A Chat with a Diplomat: Careers in the State Department

Philip Beekman, U.S. Department of State diplomat in residence for New England, visited Johnson & Wales to speak to a group of engaged students about careers in the State Department and life as an Ambassador.

About one-third of the group of students consisted of Political Science majors, with others representing areas of Criminal Justice, Food & Beverage Entrepreneurship, Tourism & Hospitality Management, Fashion Merchandising & Retailing, and Business Studies. This broad representation of majors echoed the theme of the day: there is a career for everyone and every interest in the State Department.
