I have been offered 2 jobs in Iraq in the last couple of weeks, I am passing on both but can give the information to anyone who is interested. 1. Position as assistant site manager in Iraq, manager for group of linguistics personnel. Handle their HR stuff and make sure they are at correct work assignment, liason with military command etc. Total comp approx 130k. Military NCO experience needed This Co also has openings for other jobs as well, IT, finance etc. 2. Position working on communications(radio/voice/networking) in support of Dept of State contract in Iraq. Company issues all gear and both 9mm and M4 to each person (Sounds like my kind of job). Military experience is a huge plus. Total comp = 90k Both include insurance, meals, lodging etc. For me personally, neither of these jobs tipped the scales of risk reward enough to justify taking. I make a damn good salary already and I would want to make 175k plus to go. Now two years ago when I got laid off, I would have jumped at this and if I get deployed with the guard I may kick myself for not taking this. I just wanted to make sure I passed it on for anyone that needs it.
