During a summer internship at a microfinance in Madagascar, I realised that international development work was what I wanted to do. I loved the idea of being able to work in a number of different locations for people who often can’t help themselves. But once I got home, I felt paralysed; I wasn’t sure where to begin. The whole world of working in international development was fairly new to me, and I didn’t know where to start looking for jobs in the field.
