Conrad Rinto, MA in Slavic and East European Studies Class of 2017
Where do you work and what is your current position?
Currently, I am serving as the Bilateral Affairs Officer at the US Embassy in Budapest. In this position, I help develop and coordinate joint training events between the Ohio National Guard and Hungarian Defense Forces.
How has your CSEES MA helped you throughout your post-graduate life?
One aspect of the CSEES MA that has helped me in my post-graduate life is taking the research skills that were developed for CSEES and applying them to my profession.
If you are a traveler, what is one of your favorite trips you have taken?
Perhaps one of my favorite trips I have taken was to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The spring before traveling to Sarajevo, I was fortunate to have enrolled in Slavic 4250H, The City of Sarajevo. It was wonderful visiting a place that I had recently learned so much about. I am uncertain if anyone has ever been as excited to visit the Holiday Inn Sarajevo as I was.
