ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need to train the staff of the U.S. Foreign Service (FS) in order to fulfill its mission in the 21st century. A study has revealed that the expanded State Department training must be farther by preparing employees for their next assignment to providing courses to prepare FS officers for a career in the government. According to Ambassador Ronald E. Neumann, there is a need for the personnel system to take a stronger position to ensure proper training.
