Ask Devex: How can a diversified professional 'hack' a recruiting process focused on specific skills?

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

Kate Warren, executive vice president at Devex, returns to answer all your career questions in this month’s Ask Devex. The event kicks off with an overview of our 2018 Hiring Trends report based on a survey with 100 global development recruiters in 22 countries. The report offers insights to help job seekers know where to expect the most hiring and what recruiters are looking for in candidates, says Warren.

Warren also tackles a wide range of common job seeker challenges, including how best to explain or utilize an employment gap, how to create a general CV that applies to different positions, and how to transition to a career in global health.
