October 1 is a magical date in international development. It is the start of the new federal fiscal year, which means USAID-funded programs often get a big boost of funds and teams go on hiring sprees.
Expect the list of jobs below to expand all through October, then taper off till January 1.
Are You Ready?
Have you been preparing for this upcoming job search bonanza by making sure you know and are known by all the thought leaders in your subject area?
- Are you informational interviewing your ass off?
- Have you taken a TechChange course to build up your skills?
- Or gone to ICT4Drinks for after-hours networking?
The job hiring competition is winner-take-all. Only one person will be hired for each position – second place is first of the losers. So don’t wait. Focus on your networking efforts now so that hiring teams will be thinking of you before they even write the job description, much less publicize it below.
