On Tuesday, May 15, 2012, I will be in Boston providing an instructional program titled "Landing a Job in International Development". The program is being sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association that is offering several multi-city program (also being offered in New York City during April) addressing how careers in international development offer excitement and the chance to work toward the greater good.
Joining me in this instruction program, will be two other well-known guest speakers: Patrick Shields, Executive Director & CFO, Global Recruitment Specialists and Cynthia Gabriel Walsh, Senior Field Organizer, Amnesty International USA.
In this course, we will explore:
• How much can you expect to earn
• What organizations are hiring today
• Who is being hired and what skills do they have
• What training programs or internships can give you an edge
• Who should you be networking with and where
• Tips for polishing your resume, cover letter, and application
• What to expect once you're in
Enrolled participants will also receive the FPA U Landing a Job in International Development Tool Book, free enrollment in the Foreign Policy Association Global Jobs email alerts, a free half-year digital subscription to Foreign Affairs magazine, and light food and drink during the program. Interested parties may register for the program at:
The program takes place at The Boston NonProfit Center from 5:30 until 8 pm. I hope that if you are in the Boston area that you will enroll in this program and gain valuable insights into best ways to improve your chance to get the positions you seek to have in International Development. I would be very glad to meet you.
