The US Department of State visited Temple on Wednesday to discuss career and internship opportunities and at the federal level and the means students can take to find such jobs.
Resident diplomat Clyde Bishop of the City College of New York headed the discussion, attended by about 30 Temple students and alumni at the Tuttleman Learning Center. The talk included what jobs and internships are available in Foreign Service and how to go about securing a position in the department.
“My presence here represents the fact that the state sees Temple as a valuable resource,” said Bishop.
Bishop went on to say that Secretary of State Colin Powell has established his desire to shape a State Department resonant of the US; “diversity [now] becomes one of our objectives,” he said.
