Description: From the “field” to the front office, from campaigning to capacity building, from policy to public health – there are a myriad of jobs in the international development sector. This event will examine the practical elements of careers in development, from the types of roles and work that are available in the sector, to the range of organizations and focus areas, to critical skills and competencies required for success. Join a panel of international development practitioners from several NGOs to hear about their career trajectories, their current work and their diversity of experiences in the sector. Directly following the panel will be a social event with the opportunity to network with the panellists and other attendees. Drinks and light appetizers will be provided.
