The careers-corporate division aims to maximise career opportunities for students passionate about the International Development and International Affairs sector. We break new grounds through reaching out to a diverse array of external organisations and exploring new event formats besides the traditional talks and panels.
We wish to continue providing students with opportunities to hear from and interact with high-profile speakers and experienced professionals, while expanding into new terrains like embassies, media firms, think tanks and political risk consultancies.
Partnership with BAFUNCS
The British Association of Former United Nations Civil Servants (BAFUNCS) established partnership with the society last year. A series of intimate discussion sessions were held, with students interacting with former UN civil servants in an informal setting. Each session has a unique theme and focuses on one unique aspect of the UN’s various functions and agencies.
While continuing with the current concept and format, we aim to develop the ongoing project with BAFUNCS into a more structured series with higher frequency. We aim to facilitate sustained communication between the BAFUNCS members and the participants, and ultimately, offer insights into different routes into the UN.
