ODESSA - An opportunity to work overseas peaked the interest of dozens of people on Thursday.

The meeting was held on UTPB's campus.

Students and anyone else interested were invited to the free seminar.

It was all about the benefits of working overseas.

Some of those perks include your income being free from federal income tax.

Businesses often pay for round-trip airfare, housing, transportation and even utilities.

Tony Love, UTPB's Director of Career Services, says the meeting was just a first step for student's to start looking at overseas opportunities.

"The whole idea behind our seminar is to educate them.  We want to raise awareness of different cultural issues before they take that next step," Love said.
