Rich's International Job-Hunting Resources
I'm occasionally asked how I lucked into my international career. Rather than try to remember the various places where I've seen jobs posted, I figured I'd do a page on this site...which would also help me keep all of the job resources straight. Note that I last updated this list in 2005.
- Mercy Corps - Click on "Jobs" in the navigation bar at the top. Of course I'm going to list my own former employer first...Mercy Corps is a great organization to work for!
- Jobs4Development.com - Courtesy of Neil: "We specialise in international development jobs and consulting opportunities." A free, well-designed jobs portal. Thanks, Neil!
- Intjobs.org - Courtesy of Temuri: "It is the newly-opened, regularly-updated, ads-free, non-commercial website that lists and categorizes vacancies in a different UN agencies and International Organizations." Thanks, Temuri!
- the Permanent Mission of Italy to International Organizations in Geneva - Courtesy of Tanja: "there is a website of the Permanent Mission of Italy to International Organizations in Geneva,
which contains almost all links to vacancies in International Organizations - worldwide." Thanks, Tanja!
- conflicttransformation.org - This jobs list evolved from the former CEEJOBS and NISJOBS lists on Yahoo Groups. It's now a paid service, something like $25 per year. I paid to join it because I found my last two jobs through CEEJOBS, and this seemed like a good way to say thanks! Here's the official description of the site: "The Alliance for Conflict Transformation Announcement Forums are
one of the premier sites for receiving/posting information on career and educational opportunities in the fields of conflict transformation, peacebuilding, development and civil society worldwide."
- United Nations jobs - Jobs in the United Nations system, Part I.
- United Nations system jobs - Jobs in the United Nations system, Part II.

- ReliefWeb - Another great source of positions in relief work. There's a weekly mailing list here.
- DevNetJobs.org - Another source of positions in development work. There's a weekly mailing list here: "For FREE SUBSCRIPTION to the DevNetJobs.org weekly jobs Digest: Send a
