Contract overseas jobs are relatively common, particularly in the construction, maintenance, and security industries. In a contract job that’s overseas, you typically travel abroad to meet the needs of the assignment as set forth by the government or your agency, typically a private company specializing in a narrow range of services. Most jobs require temporary residence in a single area, but some involve constant international travel and have you living out of hotels or similar housing instead. These jobs often allow for independent work and the opportunity to provide freelance services on a project. This is particularly common when working on or near military bases, embassies, or other sensitive facilities. Other types of jobs may include teaching and traveling healthcare roles.
