Best Career Advice

Whatever you want to do professionally, I’ve found that all of the best opportunities have come along in part through people I know and people who’ve been helpful to me. You still need to look for job announcements online and read for those openings and prepare your resume. But then, you’ve got to tap into your network and find out who knows whom at the organization that you’re applying to, who can give you advice, who can put your resume in front of the hiring manager.”

Career Challenge

“I was leaving behind a safe, secure prestigious government job where I was on a steady career path of promotion, where I could move up within the government. And really, for me, taking a big risk of leaving all that behind to learn about a new field, still within the scope of international development but one that I didn’t know where it would lead me to… My fellowship ended one week after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt and the start of the financial crisis in the U.S. in the fall of 2008 and money dried up, especially in the social sector, nobody was hiring.”
