CES Blog: Foreign Service, U.S. Senate and more

Sam Armocido (IPE '08) at the Senate Budget Hearing

If you haven't done so already, check out the Center for Employment Services' blog -- it has a lot of interesting news that is useful and interesting for IPE majors. Here's an update from Sue Dahlin:
We’re doing a series on our blog spotlighting different career paths, and this week’s post is on becoming a Foreign Service Officer. Also, in our “Connecting with Alumni” section on our website we interviewed Sam Armocido, a 2008 IPE alum, about his role as a Staff Assistant to the U.S. Senate Committee. He was recently featured in Life Magazine as he unpacked the 2011 budget.
The Foreign Service (U.S. Department of State) is an interesting career choice. One of our IPE alumni currently works at the U.S. Embassy in Nepal.

And that story about Sam is cool. He is really living the dream, don't you think?

If you are interested in reading about life in the Foreign Service, I maintain a blogroll of more than 200 Foreign Service blogs at I have a separate blogroll for blogs by future FSOs navigating the hiring process.

Correction for this post: CES stands for Career and Employment Services (instead of Center for Employment Services).
