U.S. Department of State Information Session

The mission of a U.S. diplomat in the Foreign Service is to promote peace, support prosperity, and protect American citizens while advancing the interests of the U.S. abroad. If you’re passionate about public service and want to represent the U.S. around the world, a challenging and rewarding career is waiting for you. The opportunity to work and experience cultures, customs and people of different nations is truly a career unlike any other. The work you’ll do will have an impact on the world. You will be asked to serve at one of any of the more than 265 embassies, consulates and other diplomatic missions in The Americas, Africa, Europe and Eurasia, East Asia and Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia. Some of these posts are in difficult and even dangerous environments, but working in them affords great challenges and rewards. Julie Ruterbories, Diplomat in Residence at Duke University will be presenter. Ms. Ruterbories is a Senior Foreign Service Officer with 21 years of experience in Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and Washington, D.C.

 Paul DiFore '13 and Tomas Husted '15 both served as interns summer of 2012.
