U.S. Department of State, various international locations
Sarah P’s comments: If you are a US citizen and interested in getting a foot in the door with the Foreign Service, here is a potential opportunity. The Foreign Service does employ librarians as Information Resource Officers but requires international experience in order to obtain a position. (For more information see Chapter 6: US Government Library Opportunities)

The Department of State is developing a rank-order Register to fill a limited number of Foreign Service Diplomatic Courier vacancies. The specific number to be hired will depend on the needs of the Foreign Service in any given year and is subject to change.
