“The New Global Professionals: Flexible And Forward-Thinking.” Foreign Policy 208 (2014): 2-11. MasterFILE Elite. Web. 19 Oct. 2015.
This article presents young professionals working in the Foreign Service and international business fields. The article highlights each individual’s education, experience, and motivation for working in these fields.
The individuals featured in the article include: Amer Barghouth, a private investment project manager at the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) in Cairo, Egypt; Hanna Camp, who works for the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), a pan-African think tank located in Pretoria, South Africa, Christopher Connolly who works with the Peace Corp; Anisa Kamadoli Costa who is the president of the Tiffany and Company Foundation, and Margherita Zuin, who works with the United Nations (UN) as a global affairs professional on a political mission to Somalia.
“Be open to different opportunities, and don’t be afraid to see where your interests and passions take you, because there are many ways to achieve what you’re interested in.” – Anisa Kamadoli Costa
“I came to see the wider picture of how conflict is related to poverty and lack of development. Many people are not just poor, but also desperate.” – Margherita Zuin
“Living the expat life can be fun and comfortable in its own way, but it’s not the same as making a positive choice to build expertise and a real skill set.” – Hanna Camp
The Foreign Policy Journal (where this article was originally featured) and foreignpolicy.com are reputable sources for information on global affairs and business. The journal is published six times annually. Foreignpolicy.com offers over twenty originally-published articles on a daily basis and more than a dozen daily blogs and columns.
I wanted to learn about career opportunities in Foreign Service and International Business. This article provided five profiles of real people who are emerging leaders in their fields. I will use the article for inspiration and also as a resource because the article also included a summary of master’s programs in foreign policy.
