I was not a full-time worker at the Embassy. Our organization was funded bu the Embassy to implement a one year project on inclusive education in a district of the province of Maputo. I was the coordinator of the project, reporting directly to the Embassy.
Favorable reporting schedule
Limited funds for small national civil society organizations
Most of the time the work pace is normal. About 4 months of the year the work pressure is real like any other business just prior to end of Financial Year. Each employee reports directly to his or her Direct US Hire Supervisor.
Working for the Department of State is the best experience of my life. I learn a lot working there in a Diplomatic environment communicating with several diplomats including Ambassadors. The best job ever.
