Interviews! Possible Employment

Last week, I got a call from a firm in Manassas VA. The firm scheduled a phone interview for a job in Afghanistan. I did the interview, and I will find out something soon, I hope. Then on Tuesday, a firm called me about a possible job in Afghanistan, and to expect a call on Wednesday. And sure enough, I received a call from the project leader, in Afghanistan. The interview went about as I expected, no offer. This unemployment is really bad. I want to return to the combat zone, before the whole show is over. And if I can get a job in Saudi Arabia, that is even better. No combat.

Still trying to return

I was laid off on 24 January 2013. The firm lost the funding on the contract, and I was laid off. I began my job search immediately, trying to return overseas. I have had a couple of contacts, and I get emails often. To the people who are assisting me in returning to work, I am grateful. I am now in for two(2) different jobs with different firms in Afghanistan, and one in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi job looks promising, but it can drag on and on. I am optimistic, that I will get hired by someone soon. I am also looking for work in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area. There are firms hiring here. Maybe some company can use me. I found out Friday (June 7), that my brother-in-law was laid off. I hope he gets something soon.
