I recently graduated from a four year undergraduate program and would like to begin a career with the US Department of State. I do not feel that I have adequate work experience to qualify, yet the internship programs are only offered to current students.
What is the best course of action for someone in my position?
Most of our Civil Service and Foreign Service Specialist opportunities have specific educational and work experience requirements. However, there are no specific educational or work experience requirements for our Foreign Service Officer positions. If you are worldwide available, you may want to consider a career as a Foreign Service Officer. You can link up to information within the "work" tab at our website. There, click on "Foreign Service Officer."
