If I don't see an opening that I like, can I just send my resume for any future vacancy?
In our ERA Job Seeker site, you can only apply for all available and active vacancies. We do not accept applications for possible future vacancies.
I don't have the experience or education that the position requires, can I still apply?
If you do not have the necessary experience and/or correct education as listed in the requirements of the vacancy announcement then you are not qualified and should not apply. This policy applies to everyone and there are no exceptions.
I have more than one position that I want to apply. Can I just send one application?
In our ERA Job Seeker site, you need to apply to EACH of the active vacancy you are interested in and of which you are qualified.
I am U.S. citizen. Can I work at the U.S. Embassy?
Yes, provided that you are eligible to work in the country and you meet the qualification requirements for the position. You MUST send a copy of any of the following documents with your application to be eligible: Dual Citizenship Certificate, Alien Certificate of Registration card, or Immigrant Certificate of Residence. If you do not have one of these documents then you are not eligible to apply. Please note that compensation and benefits for these positions are based on local prevailing wage scales and practices, which means that few jobs will pay more than U.S. minimum wage and you will be liable to pay both U.S. and Tunisia taxes.

Yes, provided that you meet the qualification requirements for the position.
How do I show proof that I am eligible to work in this country?

How long is the hiring process?
We do not review applications until after the vacancy announcement has closed and the amount of time to fill a position varies depending on many factors so we are unable to provide an estimate.
