Resources for Job Seekers

Employers Please visit the Guide for Using the Network

One of the goals of this network is to provide a centralized resource for anyone seeking employment in the field of international affairs, peacebuilding, development and related areas. This brief section provides an overview of basic site resources for careers.

PLEASE NOTE Members are not allowed to post their individual requests related to their job or funding searches on the site. Anyone posting such requests may be banned. There are many resources related to jobs and funding on the site, but if we allowed such individual requests the site would be deluged.

HOW TO USE THE NETWORK FOR JOB SEARCHING Many employers are now using the network to identify and recruit candidates for potential positions. To ensure that you might be considered for these opportunities, it is strongly recommended to have a brief bio in your profile that highlights you relevant skills and experience (3 to 4 paragraphs). In addition, members should fill out the other areas of their profile and indicate relevant sectoral areas, languages, geographic experience, etc.
