This webinar aims to provide NESI and ISPAH members and early career researchers with an overview on career pathways at the World Health Organization and the United Nations. Our guest speakers are current employees of the organizations and both will have very interesting perspectives on the choices they made a long their academic training to attain a research position with these two international organizations. Speakers will describe their current duties (daily, weekly, monthly tasks), the benefits and challenges of pursuing their career, the expectations and evaluation of their performance, and among other things how to be competitive for these types of careers (e.g. choices to make during academic training). Individuals who cannot attend the webinar and would like to ask a question to our speakers, are welcome to communicate their question by the 19th of November to Patrick @ patrick.abi.nader@umoncton.ca)
