Your Perspective: working for NGOs

Your Perspective NGO

Do you see yourself making a career out of making the world a little bit better? What’s it really like to work for an NGO? Come to our event Your Perspective: working for NGOs to find out!

After the events on working in journalism and doing a PhD, Your Perspective now switches focus to working for NGOs. We will explore the image of (working for) NGOs and the reality with a panel of UU Humanities alumni who now work for different NGOs. Where can your Humanities studies take you? What are positive and negative sides to working for NGOs? Come to the event and find out.
