Greetings from the UNA-Canada IDDIP team!
Below are some examples of the types of placements our JPCs have previously accepted. We will be adding and removing positions from this list, so please check back regularly. We recommend that prospective applicants do not focus so much on the geographical location, but rather the area of work they would like to gain further professional experience in (ex. health, communications, gender or climate change).
Although many of the positions state that a graduate degree is required, candidates holding, or enrolled in, undergraduate degrees are still encouraged to apply — there is some leeway. Also, no matter what is stated, all positions are expected to be six months.
Please also note that some countries require applicants to be currently enrolled at a recognized university. Currently, this includes Switzerland and Indonesia.
