Welcome to the Career transitions course.  Close to retirement, on an abolished post,  due for rotation, or leaving your job for other reasons?  This online course will review how to manage your career transition, and provide an opportunity to hear from a number of UNICEF staff who have transitioned in and out of the organization.  Then, it will provide tips on how to get focused, and then guide you through preparing a resume/CV for the external job market. It will then move onto networking and strategically using your professional relationships to help you transition.  Finally, it will help you structure a job search and engage in some planning for next steps.
