really the right place for that stuff.  Just a note that it doesn't have the reputation for being the friendliest forum.  Lots of very skilled and knowledgable people, but also the ego that goes with it.  Just stick to breif direct questions.

If you're not looking to do any 'hi-speed' stuff like tactical medicine, KBR is hiring. You spend your time on an FOB and are responsible for the medical care of the KBR employees on the FOB. They offered me a job for 150k/yr when i was in Iraq on Uncle Sugar's dime. I think their job website is www.kbrjobs.com

Thanks again. Last offer was about the same as I would make doing EOD. I like being a medic much better.

If your a combat medic, or your a locked on guy with military (Infantry, SOF, MP) or police experience, and personal protection experience with EMT-I or paramedic national registry, then we could use you over here.  DynCorp is looking for qualified PSD medics.  Look them up on the web under DynCorp International LLC.

You guys mean paramedics?

130k!!!!!!
DAMN, REAL medics don't make that kind of money during our entire contract!!!
That's just WRONG!

The last ofer was about $185 and now it's all untaxed due to being in a combat zone. I did apply with dyncorp but haven't heard back yet. Im hearing bad stuff about KBR screwing over there gys. ANyone confirm or denie this? Im a 20 year paramedic as well as active EOD. Youd think someone would be jumping to get me first. Hummm

185-188K is about industry standard.  

Only the first 80K is tax free if you stay out of the states for 330 days out of a 12 month period.  

You will hear about every company screwing over someone.  I'm happy with my company.

20 year paramedic and active EOD, you would be a great asset over here if you also have protection experience, military or police experience, and can handle living in an austere environment.  

If you have the right creds, keep calling DynCorp or Blackwater, you might get their attention.

This has changed. It's all tax free now due to being in a combat zone. I have the IRS paperwork in hand. Some of the guys that went first and stuck around are getting big ole refunds now. No time limit, no time out of country, it's all tax free! Now it's worth my while.
Any other leads?

$150,00 to work for KBR as a medic?  Not sure what recruiter you talked to but he wasn't telling you the truth.   Blackwater, Triple Canopy, Dynacorp, etc pay better than $130,000 but you need the background to get on with them and knowing someone doesn't hurt either.

A lot depends on your qualifications and where you are willing to work.  Working outside the wire pays a lot better, but the number of IEDs and VBIEDs has about doubled in the last couple of months.   The number of contractors maimed and killed doesn't make the news very often.
