KM on a dollar a day

Musing on knowledge management, aid and development with limited resources

I’m often asked where you can find out about knowledge management job and consulting opportunities in the UN. Unfortunately these opportunities are not very frequent, and are often not well publicized.

One of the best sources of information for information on UN job opportunities is UN joblist an independent site aggregating job feeds from the UN set up by Sebastian Rottmair. It’s a great site for all kinds of UN jobs, but there is also a “knowledge management” feed (or feed to any search term you like).

Beyond the UN system, David Gurteen maintains a list of KM job opportunities, although these are mostly from the private sector.

Another place where job and consulting opportunities in KM within the development sector is the Knowledge Management for Development mailing list. This is not a jobs board but rather an online community for people workin on Km and development, but opportunities are frequently posted there –they can be found on the KM4Dev jobs centre or are posted in the d-group e-mail exchange.

I also try to tweet out interesting opportunities I hear of from time to time (and might also plug your vacancy if you ask nicely)

Do you know of any other useful resources – if so, let me know and I’ll add them here.

Bonus – some tips on applying for a job at the United Nations.
