Is there a magic bullet for getting hired on with DoD or DoDDEA schools? I have completed the application process and it has been 5 months and I am still waiting to hear from anyone for an interview and the hiring period is just about over.

It took me 5 years to get a job with DoDDS.

Your chances are better the more certifications you have. Because of the current overseas realignment, there are not that many open jobs.

But in good news, Korea is opening up as an assignment with dependents...meaning a need for more teachers.

Good luck!

From your post, I can't tell if you are limiting your search to federal jobs.

If your main interest is in teaching in a foreign country, you may want to expand your search to international schools.

An international school will work as well. Just recently I have received to responses from DoD schools in the states. My concern is with USAjobs; I am having a most difficult time interpreting "Qualifications", then getting my resume in such an order that it will be picked up by the scanners. Any suggestions on understanding qualifications?

I don't believe that teachers at international schools are federal employees, so those vacancies wouldn't be announced on USA Jobs.

If you haven't already done so, I suggest doing some research on the OPM web sites. The various types of educators are in the 1700 series, "Education Group."

Somewhere in that group there should be a narrative description that closely matches the kind of teaching experience and credentials you have.

I am not an HR Specialist but have been told that it is important that you use OPM language to describe your skills & work experience.
