Career Info Session: U.S. Department of State and Public Service Careers

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 5:00pm to 6:15pm

Virtual Event

Are you interested in a possible career in public service, and maybe specifically with the U.S. Department of State? Ever wondered what it's like to work in various capacities at State -- ranging from a Foreign Service Officer to policy analyst and intelligence officer -- or how to go about preparing yourself to be a successful applicant for jobs at State?

Please join the Einaudi Center for a virtual discussion about career paths and opportunities at the State Department and in public service, featuring three Cornell alumni who will share their insights:

  • Benjamin Brake, Director, Office of Cyber Affairs and Emerging Technology, Bureau of Intelligence and Research, U.S. Department of State
  • Jason Oaks, Deputy National Intelligence Officer for East Asia, U.S. Department of State
  • Eric Anderson, Foreign Service Office, Political Counselor in Islamabad, Pakistan, U.S. Department of State

This career info session is presented by the Einaudi Center's International Studies Minor, and its outgoing director (Christopher Way) and incoming director (Oumar Ba). The International Relations Minor is open to all Cornell undergraduate students interested in learning about the politics, economics, history, languages, and cultures of the world.
