Careers in international relief and development are becoming increasingly competitive. Now more than ever it's important for students to be aware of the range of opportunities in the field; the specific education, skills, languages, and experience they will need; and get practical advice on how to get a foot in the door.
The first annual Global Development Day: A Roadmap to Your Career on Tuesday, April 2, 1-5:30 p.m. in the Connelly Center addressed these concerns. An opening panel of experts were followed by 35-minute rotating breakout sessions from 2-5:30 p.m. The breakout sessions included representatives from NGOs, USAID, advocacy organizations, and venture philanthropy.
The day provided an overview of the changing nature of the field of international development and the range of options available to students in business, engineering, health, and the liberal arts and sciences.
In the Resource Area, students accessed the range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities offered by Villanova. Representatives from graduate programs in international development and NGOs were on hand to meet about further study, internships, overseas volunteer opportunities, and employment.
