Whether you are graduating in the spring or sometime next year, it’s important to think of ways to build skills and gain hands-on experience that demonstrate what you can contribute to a project or organization. Getting job-ready means investing time in researching target employers and sectors within global development, testing the market to see what opportunities are out there, and making sure your assets, such as your CV and your online profiles, are recruiter-ready.

Devex Executive Vice President Kate Warren talks through the top things to do now, while you are still in school, to ensure you are in the best position to launch your job search upon graduation.
