Working World

Careers in International Education, Exchange, and Development

by Sherry L. Muller and Mark Overmann ’02 (Georgetown University Press)


A career guide designed for those interested in international affairs. It includes resources of selected organzations, websites and further reading; profiles of 12 professionals who also offer practical advice about building a career in international affairs; and a lively dialogue between the authors, who have different levels of experience.

The authors also offer a Working World blog where they discuss such issues as “Is the Peace Corps the new CIA?”; I want to volunteer abroad … but I’m broke"; “Idealists as social entrepreneurs”; and “Expand your notion of the new international.”
