AFSA BOOK NOTES: Career Diplomacy: Life and Work in the Foreign Service
September 14 at 12:00 p.m.
AFSA is pleased to host co-authors Harry Kopp and John Naland in a discussion of the brand-new third edition of Career Diplomacy: Life and Work in the Foreign Service, on Thursday September 14 at 12 noon. The discussion takes place at AFSA headquarters, 2101 E St NW. Click here to RSVP, or email events@afsa.org.
Career Diplomacy is an insider's guide to the Foreign Service as an institution, a profession, and a career. In this thoroughly revised third edition, Kopp and Naland provide an up-to-date, authoritative, and candid account of the life and work of professional U.S. diplomats, who advance and protect this country's national security interests around the globe. The authors explore the five career tracks—consular, political, economic, management, and public diplomacy—through their own experience and through interviews with more than a hundred current and former members of the Foreign Service. They lay out what to expect in a Foreign Service career, from the entrance exam through midcareer and into the senior service—how to get in, get around, and get ahead.
