Session Date: April 23, 2021
Session Description: The Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) project provides a unique opportunity for individuals to gain skills and experience in global health through fellowship placements at USAID Washington and USAID Missions around the world, Ministries of Health, and other institutions in a variety of settings. STAR fellowships are paid positions with a focus on building the capacity of individuals and organizations. The application process at STAR is very competitive with its own norms and expectations, so standard job application advice may not apply. To stand-out from the pack of applicants, you need a winning application strategy. In this session, STAR’s recruitment experts will share practical advice on how to put together a stand-out CV and cover letter, prepare for interviews, and develop an understanding of the salary and benefits to land a job of your dreams within STAR. Whether you are a student just graduating and looking to enter the global health sector or a global health professional on the hunt for your next assignment or perhaps you are trying to transition to global health from another sector, this session is right for you.
