2021 IN-DEMAND CAREERS IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
CLICK SCHOOL LOGO TO READ ABOUT
ALTHOUGH COVID-19 closed classrooms around the world, graduate programs have rallied to offer tailored degrees, networking, and internships that prepare students for fulfilling jobs. Meanwhile, the demand for international affairs careers remains robust.
Schools moved job fairs online and worked with students over video calls. They also leveraged alumni who have global jobs to help students form professional networks.
For recruiting and hiring, employers hosted Facebook Live sessions and conducted events via YouTube live broadcast sessions.
Students have been entrepreneurial, taking advantage of virtual networking. Also, an unforeseen benefit of the pandemic is that students can accept positions around the world without moving.
This FP Guide demonstrates the continued relevance of international affairs graduate degrees, and it also details in-demand degrees and skills, including:
- Technology-related degrees: cybersecurity and internet policy
- Other specializations: human security (people affected by climate change, human trafficking, and conflict), global entrepreneurship, data science, and sustainable tourism
- Sought-after skills: the ability to write about complex issues in a concise and yet engaging manner and the ability to visualize and interpret data
