Devex Executive Vice President Kate Warren returns to answer your career questions and help you land a job in the global development sector. This month’s Ask Devex looks at how to start working with the United Nations, among other common career challenges.
The U.N. is a diverse organization with many different individual agencies, explains Warren. Each has their own way of hiring, working, and evaluating. It is important to acknowledge this and look at the individual agencies, she advises, to hone in on the agencies that best align with your experience and networks.
