“Overseas Jobs; Working in the Wider World OCONUS” is not just a guide to finding a job. It is about honing your current skills, or, starting from scratch to target your dream career. It is also about helping you tune and project your personal power by defining your personal goals and refining your efforts to achieve excellence so you can write your own ticket to the widest parts of the world. Excellence can mean the difference between being offered prime assignments in ideal locations with good pay and living conditions, and less attractive assignments where no one else wants to go. (However you may need to accept a less attractive assignment in the beginning for the opportunity to showcase your excellence)
