Executives in international companies usually have to do at least a three year stint abroad.

The question is a bit different here. I'm quite certain the answer is 'stint'. The problem is: why 'service' cannot be used? My answer is that 'service' is done in the army and not in work, but I'm really not sure. What do you think?
