How to Find Work in Iraq

by Susie Dow Tuesday, Jun. 03, 2003 at 5:03 AM

Since compiling our initial list of reconstruction contracts in Iraq, we have received inquiries on how to find information on job and business opportunities in Iraq. A common complaint is how difficult it is to find out where to start. Unfortunately, the US Govt has not made it as simple as they could have by posting all of the relevant information on one web site. Those unfamilliar with government contracts are placed at a disadvantage as a result.
