Developing Religion Landscapes for Making American Foreign Policy Providing descriptive analyses of religious activity in foreign countries to help Department officials make foreign policy decisions. Department of State 2 STATE-USA-S-101 Analytical writing, Research Project Description The Office of Religion and Global Affairs provides analysis of religion’s role in foreign affairs and strives to educate American foreign policy actors on the importance of engaging international religious actors and communities in making foreign policy. VSFS interns will work directly with policy advisors to research and write cogent analyses of the religious environment in a specific country(s). Analyses may take on a broader scope to look at cross-national issues as well as narrow in on issues in the corner of an individual country. The goal is to develop up-to-date resources for use by regional policy advisors as well as Department staff working in those regions. United States Interns will be working with several policy advisors to address their needs in preparing assessments of the religious landscapes of countries of need, even looking at very narrow issues involving religious communities (i.e. elections and the Catholic Church in Nicaragua). Other assignments in this broad topic may arise. For more about RGA, please go to this site: https://www.state.gov/s/rga/ 2018-06-08 10:07:17 1

Do you doodle during boring classes? The public affairs office in the State Department's Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation may be the perfect place for you! We are looking for a social media-savvy college student who wants to channel his/her social media obsession and artistic doodlings, and interest in foreign policy and national security.

And we need someone to scour social media platforms to find out what people are saying about our issues. We also need a creative soul to find catchy ways to illustrate some cool issues (think missiles and nukes) and other issues that maybe aren't quite as scintillating (think UN resolutions and treaties). If you've got experience in international security or nonproliferation, that's a major bonus.

Department of State 3 STATE-AUT-11 Analytical writing, Data analysis, Data visualization, Design thinking, Software development This database keeps track of sick leave days taken by LE Staff which is important since the pay level during sick leave is determined by local labor law so its regulations are programmed into the database. We enter each day an employee is on sick leave into the database. The database is programmed to know how many fully paid/half paid sick leave days a person has available in a certain time frame, depending on the number of years of employment, and tells me at what point the salary should be reduced to half pay or to zero pay. Also, the database automatically adds new employees into the correct section or moves employees who left employment into the ‘former employees’ column. This project will require a basic to intermediate level of Microsoft Access and Microsoft Server proficiency. In essence, each voucher will have a large amount of information associated with it, but the information will be managed through the separate queries that are generated by the user.

Russian Far East Social Media Influencers - Cultural Research and Mapping Project Conduct online research and data analysis to identify potential partners in advertising Consulate events in social media platforms, and identify influential people who can become useful contacts of the Consulate. Department of State 2 OffCycle-22- Russian Cultural diplomacy, Data analysis, Data visualization, Research, Social media management The goal of this project is to expand the Consulate's followers and contact reach on social media and outside the virtual space through analysis of current followers and identification of new contacts to cultivate. The U.S. Consulate in Vladivostok operates in a challenging social media environment, where the reach of Facebook and Twitter is significantly reduced by the presence of the local Facebook competitor VKontakte, and popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram. Additionally, the Consulate's Facebook page primarily reaches a Vladivostok audience, and secondarily Khabarovsk, leaving 40-130 followers in each of the major cities in the region (Yakutsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Nakhodka, and Ussuriisk; and zero followers in cities such as Magadan, Anadyr, Artem, and Birobidzhan. In practice, this means that advertising on social media - even when paid for - reaches a very small percentage of the target audience, and the Consulate is constantly struggling to promote attendance at public events such as concerts, film showings, and speaking events; and to promote knowledge of exchange program opportunities. This project could include two interns, whose duties would be divided in the following manner: Intern 1: Facebook Audience Analysis and Contact Development a. Analyze accounts of those who have liked our Consulate's posts for the past 6-12 months, developing an Excel spreadsheet with key bio data - name, current city, work, education, other websites if mentioned (ex. Instagram) b. Search upcoming events on Facebook in Vladivostok and other regions to identify pages and people the Consulate should consider partnering with for events and event promotion Intern 2: Instagram, Twitter, and VKontakte Contact Development a. Seek out the accounts of influential people and representatives of key target audiences in the Russian Far East (particularly: journalists, bloggers, cultural centers, university professors and staff, university students, private (English) school teachers/directors, and clubs or other venues that organize musical performances, speakers, film showings, and other cultural events), and follow them from the Consulate's Instagram and Twitter pages b. Make a list of particularly influential Instagram and VKontakte accounts of people and organizations in the above list, organized geographically. c. Search online announcement forums to identify other cultural event organizers and make lists of their contact information, social media accounts, and types of events they organize. Vladivostok's site Vl.ru is a good starting point, and searching for upcoming events in Vladivostok and other cities through Facebook is also useful. d. As time permits, conduct analysis of Consulate followers on VKontakte and identify ways to improve penetration there. VLADIVOSTOK Russia Depending on the work load, the project could be expanded to more interns. A template for data input has already been started, and will be shared with the intern once identified. 2018-11-06 02:56:33 1 PAS
