BYU students can learn of Foreign Service careers in April 2 lectures

Amy J. Hyatt, diplomat in residence at Arizona State University, will present “An Insider’s View of the Foreign Service” to Brigham Young University students Thursday, April 2, in B106 Joseph F. Smith Building.

She will discuss “Life in the Foreign Service” from 3 to 4 p.m., and she will give pointers on “Preparing for the Foreign Service Oral Exam” from 5 to 7 p.m.

Hyatt is a career Foreign Service officer with more than 23 years of experience working for the U.S. Department of State, serving in Washington, D.C., six embassies overseas and now at Arizona State University.

Her previous assignments include deputy chief of mission and chargé at the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki, Finland. She has also served in Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, Norway and the Czech Republic.

Prior to entering the Foreign Service, she was a litigation attorney in San Francisco, having received a bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Binghamton, a juris doctorate degree from Stanford and a master’s degree in social science from the National War College at the National Defense University.

These lectures will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu, or contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652.
