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, but just can’t seem to move up.
That’s because employers are looking for candidates with a very specific skillset. We spoke to senior managers at organizations like the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum and the World Wide Fund. Over 80% said that the main thing lacking in prospective employees is the on-the-ground experience of local contextual factors, such as cultural norms, affecting real-life, impact-aligned projects.
