This official U.S Department of State app is designed to educate those interested in careers in the American diplomacy, or more specifically, diplomatic careers in the Foreign Service, and allow those who are unfamiliar with the Foreign Service to discover what it’s all about. The
State Department’s Foreign Service employs U.S. citizens who are either Foreign Service Officers or Specialists. The Foreign Service Careers app explains and provides information on the five different Foreign Service Officer career tracks: Consular, Economic, Management, Public Diplomacy and Political as well as the eight different Specialist areas: Administration, Construction Engineering, Facility Management Information Technology, International Information and English Language programs, Medical and Health, Office Management and Security. In addition, aspiring diplomats can watch videos and learn about the experiences of State Department Employees who have chosen this career, as well as take practice tests to help prepare for The Foreign Service Officer test (FSOT). Those who download the DOS Careers can connect directly with a State Department recruiter. Just click on Attend an Event and you can find recruitment events close to your geographic location. Or contact a Diplomat in Residence (DIR) closest to your geographic location. DIRs are career U.S diplomats who are located throughout the United States and are responsible for providing guidance and advice to students, professionals and the community about Department careers. You can even explore the day-to-day responsibilities of Foreign Service employees when you choose the Interactive Experience.
U.S. citizenship is required for all Foreign Service careers.
Ratings and Reviews
I have been trying to take an exam and it’s been weeks and I can’t finish it because it kicks me out every time I start to use the app. I am really trying to find out more about foreign careers and I can’t even do that on the app that is supposed to help us with exactly that. Please fix the app!
Was amazing to begin with...
And I was able to find a local diplomat to speak with, take practice exams, etc. However, now the app crashes almost immediately. Would love for there to be a fix as this app is otherwise a wonderful resource.
Like others have said it was great when freshly downloaded but after about a month it is constantly crashing, can’t take the exams or even see the other sections
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
