U.S. Department of State Consular Fellows Program - Spanish

We invite you, friends and colleagues to learn more about how you can use your proficiency in Spanish as part of a unique national service program working in U.S. embassies and consulates abroad.

The Consular Fellows Program is a limited non-career appointment of up to five years which directly supports the U.S. Department of State’s mission to provide overseas consular services which encompasses adjudicating visa applications of foreign citizens seeking to come to the United States to visit, study, or work, and assist U.S. citizens traveling or living abroad. They are on the front lines of preventing fraud, combatting trafficking in persons, and protecting U.S. border security.

Working together with dedicated professionals, this public service opportunity provides valuable professional experience and you will develop and apply a wide range of skills, from managing resources to conducting public outreach. New hires will be eligible to receive a bonus of up to 10% of their salary with a four-year service commitment, as well as the Student Loan Repayment Program.

We are looking for motivated, culturally aware, adaptable problem-solvers who have sound judgment and strong customer service skills and can retain their composure during stressful circumstances.

Employment & Internships

K-12 Spanish Teaching Jobs | Southern Teachers Agency

We are trying to help K-12 schools find talented Spanish teachers!

Southern Teachers helps private & independent schools around the South find the best teachers possible.  While the skills learned in a teacher-training program are valuable, this category of schools also values the linguistic abilities and content knowledge developed by Spanish majors. 

It’s a simple point that I’d like to make:  your graduating students can get jobs as Spanish teachers at very good college-preparatory schools—even if they haven’t gone through an education program.

Southern Teachers currently has over 100 Spanish teaching jobs available for the 2016-17 school year.

If you know students who have the potential to make a difference in the lives of young people, please consider forwarding this message.  This document contains more information about the opportunities available to your students and how Southern Teachers functions.  Interested candidates should apply via our website.
