PICS Career Event. "Careers in International Organizations, Development, Nonprofits, and Journalism" with Laura Bullon-Cassis
Laura Bullon-Cassis' career in environmental and international affairs spans three continents and several fields, including nonprofits, research, journalism, and international organizations. In this session, she will share some lessons learned and best practices gathered through her own career and impart advice to students on how to navigate a career in international affairs/development -- be it in think tanks, journalism, or NGOs. She will share advice on how students can prepare themselves for an international career while in college, how to figure out what sort of job/organization would suit them in this broad field, and what skills and aptitudes are required. Laura will address how to get started with a career in international organizations, including the various paths to entry that are available to young people, and the challenges the field is facing in the current geopolitical context.
