This is an incredibly helpful tool for employer research. Search by keyword/phrase, e.g., “health outcomes,” as well as sector, location, and organization type. From there, you can read about organization history and any contracts they’ve received. You’ll then be able to add interesting employers to your list and visit their websites.
In addition to informative articles about the job search process, the Devex Career Center features an “Insider Insights” section with recruiter observations, e.g., How to land a job with Tetra Tech. You’ll also find first-hand stories of what it’s like to work for organizations like the UN and the World Bank.
