Overseas civilian contractor jobs can be found through government agencies such as the U.S. Army Contracting Command or through online commercial employment bureaus, including JobMonkey.com and Monster.com. Job seekers can access available contractor positions through the Army at many office locations across the country or online at ArmyHire.com
The Army Contracting Command has contractor positions available worldwide, with some located in war zones. Many contracting positions, however, are located at U.S. military facilities in peaceful regions such as Germany, Korea, Italy, Japan and Belgium. The Army has dozens of civilian employment offices in countries located near major military bases and installations. Prospective contractors can apply for many available positions online through the ACC, but users must establish a USAJobs account to upload resumes.
JobMonkey.com has a list of available contracting jobs for which users can apply online. The jobs often pay more than similar positions in the United States, but often feature higher levels of danger. Available contracting fields include health care, truck driving, telecommunications, food preparation and construction. Contractors can also apply at Monster.com, which has a wide range of positions in both high- and low-risk locations. However, the highest-paying contracting positions on Monster.com are located in high-risk locales.
