If you're a typical ESL job board whiner you'll never make it though. Got to be ready to be in a scene from CNN that we see on a daily basis almost from that part of the world.


Definitely not a whiner. I've lived in Saudi Arabia (3 years) and in Kosovo not too long after the war.

Good luck if you decide to take it. I'm considering an offer stateside that's managing education programs for folks about to depart for Afghanistan. Surprisingly good money. They liked my Libya experience.

The first thing you should teach them is that the people are called Afghans not Afghanis, which is the currency.

So I was interested in applying for the ELT position with Raytheon in Kabul. I have 10+ years experience, have worked in immigration detention centres and have Masters in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) so I feel I'm pretty qualified. I am from Australia so I'm wondering if not being a US citizen would automatically rule me out.

This requirement from the job ad doesn't bode well: As required, must be able to attend and pass USG deployment requirements at CONUS Replacement Center (CRC), Fort Bliss, Texas or equivalent location.

But the job ad doesn't stipulate that the job is only open to US citizens...

Just wondering if anyone who's done the ELT thing at Raytheon knows of non-US citizens having jobs there?

Right above Required Education, the ad states: "Must have a US passport with at least 6 months validity from hire date"

Right you are. I saw an earlier posting of the job which didn't have the US passport requirement. Alas.

Take it from me. Working in a war zone is not all it's cracked up to be. Twice I had to flee from Libya. Don't recommend it. Gunfire is scary shit.
