U.S. Commercial Service
As a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce, the primary purpose of the U.S. Commercial Service is to help U.S. companies start exporting or increase sales to new export markets. The Commercial Service works to further President Obama's goal of doubling U.S. exports by the end of 2014 as part of the National Export Initiative, and has a global network of offices in more than 100 U.S. cities and in more than 75 countries around the world. The Commercial Service's team of education specialists helps connect U.S. education and training professionals with students, recruiters, and potential partners across the world by organizing informational webinars, recruitment fairs, virtual education events, and one-on-one meetings through the Gold Key Service. The Commercial Service education team also compiles newsletters and market research reports in order to inform clients on the latest international outreach opportunities.
