Careers Beyond Academia Series

Elite international development organizations like the World Bank and the United Nations seek technical experts in science, engineering, and policy fields to help solve some of the world's most pressing problems. Deep experts who can lend insight into issues such as climate change, gender, governance, energy, and water and sanitation are in high demand by employers such as the Gates Foundation, the Brookings Institution, and Oxfam; and locally, by organizations like RTI and FHI 360.

If you would like to learn more about the different types of employers in international development and the kinds of skill profiles they are seeking, join Caroline Korda Poole for an interactive session that will help you make sense of this crowded field. From geographic considerations to in-demand skills, salaries, and other benefits, Caroline will help you understand the complex and competitive job market in international development and will help you focus on the organizations and roles that would be the best fit for you.

You will leave this workshop with a clear understanding of the different types of employers in international development and the specific talent they are seeking. You will be able to create a targeted list of potential employers that fit your skills, background, and interests, and will have an idea of how to best position yourself to find opportunities at the organizations that are right for you.
