Students offer advice to SFS kids, would-be Foreign Service officers
Do you want to see the world and serve your country? Mike Madoff (SFS ’13), Morgan McDaniel (SFS ’13), Amanda Lanzillo (SFS ’13) have some advice for you.
In a video titled “So you want to be a Foreign Service officer,” which seems to be inspired by a similar, academic-minded video, a student asks if she can list her professor as a State Department reference. The professor tells her “no one cares” about her Maps of the Modern World Knowledge, she will only marry other officers “as pretentious as [she is],” and she will “die as a mid-level Washington bureaucrat.”
So … happy Monday, you guys!
