Looking for interesting and challenging employment opportunities to contribute to the needs of people worldwide? Well, your search just got easier! The State Department's Bureau of International Organization Affairs has launched a revamped website to publicize professional employment opportunities open to U.S. citizens at the United Nations and other international organizations.

The Department of State encourages qualified U.S citizens to apply for these positions. As the largest financial contributor to most of these organizations, the United States has a major interest in the composition and quality of their staff and their ability to carry out programs effectively and efficiently.

The new website features:

• Information about numerous current open job vacancies at international organizations.

• A new user-friendly and effective job search tool.

• Job Alerts -- sign up to receive email alerts, based on your employment interests, as new jobs are posted to the website.

• Other helpful tools and resources, including information about salaries and benefits.

I am grateful that some international organizations have opened their doors to help with the burden of our nations problems. We need our government to help fix the issues with how unemployment is spinning out of control.
