An e-mail from a colleague:
On Thursday, October 7th, James Benson, a Marquette alumnus and former Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. State Department, will present and take questions on foreign service and working for the federal government. Now retired, Mr. Benson’s final assignment with the State Department was in Havana, Cuba.
Mr. Benson will talk for a short time about his experiences and then take questions. He also welcomes the chance to talk with students individually at the end of the event. The talk is from 2:00-3:30 in Cudahy Hall, room 137. Refreshements will be provided.
If this looks like a splendid opportunity for any student seriously considering a career in the foreign service, that’s because it is.
