Careers in the Foreign Service

Last week, Mark blogged about this article from the New York Times.  If you haven’t taken the opportunity to read his post and the related article, I would recommend doing so.  While Working World presents a variety of paths to a rewarding international career, the Foreign Service is still one of the most attractive magnets for young Americans who want to serve their country in a very direct way and who are willing to be sent wherever they are needed most.  Over the years I have been privileged to observe many Foreign Service Officers at work at our Embassies and consulates around the world, as well as here in DC.  Almost always, I came away impressed by their hard work, dedication, and wide array of tasks their daily responsibilities entail.  Those drawn to this career should definitely peruse this article.
