Welcome back to another school year from all of us at the Undercurrent! We hope you had a wonderful summer filled with sunshine, exploring, pleasure reading, farmer’s markets and of course, relaxing. While you may not be overly excited about getting back into the school grind already, here at the Undercurrent we’re very excited for this school year. Over the summer, two of our Associate Editors stepped into new roles as the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor for the upcoming year. We created an Advisory Committee and hired new Associate Editors, a Blogger and an Outreach Coordinator. However, we still have room on our team for associate editors, a communications associate, a graphic designer and translators! Learn more about these positions HERE.
International development graduates occupy a purgatory in the development field: thoroughly trained to identify ethical problems, they can have a hard time producing imperfect solutions; thinkers on a systemic, global scale, they are best suited for the executive level but have little of the corresponding experience or skills to get there; possessing a broad social science education, they are ill-qualified to work in any particular sector.
