MINN's Lunch & Learn series continues with the opportunity to hear from experienced consultants and ask them your questions.

About this event

If there is one thing that COVID-19 has made possible, it is work from home as a new normal. Many recent graduates and international development professionals are now exploring how to get into the flexible and distance work culture. The consulting industry, however, has always had that advantage. In this Lunch & Learn event, we would like to explore the advantages and challenges of international development consulting and how to get into this profession.
