Reflection Day

Valuable insights into the opportunities of working in development cooperation, humanitarian aid and peace promotion.

Are you interested in a career in international cooperation but don’t know how and where to start? And is this sector really for you? The Reflection Day is aimed at professionals from other sectors ("career changers"), graduates and students. During this one-day workshop, you will get an overview of the Swiss labour market, the range of employers as well as job requirements and career opportunities. You will reflect on your motivation and better assess your options.
