International Organization Careers is brought to you by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs (IO). IO is the U.S. government’s primary interlocutor with the United Nations and a host of other international agencies and organizations. As such, the Bureau is charged with advancing the President’s vision of robust multilateral engagement as a crucial tool in advancing U.S. national interests. U.S. multilateral engagement spans the full range of important global issues, including peace and security, nuclear nonproliferation, human rights, economic development, climate change, global health, and much more.
As the largest financial contributor to the United Nations and most other international organizations, and because these organizations execute multilateral development and assistance programs important to U.S. policy, the U.S. government has a vested interest in the composition of their staffs. International Organization Careers exists to help these organizations recruit highly-qualified candidates for professional posts, to assist Americans interested in such employment opportunities, and to promote American representation in these organizations.
