How's the Overseas Market for cleared professionals?

I'm hoping to gain a security clearance soon and I'm curious about any potential opportunities overseas, specifically in networking.  Does anybody here have experience working with DoD contracts abroad?  
I see Vectrus is pretty popular here, but most of the jobs I've seen with them require being in the war zone.  I would rather work somewhere that's a little more family friendly.

    Clearancejobs and clearedjobs are the places where you want to look.

    Yeah but those website won't even let u register if you don't have clearance already. Is there any sites where u can apply specifically for overseas positions? I have linguistics and engineering skills .

    Not true because they have no way to check your clearance. I personally would never provide PII to a website in order to search for or apply a position. 

    In order to keep your integrity intact, your best bet would be to find some of the headhunters (recruiters) who fill entry-level positions and can provide an initial clearance for you.

    There's always Vectrus.

    How soon are we talking here? Best bet is to search on indeed using keywords like "oconus"
