Submitted by Capt. Picklepants
Capt. Picklepants (2528594) writes "I have been feeling malaise about the I.T. and technical job market in the United States. I'm interested in doing some I.T. work for our government in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa. I've heard it pays very well. Got any advice, or pointers, aside from the usual combing corporate websites and social networking?"
