Any job search can be daunting — especially in a field marked by increasing competition and the emergence of public, private and nonprofit actors from Seoul to Brasilia to Johannesburg.

To win an international development assignment, you’ll need the right skills, experiences and connections. You don’t just need to know where the jobs are, but also how to get them.

And that means: You need answers to questions that generally don’t appear on the World Bank’s career site, or the U.S. Agency for International Development’s FAQ page. You need to hear from the expert.

That’s why Devex is planning a series of webinars with seasoned recruiters and industry experts ready to answer your burning questions on everything from microfinance to aid worker security and returning home from the field.

If you haven’t participated in a Devex webinar yet, check out the following recordings online:

And as you think about your own career goals, let us know what challenges you have faced in your professional development — and we’ll try our best to find answers and help you do good, and do it well.

That’s right: As we are planning our continuing webinar series, we’re looking for your input. So please suggest a webinar topic now by leaving a comment below the article.
