    Does anyone have a clue how to get started on this, or who to try to talk to? I've thought about it for awhile, and I just lost my job here stateside. I wanna say fuck it, and go over.

    Search Monster.com for IT jobs and do a +Iraq in the search. Should yield what you are looking for.

    I'm single, need some cash, didn't go over there while I was in the USAF so I still want to try to make a difference even as a civilian. Would look great for DoD Contractors/GS Positions as well as any normal IT job.

    You gotta be there for all but 30 days of the year to get tax break. You normally get a 35% bonus on your first 40 hours a week. You live in a tent, at least for a while. But there is teh interweb

    KBR was out with us in Pakistan, they didn't do to much other than set up the tents, do embark work and set up the internet facility for us but they make serious bank for doing so little. Deffintley worth looking into.

    Is that from when you were in the military? If so it doesn't apply. Only TS transfers to civilian positions.
