Another Database of International Jobs

Here’s another helpful job site for those seeking international jobs (you need to register, but it’s free)

This is in addition to the three sites I provided in yesterday’s post:


How to Find an Overseas (non-State Dept) Job

“Get a Job…”

 lyrics by Bruce Hornsby from The Way It Is


The great thing is that there are hundreds, thousands of international jobs that many of you can find right now.  The pay is good, the work satisfying and you will live overseas.  Plus you can do this faster than you can join the Foreign Service…

Sure, it helps to have a degree or two to get one of these international jobs, but there are plenty of entry level positions.  Some of the jobs are in the developed world, but many are located in emerging countries where opportunities abound.

A lot of the jobs focus on development, including health, social services, teaching and so on.  But others work in areas like good governance, democracy, human rights, refugees, conflict resolution, etc.  In other words, there are all types of jobs.

The following three websites are a great place to start your search:

Take a look at these and tell me what you think.  I’ll be adding individual organizations’  job listings in a coming post.  And then I’ll tell you about the easiest way to find a job overseas; it’s going to cost more and it’s not for the faint of heart, but I know scores of folks who scored a great job through this method.  Stay tuned.
