The Foreign Policy Association (FPA) has always been a favorite resource of mine for foreign affairs news, events and job searches. For those living in New York City, FPA is offering seminars and courses as part of its “university” program.
They will cover getting jobs in the Foreign Service (International Diplomacy), as a Foreign Correspondent, in International Development, Global Finance and other topics. Registration can be completed at the link above. A related seminar is Sep. 20 on “Working around the world”:
