One of the most common questions asked by those interested in a career in international development is where to start. Although seemingly a simple question, we’ve found it goes constantly unanswered, resulting in hordes of skilled people unable to get their foot in the door of international development.
For the creators of this website, we found that the best advice we’ve received on how to get into development was only provided to us once we’d managed to make that first step. Consequently, this website’s aim is to try and take as much of the mystery out of the undeniably frustrating process of getting that first role. Although we don’t claim we hold all the answers, with our powers combined we might just be able to help you on your journey.
