Who wants a job Surveying for up to 135K per year?????.......
I wouldn't go because I would then be that dammed surveyor from Timbuktu who doesn't know squat about the local uniqueness of boundary surveying. 😎 😎
Nope nope nope.
$135k is crap for that part of the world.
If it was tax free and they paid my housing I'd seriously consider going for a year or two. No family to haul around would make it pretty simple to manage.
Those of you with low-balling colleagues need to share this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with them!
They'll come back rich!
Did I ever tell you about the time I almost moved my family to Iran. I was offered a lucrative survey job and it would have been a great opportunity for the family to learn a new culture and way of life. I turned it down because the formal contract letter I received had glaring spelling and grammatical errors (it was an American company) and that told me they weren't quite the quality firm I wanted to work for. The Iranian revolution broke out just about the time we would have arrived. That would have been a disaster. I'm glad I paid attention to my intuition.
