Hi, I would like to become an aid worker in the short future. I know that it is hard to get your first job as one. But, I have a bachelor’s in civil engineering and have done humanitarian missions while in the Navy for about four years. Do you think this counts as experience or while help me get a job?
Thanks for the question – a bachelor’s in engineering might be helpful, but without several years of practice it’s not going to count for much. The Navy experience will, again, certainly be useful, but you will need to get experience living and working in the kinds of environments you want to work in to be taken seriously by recruiters.
Networking with people who have the kinds of jobs you want will certainly help here – good luck!
