I want to be an aid worker

February 8, 2011 at 9:59 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

As someone who now recruits aid workers with Mission Talent, I have learned the hard way that no one is very interested in a degree.  If you want to be an aid worker you need field experience and language skills– the ability to manager millions of USAID money helps too.  It is not easy to find these people, and the pay is not great, but I am inspired every day when I do interview aid workers by their dedication.
