I currently work for the DOD and the agency I work for has positions available in various countries. I have seriously been thinking about applying for some. I talked to my husband about it, and he seems to be on board with it also. We currently have a 3 yr old and would like to have one more child at some point.
a) what age would you recommend living overseas for children?
b) how hard would it be for my husband to get a job? Obviously we would attempt to go the route of trying to get him a DOD job also but if he doesn't get hired there, could he work any where else?
c) Anyone a DOD Civilian living near a base? Are you allowed to live on base? Can your child attend the base school?
d) I know the DOD pays relocation costs, but did you find that it cost you a lot of money to make the move and live there still?
Obviously I have a lot more 'research' to do but figured I would check here to see in any international nesties currently work overseas as a DOD civilian and have an experience to share. I have some coworkers who have done it but most had military spouses and just traveled whereever their spouses went.
