Whether you're a new or experienced contractor looking for jobs in Afghanistan, Kuwait and similar areas, you have to do 4 things to succeed:

Network with others

Stay current on what's happening in the overseas contracting industry

Keep up to date on new and pending contracts

Research and apply to companies the way they want you to


Here's how Danger Zone Jobs can help you...

I worked for 16 years in Kuwait and created Danger Zone Jobs to help the contractors who were regular members of our weekly Thursday night poker game. These guys worked for ITT, Dyncorp, MPRI, CSA, KBR and others.

Their big problem: not enough time for job hunting. They were busy working 12 hour days and the last thing they wanted to do was spend all their free time running around the internet.

Sound familiar?

Since I had started Overseas Digest, one of the first websites for Americans abroad back in 1996, I thought I could help them.

And it worked.


Now the original seven guys have been joined by thousands of Danger Zone Jobs members since 2005.

Over the past ten years, we have worked hard to make Danger Zone Jobs as valuable as possible for the members.

Danger Zone Jobs is just one tool for your overseas job search, but an important one.

To save you as much time as possible, we spend hours every day looking for news, information and developing tools.

Take for example the four tasks mentioned earlier:


Network with others

Danger Zone Jobs has a members only forum where people can ask questions and find answers. If you've been on other forums, you know that some of them can get pretty nasty.

But not ours.

Because everyone is a member, the discussions are civil and helpful.

And as of August 2015, there are more than 23,000 paid members, including over 20,000 on the forum to network with.


Stay up to date on industry news

Several times daily I check various sources for contracting information, updates and news important to members. This includes:

  • Company Mergers/Sales
  • Company News
  • LOGCAP IV Developments
  • Working Overseas
  • Money, Taxes and Insurance
  • Current Work Conditions
  • Casualties
  • Crimes and Investigations
  • Future Outlook of Contracting
  • Lawsuits
  • New Regulations, Laws and Government Oversight


Stay up to date on new and pending contracts

Every work day at 5pm, the Department of Defense publishes contract awards that are $6.5 million or greater. We review all of them and immediately post those that affect overseas contractors.

We scan company websites daily for any new press or investor releases on awarded or upcoming contracts.

We review daily contract protests published by the Government Accountability Office and post those affecting overseas contractors.

Every Sunday night, we post combat zone related Contract Bids, Requests for Expression of Interest, Awards, Supplements and Amendments that have been publicized for the previous week, including CENTCOM AOR, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and others, from various agencies.


Research and apply to companies the way they want

1. You'll save tons of time with the one-stop job search tool, a convenient means for searching various job engines for danger zone openings, plus the employment pages of over 300 different company websites. One click is all it takes.

2. Imagine the time you'll save because every week because we check and then highlight the companies that currently have overseas jobs posted on their sites.

Are you thinking: "Can't you find some of the information free somewhere else?"

Yes, definitely. All basic raw information is free if you are willing to trade enough time to discover it.

We collect and edit some of the best information, advice and sources around, and present it to you in a way that you can quickly deal with and act on.

There are bits and pieces of it in dozens of different websites.

And, if you care to spend the hours daily looking for it, you can get most of it free.

But is it really free?

The first thing you need to consider is the amount of time and effort spent tracking down the information you're looking for.

Your leisure time is important. The last thing you want to do is waste it in front of a computer trawling through hundreds of pages and emails trying to find some useable information.

Danger Zone Jobs acts as your personal filter: processing all that "free" information into something you can use, saving you tons of time.

Can you spare hours everyday to do the same? Now you don't need to.


You can join Danger Zone Jobs today
to get all these benefits and more for the
risk-free, rock-bottom, one-time membership of just... $49

(even if you use the site for years...
which most of our 23,000+ members do)

And here's why it's risk-free: 

A No Hassle, No Questions Asked 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
  • We strongly believe that you'll find the information on our site useful, time-saving and important.

  • But we understand you're concerned about buying something over the web.

  • So if you don't like it, send us an email and we'll refund your money. Simple as that.

  • No questions asked, no hard feelings and risk free to you.


No need to ever renew...

This is a one-time membership to Danger Zone Jobs, like a subscription to a great service that never ends.

If you find yourself looking for another job a few months or 5 years from now, we'll still be a resource for you to go back to.

If you ever lose your username/password, we'll be happy to send it to you immediately, no matter where you are.


 But come on...
a one-time membership of $49?

The answer is simple. Danger Zone Jobs is a full-time business. Not a hobby, not something we will get bored with. Not something to only update when the mood strikes.

Look at some of the sites that try to copy us. You'll see the difference instantly.

The most important thing our site offers is time-saving convenience and a wealth of useful information. You've heard "time is money" and it's really true when you're looking for your next job.


So, $49 (only once, and never expires) seems like a fair price for all the benefits. A higher price would just be greedy.


Think of it like this...

The longer you use the site, the cheaper and more valuable it is:
$49 divided over 2 or 3 or 4 (or now 10) years...

Danger Zone Jobs started in January 2005, so those early members are really getting their money's worth.

Thumbs Up...

I'm a person who likes to follow things to the source. I had the same questions many of you did about Danger Zone Jobs.

So, first I invested in a subscription and then recently on my travels to Kuwait I had the pleasure and opportunity to meet and talk extensively with the owner and editor. I give a thumbs up to both the web site and it's originator/owner, William Beaver.

A valuable, easy to use resource for the Hot Zone job hunt...

I would like to begin by saying that his site is very easy to find by virtue of it's name. The site in my opinion will attract a wide gamut of potential employee's seeking High Risk High Pay jobs, ranging from skilled professionals to adventurers, and braggarts.

Regardless of site users this site provides an invaluable resource by combining hiring notices and hiring information in one site. Bill has built and orchestrated this site to assist in finding gainful employment in hot zones around the globe.

The layout of the site once a membership is purchased is very straight forward and still requires the users to search and comb the site for companies providing employment. As in anything else you have to be aggressive in obtaining solid and gainful employment, this site supplies the company profiles and links to career contacts for specific companies.

You have to be aggressive when using this site, Bill will provide you with the information and you have to do the best you can with it, the site is not here to find you a job it's here to assist you by providing informational resources.

Bill spends a tremendous amount of time and resources to obtain the information for his site, not to mention the cajoling he has to do with representatives of the companies on his site.

Only you can determine if the price is worth it that may lead to your dream job or another contract. If you spend the money to subscribe to Bill's site and you land a $150K contract then the money was well worth it, if not then you may feel differently.

Either way the Danger Zone Jobs .com web site is a valuable, easy to use resource for the Hot Zone job hunt! In my opinion I would highly recommend Danger Zone Jobs. com as a resource for the booming international job market.
