- I am curious about the experiences of newly hired FSOs that are 55 plus years of age. What percentage of new hires are in this age group? Generally, how are these "older" junior officers viewed?
The Foreign Service is looking for employees who represent the depth and breath of the United States, and we expect new hires will bring unique skills and life experiences not shared by other candidates. Consequently we interview and hire candidates from across a range of ages and experiences. A newly minted officer might be in his or her 50s or maybe only in his or her 20s
