How do you start up as an international development consultant or transition from a full-time job into temporary assignments? How do you network and establish yourself as the go-to expert in your field? And how do you showcase your skills in your resume and during a job interview?

During our webinar “How to Succeed as an International Development Consultant,” these and many other frequently asked questions were answered by a team of experienced recruiters for one of the world’s leading international development implementing agencies.

Featured speakers include Daniel Head, senior international recruiter, economic growth for DAI in Washington, as well as two colleagues from DAI Europe, Recruitment Manager Katie Levy and Associate Recruiter Sophie Montmey, both based in London. Together, these HR officials bring experience recruiting for projects funded by some of the world’s top donors, including the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.K. Department for International Development, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and EuropeAid.
