Return to Home Page

From time to time, we have been asked to let our members know of available paid positions.  Because the News Bulletin appears only quarterly, and employers usually need prompt action, we have been unable to help in the past.  The speed and simplicity of the Internet now permits a change in this practice.  We post all such opportunities on this page, and remove them promptly when we are notified that the position is no longer open or a year after the original posting. 

THESE LISTINGS ARE PUBLISHED AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS.
There is NO FEE for employers or applicants.
Job listings should be limited to about 15 lines so they can be completely displayed on a netbook or tablet screen.  See the format requirements here.

LISTINGS APPEAR IN ORDER OF THEIR POSTING DATES.

Requests for volunteer help can be posted on our volunteer page.  

PLEASE NOTE:  We have not investigated any of the listings shown.

ABOUT FOREIGN EMPLOYMENT

When contemplating overseas employment, take the time to research the offer carefully.  Make certain of the financial condition of your prospective employer.

PERSONAL SAFETY.  The U. S. Department of State (http://www.state.gov/) publishes advice on Crisis Awareness and Preparedness, Travel Warnings, Emergencies Abroad, Passports, Visas and more.  Links are provided to the home pages of US Embassies and consulates throughout the world, offering the most up-to-date possible information on conditions at the location you’re considering.

SALARIES.  While salaries often appear very low when translated into American dollars, remember that foreign costs of living are also frequently low.  (For example, we are told that recently a Rangoon, Myanmar [Burma] pedicab driver who received a $100 tip bought a home with the money.)  On the Web, you can get an exchange rate quote on any currency at any time from http://www.exchangerate.com/.
