What is the difference between PMC and PSD? All of the security guys I knew in Iraq were called PSD teams, even the ones that went out into the cities with the Department of State. I know most PSD teams just stand at gates and check badges, but the guys that went out and kicked in the doors were also called PSD teams. We (I am just a vehicle mechanic) could have our terminology mixed up.
This is a good place to start: http://www.scribd.com/doc/3945227/security-in-iraq
It might also be worth spending the one time fee of $50 and signing up on: http://www.dangerzonejobs.com/artman...sh/index.shtml
That website is set up a little different (you can watch the tutorial) in that you cant apply to jobs through DZJ. He simply provides a list of companies that have jobs overseas. Most high-paying and high-profile jobs arent really advertised for, but they do advertise them on their own website. Meaning, you cant get on www.militaryhire.com
and do a search for these jobs, you will only get the lower paying shitting companies like KBR on there.
) did our security and some other sub-contract stuff. Everyone that worked for them liked the company so they might be worth looking into.
The guys that went out with the Department of State were called GRS, I dont know the name of the company, but I did a search online and found Global Risk Strategies (GRS) http://www.globalrsl.com/
I hope you have extensive special forces background, in which case i year a lot of these companies contact you.
This post was geared specifically toward security detail jobs (you mentioned Blackwater and Triple Canopy) is that the kind of job you are looking for? What is your background? I have been contracting overseas for 5 years now (Qatar, Antarctica, Iraq, and now I am going to Afghanistan at the end of this month) as a vehicle/heavy equipment mechanic.
