Our forum is stuffed with questions from readers keen to know how to break into the ever-competitive international development sector.
Readers such as Ecologydev, who wants to develop his skills through volunteering but isn’t sure where to look to gain the relevant experience he needs. Then there’s ChrissyHaneef, who wants to build up her CV as she is worried a master’s degree is not enough to land a first job in the field.
It’s certainly not the first time we’ve received questions of this sort and these are just the kind of issues which will be discussed in the next 2Way Development careers event. Careers regulars will know we follow the conferences, which aim to help people break into international development, with a series of Q&As featuring speakers at the events.
We’ll be assembling a panel of these international development experts to offer you one-to-one advice live on Thursday 28 July. So, whether you want to know more about how to gain overseas experience, which job is right for you and how you can build the skills you’ll need, join our experts and ask these questions and more between 1pm and 4pm or post in advance now.
