International Careers Guide: Options in the Field


The Jackson School is a member of the APSIA network of schools around the world who are dedicated to the improvement of professional education in international affairs and the advancement thereby of international understanding, prosperity, peace, and security. The Career Services offices at APSIA member schools collaborated to produce the International Careers Guide with the intent that it serve as a resource in our students' career searches.

This guide highlights 29 possible career paths for our graduates, with each entry including the following information: descriptions of the field, career paths, salary information, demand, minimum qualifications, sample employers, future challenges, publications, and resources.

This International Careers Guide is available to current Jackson School undergraduate majors, current graduate students, and program alumni. Please contact the JSIS Career Services Office to receive a PDF copy of the Career Guide.
