Jos in Iran ?

So, job opportunities in Iran. Would these be considered worth pursuing in light of the political environment ?

Depends.
Are you from Iran?
Are you from a country that is "friendly" with Iran?
If not, stay the hell away.

Just visiting Iran disqualifies you from the USA visa waiver (ESTA) programme.

Totally incorrect - I have been to Iran and I hold an ESTA

Having 2 passports deals very effectively with this US ESTA ban.

Merely idle curiosity in light of the politics. A now-deceased mentor flew for Iran Air MANY moons ago...loved the job, country and people. That's obviously changed now.

It is you who are totally incorrect.
I too have been to Iran. And used to have an ESTA until the US authorities cancelled it..

I suggest you enter the USA legally with a B1/B2. It lasts 10 years so is easier than the ESTA.

My Email from CBP:

ESTA Status Change

You are receiving this message because you are no longer authorized to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program.

In the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, travelers in the following categories are no longer eligible to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program:
Those who have had presence in, or travel to Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria on or after March 1, 2011
Those nationals of VWP countries who are also nationals of Iran, Iraq, Sudan or Syria
Please view additional details regarding the new requirements at www.cbp.gov/ESTA.

If you do not believe these new restrictions apply to you, you may contact CBP with questions regarding your individual case. Please see additional details and contact information at https://help.cbp.gov/app/ask.

Please note, you still may be eligible to travel to the United States with a valid nonimmigrant visa. You should evaluate any current or future travel plans to the United States, and, when possible, apply for a nonimmigrant visa approximately three months in advance of your desired travel. If your travel is imminent, most U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide have short wait times for visa interviews, and expedited appointments are available at most locations for urgent business, medical, or humanitarian travel.

To begin the process to apply for a U.S. nonimmigrant visa, you will find information and application materials at travel.state.gov.

Declaring you have not visited Iran is not particularly bright.

It's much easier to just get a 10 year B1/B2 and enter legally........

The USA does not and can not know that you entered Iran if you do not tell them and have no stamps from Iranian Immigration in the passport you show to the US authorities.

2 passports always solve these kind of issues, just like the Israel-Saudi/Emirates issue by the way. This is also the reaon why my country issues 2 passports anyway. To eliminate entry restrictions when having visited third countries.

Icelanta.....

Assuming your PPRuNe name and your location are correct, then might I say your last post is naive in the extreme.
