About the webinar

While degree courses can help you gain specific technical knowledge and skills, it can be a lot trickier to learn, and then to illustrate, the soft skills which will allow you to succeed in your global development career.

As part of Skills for Tomorrow, Devex invites you to learn more about how you can learn the soft skills needed to stand out to employers and excel in your global development career. During this webinar, experts representing Duke University and the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs will share their insights on how global development professionals can go about developing these important skill sets.

By joining us for this Devex careers webinar, you will learn:

  • The importance of soft skills to your career growth 
  • How to learn soft skills and continue to develop them
  • What employers look for and how to demonstrate your competencies


The panel will also take audience questions. We invite you to share them during the event or in advance by submitting to webinars@devex.com.

And both of these, if one would tell the truth, were foreordained unto the holy place, where greatest Peter’s follower hath his seat. While on this quest, for which thou giv’st him praise, he heard the things which of his victory the causes were, and of the Papal Robe. The Chosen Vessel went there afterward, to bring thence confirmation in the faith, through which one enters on salvation’s path. But why should I go there, or who concedes it? I ’m not Aeneas, nor yet Paul am I; me worthy of this, nor I nor others deem. If, therefore, I consent to come, I fear lest foolish be my coming; thou art wise, and canst much better judge than I can talk.”
