If you were in my shoes who would you try to get on with? 37 years old, married w/kids, 11k total time, 8k pic (emb145), willing to relocate (ME, Asia, probably not Africa), open to corporate, fractional, etc. Have applied to, or in the process of applying to... EK, EY, Jazeera, United Aviation, GF, and CX.

Any thoughts? Thanks for any insight.

Depends on your family. Some can handle certain contries better than others.

After researching these jobs and countries for the last few months, both on the web and speaking to those living there, it's obvious the family's going to need a sense of adventure and willingness to "go for it". Luckily they fit the bill. I'm not too worried about the country we end up in.

I'm more concerned about where my experience might actually be considered competitive. I realize the market and those looking for jobs is changing daily and I wonder if there's any one place I should concentrate my efforts on or just "apply everywhere" and see what happens.

Thanks again.
