The Road to the Horizon

The Road to the Horizon

For some time I have been following the posts of WFP Peter on his blog ‘The Road to the Horizon‘.  He’s got some great stuff and I strongly encourage you to take a look.  One page that I only recently read, strangely enough, is the About page.  (I am not sure how I missed this as it is usually the first thing I head for.)  In any event, Peter’s About page has a great summary of what I think drives most of us to aid work.  Not only was he not getting what he needed back in Belgium he also had a deep-seated need to help people.  That, in my opinion, is the prime motivating force for most dedicated aid workers.

Peter’s also got a great page on finding work in our field.  Check out his ‘Rumble: So you want to be an Aidworker, hey?‘  It starts with a great WFP promo video.  Thanks, Peter!

I just came across this NGO job site.  I know nothing about it but it has a truckload of positions listed.  If you are in the market for a new gig be sure to take a look.  Let me know if you land a job so that I can link to it from my jobs page.

ReliefWeb has pulled through with a killer new application for finding humanitarian jobs.  Gone are the days of scrolling through their job listings.  Now you can just click on their map and the postings pop-up as balloons.  There is also a Google Earth KML file for those of you that want to download the latest vacancies.

What do you want to see more of at Aid Worker Daily?

Folks, help me out here.  It is time to let me know what you want.  Believe me, I can blather on incessantly until the cows come home but I want to make sure I am giving y’all what you want.  I appreciate the fact that you have enjoyed what I have had to say so far but my gut tells me that there are a number of you who could give less of a hoot about gadgets, etc.  Jobs seem to be inching up the charts so I’ll be throwing more down on that subject.  In the mean time please toss a word into a comment box so that I can plot a course.  Don’t be shy, speak up!

p.s. – You can also drop me a line at aidworkerdaily@gmail.com!
