How Safe is Safe?
So is Afghanistan a dangerous place to visit? The simple answer to that is, not as dangerous as south side Chicago or many areas of New Orleans. The fact is that there really is no place on this planet that is perfectly safe, so trying to find perfect safety is a wasted effort.
A Lot of Rebuilding Work to Be Done
There are many civilian jobs in Afghanistan that are now opening up and it is expected that more will open in the near future as the country rebuilds. Virtually every country the borders Afghanistan wants to see it stabilized, so there are a lot of governments chipping in.
Get All of Your Papers Together
Step one, would be to get all of your papers together. That would include your passport, travel visa and any other papers that you will need relating to your employment status. Then the best place to look for a civilian job in Afghanistan would be online.
Private Security Work
If you don't mind people trying to kill you from time to time there is always private security contracting work that is available in both Afghanistan and Iraq. However; with so many governments determined to rebuild the country there is plenty of other work as well.
Learn the Language and Customs
One thing that you should also do however, is to study the native language of Afghanistan before you head out. Also, get good book that covers all of their customs as well, so you will have some type of understanding of how things work socially over there
