Ask Devex: Career transitions

An excerpt from the “Ask Devex” online event. Career Account members can watch the full recording below.

Special guest speaker Tunde Hegedus joined Devex’s Kate Warren for this month’s Ask Devex online event to help answer our members’ career questions. Hegedus is a business development specialist with Tetra Tech and supports recruitment for one of the organization’s international development services units.

Within many development organizations, recruitment actually falls under a business development function, explains Warren. Based in San Francisco, Hegedus recruits for project bids, as well as active international projects and United States based positions. She brought her insider perspective into what organizations look for when hiring.
