Global Employment Initiative (GEI) - Employer Information


Since 2002, the Global Employment Initiative (GEI) has helped Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and a wide range of other local and international organizations fill hundreds of job vacancies. The U.S. State Department’s Family Liaison Office (FLO) established GEI to help prospective employers tap into the talent pool of Foreign Service family members overseas.

Our candidates are highly educated and multi-lingual. They have extensive experience in a variety of fields and are ready to work in the countries where you do business. Our Global Employment Advisors (GEAs) can help you recruit the best mobile talent at no cost to you.
