CAREERS IN WORLD AFFAIRS by Inc. Foreign Policy Association


Email this review


Most of this handy little reference book is packed solid with concrete information on job opportunities and qualifications for positions in the U.N., foreign governments, international business and voluntary and religious organizations. Preceding the listings of agencies (complete with addresses), schools and jobs, is a word of caution summed up by several unofficial ""ambassadors"", on the most common problems in adjustment and human relations any American is likely to encounter, be he Peace Corpsman, missionary, teacher or businessman. How the modern foreigner regards the American overseas is also an important issue here. Frederick Stoerker concentrates on Peace Corps possibilities, Harlan Cleveland discusses new concepts in the businessman-diplomat area, Gerald Mangone points out the many cultural discrepancies that have comprised major pitfalls in our relations with foreign countries. With President Kennedy's remarks concluding the process of establishing direction, the reader focuses on all the agencies, jobs and training schools available. A brief overview for any prospective candidate in international work.
