Do you want to work for USAID in an overseas mission? Then check out this Career Development Session with CSIS: Building a Career Overseas with USAID. Afterwards, review USAID’s career page and USAJobs to see what excites you.
Personally, I think the coolest team within USAID is the Global Development Lab, but take a gander and find what calls to you.
Then you know what to do: informational interview your ass off.
