I never really knew what the Foreign Service (part of the Department of State) fully entailed, but after learning so much this morning about the Consulate General and his career, I was interested and inspired.
Some of the Consulate General's duties are the support U.S. citizens in Germany, act as an ambassador of the United States, and promote relations with Germany. Hubler has had many experiences around the globe in his 20+ years working for the Department of State.
After asking so many questions, he encouraged me to check into opportunities with the Foreign Services!
His advice to us: If you are passionate about something, and think you can work hard enough to do it well, then go for it!
