This is a blog about getting your first job as a humanitarian aid worker. It is the distillation of hundreds of face-to-face, email and telephone conversations I have had with people about how to decide whether this is the right career for you and, if so, get your first job. It is the blog that I wish that I had access to when I was first looking for a job. If we’d had blogs back then, that is.
In the bad old days people printed things like this on dead trees, and you had to buy a copy before you could read it. Thankfully, this website is provided free of charge, but if you found it at least as useful as a book you might have bought, please consider buying something through one of the Amazon or Powell’s Books links, or by buying me an Amazon gift card.
You can reach me at nick (at) nickmacdonald (dot) net – I’d love your feedback and suggestions.
