● The U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service Assessment is a competitive, oral and written examination used to recruit and select new, tenure-track Foreign Service Officers.
● Candidates who pass an initial online application screening process receive an invitation for the one-day oral assessment.
● Top candidates who pass the oral assessment exam are placed on a list called the Rank Order Register, which is valid for two years. The agency uses this Register to extend conditional offers of employment to candidates, as vacancies become available, pending the Top Security Clearance.
● A detailed assessment information package is available at bit.ly/FCSAssessment2019
