Foreign Service Officers
By Phyllis Naegeli

1     Do you like to travel? Does living in a foreign country sound exciting to you? Consider a career with the U.S. Foreign Service. The Foreign Service is a division of the State Department. America maintains embassies around the globe. Ambassadors, who are appointed by the president, head these embassies. But they are not alone. Many Foreign Service workers come to help ambassadors do their job.
2     The Foreign Service offers five areas of different career choices. They are Consular Officers, Economic Officers, Political Officers, Public Diplomacy Officers, and Management Officers. Your experience, interests, and education will determine which choice is best for you.
3     Consular Officers help U.S. citizens who are traveling abroad. When a crisis arises for U.S. citizens, they can go to the nearest embassy for help. A Consular Officer can help the citizen find medical care, legal counsel, or transportation back to the U.S. In certain instances, the Consular Officer works to evacuate U.S. citizens from a country in times of war or turmoil. Consular Officers also decide whether to issue a visa to a foreign visitor. All of these tasks require the officer to keep up with the political atmosphere of the country where he or she serves. Consular Officers need to have extensive knowledge of local laws and the culture of the country.
