one answer from one company. Apply for many.

Ummm..... Maybe because you often get shot at.... What's your life worth? They pay around $150K take home, depending on the job, of course.

That was my point. Working in the middle east. Whats your life worth?

50K in Saudi Arabia or UAE working for an AlSalam type company.

Or 150K working for DOD at Bagram?

Having just returned from Bagram...
I was never "in fear of my life"... even when the 107mm went off 80 meters from my room. Safer than most places in the States. It's where many units go for "R&R" to get out of the field.

If you want nothing but "dollars", go for it.

Although I'd like the cash,... I'm not willing to spend any more time in that shithole to earn it.

Your mileage may vary...

Huggy...
I spent a few months in Bagram back in 2004 and I felt safe enough. I was active duty back then...You say "if you want nothing but dollars, go for it." What else is over there if not dollars? I am in it for the money. If all goes well and I keep my head down, I figured I can do some years over there while trying to finish my masters program and get a job teaching when it is all said and done. Now, I just have to get "my foot in the door." When this happens, I am looking forward to meeting all of you! :cheers:

If you want a job. Here is what you do.

Get a cell phone and never change the number.

Set up a professional Gmail address.

Use an address that you will have almost forever. Like your Moms house.

Build up a Word Document resume. With the above three in it.

Scan you documents. And put them in a word document.

Go to this web page.

www.jsfirm.com

Apply to every job you see.

Wait for the calls to come in.

Keep a record of every call you get. You will need them later.

Pick one that you want.

The documents are anything you want to include. 

A/P License
dl
Training Certificates

Yes if you click on search international. You will see all the jobs. 

Don't worry to much about the qualifications. If you have 5 years and they ask for 6. Go ahead and send it in.

But if you have 3 and they want 30. Then it's not worth it.
