THE FOREIGN SERVICE JOURNAL
A former Transatlantic Diplomatic
Exchange Fellow reflects on the
similarities and differences between the
Romanian and American diplomatic corps.
BY D I ANA TASE
LIFE AND WORK IN THE
M
y diplomatic adventure
began eight years ago when I
joined the Romanian Foreign
Service. I have served with
enthusiasm and passion
both within the Romanian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs in
Bucharest and overseas, in
Prague, Rome, Brussels and
Washington, D.C.
Being a diplomat is a career like no other. Where else can
you change your job, the focus and location of your work every
few years, without actually changing employers? Where else
are you constantly encouraged to broaden your expertise and
knowledge as well as develop your personal skills, both at
home and overseas? Diplomacy is much more than a job; it is
a unique way of life, and I love it.
