Fascinating Work, Brilliant Colleagues, High Pressure Environment
Interagency Weapons Removal Task Force Member (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 31, 2016
Hard working and smart co-workers, learned a huge amount about foreign relations, international affairs, managing teams, diverse cultures, and the importance of interpersonal skills in making any effort a success. A typical day of work involves lots of reading, writing, advocating, negotiating, and briefing (written and oral). The hardest part of the job was moving every two to three years to represent the United States as a Foreign Service Officer at Embassies abroad and the family disruption this caused. The most enjoyable part of this job was the people I met and the experience of living and working in fascinating foreign countries.
