Career talk with the U.S. Department of State

Earlier this month, we also had the incredible opportunity to host a Career Information Session with the U.S. Department of State. The event, which was attended by our Workforce participants and Beacon participants from Metropolitan Soundview, gave a basic overview of what it means to go into foreign service, and the myriad of careers available to individuals of various backgrounds. 

One important issue discussed at this event was that young people often do not seek certain paths due to a lack of information on available options – during the session, participants were briefed on the educational/ experience requirements necessary for a diplomatic career, as well as the existence of the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT).

As always, we are beyond proud to provide our participants with unique opportunities!!!
