    Does anybody know anything about this, because I've seen a few Engineering professors mention that they did it, and it looks quite appealing. I found this on the VSO website

    Civil engineer - Guyana

    TITLE: Civil engineer
    TYPE OF EMPLOYER: Regional government
    COUNTRY & LOCATION: Guyana, Linden
    JOB DETAILS & PURPOSE:

    Enhance the regional democratic council’s capability to design infrastructural works and projects, especially water, drainage & irrigation works, because the Ministry has faced serious flooding, erosion and drainage problems.
    Improve the local staff ability to prepare Bill of Quantities and tenders for contract.
    REQUIREMENTS:
    First degree in civil or environmental engineering.
    Three to five years experience in civil engineering.
    Experience in civil engineering in tropical countries is an asset.
    DURATION: 24 months
    It looks like a good experience - anybody know anybody who did something similar and what they thought of it?

    I looked into doing this but decided against it because of the time commitment. The minimum contract is 2 years! That's a long time to commit to living in a 3rd world country that I had never experienced before. What if I'd hated it????

    As it says in the advert, experience is an assert and i didn't/don't have any.
