I’ve taken on a new job at the Asian Development Bank, in fact for four months already, in case you’re wondering. I know I’ve been remiss in blogging but I’ve been quite active on Twitter and Instagram!
I am a consultant for the Social Development Thematic Group, which is an internal community of practice or network of ADB staff who work on social development, both as a sector and ensuring it is considered in the design of other development projects and programs. I mainly do communications, knowledge management, and research work, which is a great opportunity to learn a new sector. I basically get paid to organize and attend events and trainings on broad topics such as social pensions, elderly care services, and inclusive development. I also get to do quite a bit of writing through the newsletter.
If you’re interested in ADB opportunities, I encourage you to check out their jobs site. If you want to learn more about the organization, feel free to ask and hit the comments section.
