USAG Yongsan - Casey has a number of US government, contract and volunteer positions available. Government jobs are divided into appropriated and non-appropriated fund positions. Spouses of active duty and federal civilian employees have hiring preference upon arrival for all government positions. It is not uncommon for applicants to wait 6 months or longer to acquire a position matching their education and/or experience. The length of time spent unemployed varies with the applicant's skills, determination, and timing. The job market is continually changing as people relocate into and out of the area. Peak season for relocation is June through August.
For a listing of government positions that are appropriated (GS) and non-appropriated (NAF), you can go online at USAjobs.gov and search for positions in Korea. It is advisable to go online prior to arrival to utilize the resume builder and have your resume and supporting documents on file. Your current duty station's ACS Employment Readiness Manager can help you create a resume that details all your experience.
Once you arrive, stop by ACS at Camp Casey in Building 2451 or K-16 Building 302 (CAC Building) to explore all your Community employment opportunities in Appropriated and Non-Appropriated (NAF) fields, contracting fields, tuition assistance programs and volunteerism.
When traveling overseas, it is especially important for family members to carry employment records and important documents in their carry-on luggage.

Ensure that you have all the records of addresses that you've lived for the past 7-10 months. In some cases, you may have to provide the those information.
