The Foreign Service Assignment Notebook


The Foreign Service Assignment Notebook (FSAN) is the updated and expanded "go to" reference for the foreign affairs community. Do you need to know about logistics, caring for family members, resilience, or what technology you can use overseas? The FSAN has this and many other topics that are recurring themes for international assignments. No matter if you are going on your first tour or your fifth, this updated resource is a valuable addition to your planning and assignment 'toolkit'.

The current edition is available as a digital resource in PDF, ePUB (for iOS and Android), and MOBI (for Amazon Kindle) formats. The digital format makes it possible to highlight key references, add personalized notes on your mobile device and easily reference them during your move. This edition has been updated and organized with your needs in mind. Based on collaborative, inter-office input, the FSAN includes new chapters on topics such as resilience, safety and security, bidding resources, and more.

If you are transitioning to your next overseas post, the FSAN provides tips, references and advice to make your relocation and adaptation a bit easier. Download your preferred format at http://go.usa.gov/ctaK3.
