Later today I am going to attend a lecture by a former Taiwanese representative to the United States, among other places. (Due to Taiwan’s political status, their “representative” in the US is equivalent to an ambassador.) The topic is foreign service. I’d like to get an idea about what my local classmates think about the possibility of serving their country overseas. I’ve asked a few of them in the past about what their plans are after they graduate. The kinds of responses I have heard include government work, NGOs, or continuing on to study for a PhD. (We are masters degree students right now.). If there is anything interesting to report, I will write more about it later.
