First and most crucial, you have to know exactly what you want, that is, what drives you, what’s your passion? This will greatly narrow down your search for that perfect NGO job. It is also important to know whether you would want to work locally or internationally and even more specifically, in what part of the world, Africa? Asia?

All NGO’s engage in some kind of humanitarian work which involve great mobility and job rotation, because of this, they prefer to hire individuals with certain qualities, for instance, someone who is multilingual, adaptable to different conditions, can persevere hardships, someone with understanding for different cultures and mostly, someone committed to the course of that specific NGO. Therefore, when writing your resume, you may want to put in some proof that you actually possess these qualities.

It is of great importance to note that most NGO’s operate on a tight financial rope and hence have no luxury of hiring a large number of employees at a time. In fact, most NGO’s usually have a big chunk of their work carried out by volunteers especially when it comes to subordinate jobs e.g. a clerk or a typist. Volunteering, however, is usually a great place to start for any person who wants to work in a specific NGO. This is because once you are inside it is much simpler to showcase your qualities and qualifications and also get information about other job opportunities within the organisation.

Armed with this crucial information, the following are sites where you can easily start your NGO job hunt, all the best.
