Saudi Aramco has been advertising for jobs on Houston radio stations for a couple of weeks now. "Bring 2 copies of your resume".
I forget which hotel or convention center it is being held at, but you can go to Saudi Aramco's website and find out and look at their job listings.

Aviation, nursing, instructors, medical, oilfield, engineers,--it's a long list.

In the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s, the Arabian kingdom required contractors to surrender their passports. I heard horror stories about good technicians being held as virtual captives because they were too valuable for the kingdom to let them leave. I hope this situaiton has eased since.

One guy built a crate, addressed it to a company in Germany and prayed that they would put the box in the pressurized part of the plane. He broke out of the crate at Rhein-Main and got a replacement passport from the Frankfurt consulate.

I know quite a few people who have worked or still are working in Saudi or Kuwait. If I were younger, I would jump in with both feet.

being an american contractor in foreign countries can pad your bank account & move you up in the world financially,, the danger or discomfort element pays well , there is always risk.
normally you can get out of the country before the knife reaches your throat
when you work in a foreign country where there is any chance of harm to you make friends with a FIXER
a FIXER is a local who knows how to get around bureaucrats,customs ,getting things done smoothing the way,,& when a crisis arise, where you want to get out ,before your friends beg for embassy help
if in a country on vacation for a few weeks ,a fixer with a car is best way to travel ,spend a few shekles for security & a Local that has connections

Cannibalization? Seriously, Motorola wanted to buy all our old surplus Saber portables to use for parts on service contracts. The radios were discontinued years ago but were still popular then. That was five or six years ago.
