Course Title Lecture on International Development I (International Career Development)
Major Common Subjects
Program
Instructor(s) Kitajima (Vis.)
Purpose & Description

「国連機関で働く」という目標は「オリンピックに出たい」というようなもので漠然としており、実際にはどの競技(機関)でどの位の(業務)能力があるかが測られる。この授業においてはそのまま非常に高い目標である国連機関の理論を学ぶだけではなく個々の学生の経歴・経験を振り返り、その「棚卸し」をしながら講義参加者の身の丈に合ったキャリアプランを作り、今後国連機関・あるいはそのほかの仕事の場所において職業人になる準備となるような学びの場にして行きたい。集中講義期間内に各自の国連履歴書/英文CVを作成し、模擬面接も実施する。授業では主に配布資料を使用する。

 

People saying that I am aiming to work in the UN is like saying I want to take part in the Olympics. The reason is that the Olympics has many games, and so in a similar way, the UN has many agencies and organizations. And so it can be vague as to what exactly you want to work as. In the Olympics, you need to decide which sport you take part in and your ability in that sport. In a similar way, in the UN, you need to decide which agency or organization to join and know your ability to work in that chosen agency

In this lecture the student will not only learn theory about the UN agency but also look back on individual students’ history and experiences. As we do this those attending the lecture will be able to create their own precise career path which is preparation for those who want to work in either the UN agency or another workplace. In these intensive lectures, students will prepare their own UN personal history form (P-11) / CV and practice interviewing. In the lectures, handouts will mainly be used.
