Don’t know where to start? Struggling to land your first job? Are the roles available to you uninspiring? Or are you employed in one of these fields and just can’t seem to move up?
That’s because employers are looking for candidates with very specific skillsets. We spoke to senior managers at organizations like the United Nations, World Bank, World Economic Forum and World Wide Fund. Over 80% said that the main thing lacking in prospective employees is on-the-ground experience of local contextual factors, such as cultural norms, affecting real-life and impact-aligned projects.
We also spoke to trusted professionals in the sector. They confirmed that career paths in “for good” sectors are confusing and the ladder to the top isn’t clearly defined.
So how do you navigate this field?
