How to get a job overseas

Please write this out on a big sheet of paper and read over and over…. I once was where you were…

Here is a couple of scenarios

To get a job overseas in the IT industry you need a Secret clearance and a couple of IT certifications

A company cares about thier customer for example you work for Raytheon in Kuwait or Iraq or Afghanastan your salary is;

Kuwait 100,000

Iraq 130,000

Afghanastan 150,000

Raytheon is an American company doing business in these contries THEY are working for the US Army who pays the salary of then pays you.

The US Army has a sheet or requirements they need to fill I can tell you one that is big is the DoD 8570 which you can see at

The US Army is told by the Department of Defense to get thier people certified on the DoD 8570 and like you know stuff rolls down hill in that regard

*** Getting that certification *** You have a couple of options

1 find a job in the IT industry like Adelphia in Buffalo, work there for 2 years

until at which time you take your first IT certification test and FAIL… certainly this may not happen

lets examine it a little further certain people get discouraged when they FAIL and decide not to attempt again or they let

thier so called friends dictate thier response to a challenge… You may not need to hear this mumbo jumbo but maybe you

have a friend who lacks self confidence you just a wondering generality instead of a meaning specific, I believe it is my

duty in life to open doors of success as others have done for me.

2 Going to a training center in the USA such as or I believe there is one in Getzville next to ITT technical institute…..

3 Going to a training center in India such as …. ….

4 get a free bitspyder account its a non virus torrent site download training for A+, Net +, Security+, CCNA, CWNA, MCITP or MCSE 2008  take notes as if you were in a class room setting

There is also a comapany CMS I believe or Client Logic that gives you telephone skills and gets you prepared to hear the word sorry I dont want or NO thank you for your time…
