Once you get your first position, getting the next job becomes much easier! Not only do you have some experience under your belt, you have also made contacts both in your organization and other organizations in the field. You will also find moving positions in smaller organizations is very common, and can lead to rapid advancement and promotions.

One thing I have noticed with NGOs over the years is how desperately short-staffed and overworked a lot of them are. In other words, there are lots of NGOs that are desperate for manpower, but haven’t had the time or been organized enough to recruit. If that’s not motivating, I don’t know what is…

As I was job hunting I stumbled upon your website…and sooo thankful for it.

Since Jan. I had quit my job as a medical social worker to transition into international development work. I recently have been in Haiti the past 7 months volunteer.

Everything on your website is on point. I just want to thank you for creating this site for people like me.

Keep up the good work.
