Aspiring for a career in development. What to do next?


Recommended Posts


For somebody who already has a postgraduate degree (MSc Policy Analysis in Health- Netherlands; and visiting scholar Mphil Epidemiology-Univ. of Cambridge, UK),1 year of work experience in development, and would like to see herself working in development (health) I wondered what the best thing to do is at this stage? Would be another master an appropriate choice? If that is the case, what other options exist other than the MPA-ID program offered by Harvard University?


About me:

I currently work in a trust fund, within a development organization, and I coordinate the health impact evaluation portfolio. Nonetheless, I soon realized my quantitative skills are not recognized and I am missing out the field work experience. My background is in public health and, as mentioned by some of the community members, I found the job market very poorly defined and overall biased towards professionals with an MD degree. I have recently fallen in love with development (I think I always been) and I would like to think that soon I will be able to make a contribution to this field.

Thanks in advance.
