Applying to international development jobs and feeling blocked out? I’ve been there!
We’ve helped dozens get interviews and offers at top organizations around the world -- ones they only dreamt of working before.
International development is among the most competitive sectors in the world.
Every year, the UN opens up just 2,200 internships. The World Bank accepts only 1.3% of job applicants. Large and small NGOs alike struggle to afford existing staff positions much less new ones.
What makes it so challenging?
A complex web of organizations. Nontransparent hiring rules. Job-seekers failing to learn from application wins AND losses. Well-meaning but misinformed advice. The result is top talent too often exit to other careers. That's a shame because successfully applying to impact jobs is a skill that can be learned - one that's essential throughout your whole career.
We help changemakers get development job offers even if they’ve only sent out application after application to just get back automated response messages.
I would really like to thank you for giving me the morale for continuing the job search as now I know I have a powerful tool I can use. You have restored my hope in a way I wish you could comprehend and I can’t thank you enough.
I signed up for the program because I was at a point that I was questioning my skills. It helped me take a deeper look into how to market myself and my skills and how to respond better to TORs.
