As I've mentioned, my DH and I are both American but would love to live abroad with our young DS, at least for a few years. One poster mentioned the US State Dept which definitely has some good opportunities, but for those that just decided you wanted to experience something different, how did you go about it? We both work now so one of us would need a pretty well-paying job I guess. My DH is in sales and I work in university research admin/finance and we've both been working in these fields for about 10 years. I guess I always assumed that people who got jobs abroad were just better, smarter, faster than me and that I wouldn't have a chance.
