Career Advice

Do you have questions about your career in international cooperation (IC)? Where is it heading, what are your chances in applying for certain positions, how should you handle your current professional situation and what should your next steps be? Career advice allows you to explore your questions so that you can better assess your situation and position yourself accordingly. We provide information, and advise and support you throughout the process.


Career advice can cover all aspects of a career, including:

  • reflecting on your professional situation, now and in the future;
  • rethinking the parameters of your IC career;
  • clarifying your profile, competencies and preferences;
  • working towards decisions and goals for your career development;
  • planning how to get into IC or crossing over into another sector;
  • Information about job requirements, employers and application, among others.

We help you clarify your situation, discuss with you your questions and ideas on opportunities in and the requirements of the IC labour market. Together, we review your motivation, elaborate on your potential and analyse possible future paths, as well as concrete steps.

Depending on your situation, a single session may suffice. However, a process involving a number of sessions often leads to a lasting impact on your career development. Intensive career advice, including an assessment of competencies, requires six hours.
