Project Description

Your primary task will be to sort through news alerts each day and aggregate them into our online news portal.
Each morning by 9:00 a.m. EST, we send highlights of the top foreign affairs,
public diplomacy, and international education news to thousands of colleagues throughout the State Department, both in the United States and overseas, as well as to our partners. It’s a great way to stay up-to-date on current topics in public diplomacy, both in the press and on social media. It only takes a few hours a day, and can be compiled the evening before, so the schedule is super flexible. If you are interested, you can also take on additional duties, like helping us write exchange participant highlights for the website, contribute to the State Department blog, create press lists, and edit media releases. Join a team that has been creating people-to-people relations for more than 75 years!
