Attention Americans in Bosnia and Herzegovina!
If you are interested in becoming a diplomat, please consider taking the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT). The U.S. Embassy will offer the test on Thursday, October 10, in Sarajevo.
In order to be eligible to take the FSOT, applicants must be:
U.S. citizens on the date they submit their registration package
At least 20 years old and no older than 59 years of age on the day you submit your registration
At least 21 years old and not yet 60 on the day you are appointed as a Foreign Service Officer (FSO)
Available for worldwide assignments, including Washington, D.C.
Even though you are not required to know a foreign language to become a Foreign Service Officer (FSO), proficiency in one or more languages will enhance your competitiveness for selection.
If you are a capable, healthy, and dedicated candidate who is prepared to undertake the challenges facing our country and the world, taking the FSOT is the first step towards becoming an FSO.
The FSOT will be offered in Sarajevo on Thursday, October 10, 2013, from 9:00 am to 12:00 am. Monday, September 23, 2013 is the last date for candidates intending to test overseas to submit completed on line registration forms and Friday, September 27, 2013 ( 9:00 A.M. Central Time) is the deadline for candidates to schedule test seats at overseas sites (such as Embassy Sarajevo). Make sure to register early so that you get a seat! The Sarajevo testing site typically fills up quickly. To find out more and register to take the FSOT, please visit Careers.State.gov website.
