Applying for Overseas Jobs

Overseas Jobs / Overseas Teaching Jobs / Hiring Agencies

Apply for federal jobs well in advance of the time you will be available for employment. Applications can take 6 to 8 weeks for processing. It may take longer if written tests are required, especially in overseas areas. Many human resource departments are limiting open periods for job announcements. They also may only accept applications until a fixed number of applications are received or until the closing date of the announcement.

Recently, we have noticed that job announcements are being limited in duration to as little as one week or less. Check for vacancies frequently to ensure you don’t miss an opportunity to bid on a desirable overseas job.  When applying for any federal job, especially overseas jobs, read the job announcement carefully, highlight actions that you must take to apply and do not leave out anything. If you don’t submit all required information and forms your application may be rejected or at the very least you won’t rate “Best Qualified” for the position.
