I WANT TO BE A DIPLOMAT! How can I apply for this cool job?

DiplomatU.S. diplomats are called Foreign Service Officers.  While this job may appear glamorous (worldwide travel, government-paid housing, generous pay and benefits), the job can be very challenging and sometimes dangerous.  Serving as a FSO requires fortitude, flexibility, and the ability to adapt to changing situations and cultures.  The job application process is extremely competitive.  Most FSOs speak at least one foreign language and hold an advanced degree.

If you want to join the State Department as a FSO, your first step is to pass the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT), which measures your knowledge, skills and abilities, including writing skills that are necessary to the work of a FSO.  The FSOT is administered three times a year.  You can register to take the FSOT in Korea.  The next test date is February 1 to 8, 2014.  For more information see:  https://careers.state.gov/
