I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I was wondering if it is possible to transfer from DDESS to DODDS or are they two separate entity and the transfer does not happen? Also, if you are made an offer, does the offer letter state what your benefits are? I can't seem to find the benefits, i.e, px commissary use in Puerto Rico.

Thank you

newdodea12345 Marie-Lorraine, This is the so comprehensive; thank you so much for posting. I don't know if the position is part-time, I would be hired as an ESL teacher for High School.

newdodea12345 Mary-Lorraine, I just tried to check EAS but something is up with the DoDEA website. I will have to check later. I will call the principal and ask.

I would love to work for DoDDS overseas. I have never considered stateside because of the relocation fees and housing which I pay on my own. If accept the international...See More

Teach I have friends who waited years to get into DoDDS even though they were in DDESS. However, I was hired from DDESS for a job in Japan this year and it was the first I had applied. However, I had spent 3 years overseas in Okinawa as a local hire and I knew people throughout Japan which I am sure helped me to get an interview so quickly.
