If you want to work overseas in a developing country, the U.S. Agency for International Development may be looking for you. The agency says it wants candidates for its International Development Intern (IDI) program, which trains future foreign service officers to staff its foreign economic and humanitarian assistance programs in more than 70 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern and Central Europe, the Middle East, Latin American and the Caribbean.
The IDI program is two-tiered, with tracks depending on academic and work backgrounds. Intern salaries range from $18,986 to $48,161 a year.

The hospitality industry, with a critical labor shortage, is targeting potential employees who may have a harder time in other fields: Beginners, older workers, students and young mothers.
Richard D. Nelson, president of the American Hotel & Motel Association, says that part-time and flex-time jobs are available in most communities and should appeal to recent graduates, students and mothers of school-age children. High school and college graduates just starting out can look to promising careers in the field, which he says will be the nation's No. 1 employer by the end of the decade.
Two booklets about the careers in the field are available. Write to "Careers" at the AHMA, 1201 New York Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., for "Check into Hotels and Motels." The Educational Institute, an association foundation, also offers a brochure, "Hotel-Motel Careers." Write to the institute, P.O. Box 1240, East Lansing, Mich. 48826.
