International Career Toolkit Series will be hosting an event this Friday at 12:00-1:30 p.m. in WWPH 4217. Usha E. Pitts will be giving a talk entitled "Careers in Diplomacy". The U.S. Department of State is one of the few employers who will pay you to live and work abroad without requiring a specialized skill. It hires Americans over the age of 20 from all walks of life. If you are attracted to public service and want to live abroad, come learn more about Careers in Diplomacy from Usha Pitts, a diplomat with 19 years in the Foreign Service. She will give you tips on preparing for an international career and taking the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT). She will also tell you how to use your language skills to work abroad with the Consular Fellows Program (now hiring speakers of Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Mandarin, and Arabic). See more information at careers.state.gov, or come to an information session.
