Are you an established professional in your field? Do you screen yourself out of working in the UN/NGOs etc.? If you are not sure if you have what it takes, or if you are in a profession that seems far away from what you see on International Organizations' sites - how can you find out more? Impactpool's Career Coach Anna Cope shares her experience and gives you insights on transitioning your career into these organizations.

The webinar will focus on how the International Organizations cover so many more professions than many think, and how someone who wants to ‘do good’ can find a niche there. You will have seen the usual roles in the job adverts: Accountants, HR, Finance, Communication, etc. but did you know that all sorts of experts/specialists and professions are needed too?

In particular emergency work needs many experts from a wide arena: pilots, logistics, security, policing, nursing, lab technicians, mechanical engineering, auto mechanics, etc…


Target audience 

This webinar is for people with an established career, who have a strong desire to ‘do good’, by applying their current skills and professions to the needs of the UN and International Organizations.

Approximate duration:

1 hour, including time for questions.
