It’s a bit daunting to try something completely new, but I think this is going to be a wonderful experience and that’s kind of the whole point to this career refocus/shift/change/etc. I’ll be a temporary Correspondent, part the United Nations Press Corps. If any correspondents or journalists out there have any advice, please share!
I don’t have much development experience per se, but what I’ve done certainly relates to development in many ways from cross-border trade regulations, supply chains affecting climate change, and emerging markets.
I’ll still continue my consulting and other writing projects during the program as well so it will be a busy summer, but I hope you will continue to check in here to see some good posts and articles!
I’ll also update this post as I go along with people to follow on Twitter and blogs to read for more information on the UN and development issues in general.
