More humanitarians are needed as the frequency and complexity of emergencies increase. Post-disaster development also requires experts in relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction. The random nature of such work means that many employees and consultants will be on short–term contracts.
Some people find it difficult to enter the humanitarian field; others will have to start searching for their next post almost as soon as they begin the current one. This book will help altruistic people enter humanitarian employment, and those who are already there to move on and upwards. To gain most from the ideas, you will need access to the Internet in order to explore and exploit the many web site addresses given.
