Hello to all,

i am new to the site and trying to get work in afghanistan.
I am currently applying to coprporations such as PAE & Dyncorp.
was wondering if anyone out there could provide any assistance or help on this.

Currently living in Australia and happy to work abroad for extended amounts of time.

thanks in advance and hope to hear from you soon.

sorry i cannot offer assistance. but can give some current info on work there. PAE has reduced their work force/pay benefits. it was v. good work a few years back but no longer. Dyncorps has a group there but the company just pulled out. to rebid for bigger/better/same. no one likes to say much. a small contractor has taken over Dyncorps contract and workers (spouse is one of them). all temporary. AND it has gotten more dangerous (perhaps). rocket attacks roughly twice a week against Bagram base. you may want to rethink employment options. best of luck!

endless internet searching. a major key is "classification". you must have some kind of clearance. secret is really a start although you might be able to work with less. they don't want you on a military base, seeing what you might see for example, without some kind of "clearance". it is about security and secrecy. but also money i am sure. i am from the US. watch/read any news for how dangerous it is nearly everywhere in Afghanistan. none of what i am saying is 'classified' just current and could be discovered by anyone that looks/asks.

Kabul is safer than other provinces as most expats live here. Wish you all the best.
