We had had enough.

  • Enough of struggling to pull together the disparate job listing websites
  • Enough of wondering why job hunting was so unsuccessful
  • Enough of feeling all alone in the big international development world
  • Enough of a lack of simple introductory material to international development

We love to get feedback, so we encourage you to leave comments. Particularly valuable is leaving your story in the Motivation section of the website. If you struggled for months to get your first break, you will know how demoralising it was.
