I worked at World Health Organization full-time (More than 3 years)
Good team environment, engaging and fast paced environment, ability to contribute to development agenda via management of noncommunicable diseases work plan.
Poor stability and long term commitment to staff. Due to changing commitments from donors, it may sometimes be difficult to plan long term for your contract.
Advice to Management
I applied through other source. I interviewed at World Health Organization.
I emailed the person I wanted to work with directly. After speaking with them on the phone to describe my experience, they scheduled a second interview with me. During this interview, I created a presentation on the topic I wanted to work on and presented it to the the higher-ups in the department. From there they decided who I would be best to work with, and then I spoke with them to define the internship and the deliverables.
