LC Diplomat in Residence Niels Marquardt will conduct an information session and Q&A to help demystify the U.S. Foreign Service for LC students and describe the process for getting in. 

Ambassador Marquardt, an LC alum himself, served 33 years in the State Department as a foreign service officer, including a decade as U.S. Ambassador to four nations in Africa and as Consul General in Sydney. He now volunteers in the Career Center, advising LC students on the foreign service and other overseas career options, including teaching in international schools, the NGO world, and multinational business. Come hear what he has to say!  

(And if you can’t make this session, feel free to make an appointment to speak to him, by going to the Career Center page on the LC website.)
