Job Search

MSc. graduate looking for employment opportunities

A French citizen authorized to work in the United States, I recently moved to New York and am looking for work in the international development, non-profit or public sector. I am most interested in program-type positions, but I am also open to other opportunities. You might know of job openings or simply have some advice - please contact me at

After completing a masterʼs in international political economy at the LSE in 2003 (MSc. Politics of the World Economy), I became the editor and senior writer of the Australia-based Asia-Pacific Development Review, a business publication targeting international development professionals. This position gave me the opportunity to fully develop my research, analytical and writing skills. Being responsible for the editorial side of this publication, I gained experience in working with a team in a high-pressure environment. Moreover, I interacted daily with donors, NGOs, and consultants, and acquired strong communications skills.

I then had the opportunity to conduct fieldwork in India, when I joined the Seghal Foundation to manage the production of a training manual on income enhancement, covering agriculture, microfinance and microenterprise. This project not only furthered my knowledge of international development in a local context, but it also validated my ability to collaborate with a multicultural team.

Throughout my studies and my working life, I had various volunteer experiences at non-profits, both in developed and developing countries. These experiences helped me develop solid organizational skills. For example, I coordinated the recruitment and placement of over 100 volunteers for an Oxfam Australia fundraising.

I am now looking to apply my skills to the context of a New-York based organization. If you know of job opportunities or would be willing to share tips, please contact me at or on 917 412 5103. I would be happy to email you my resume or meet for a coffee.

Best regards,

Emmanuelle Collet

MSc. Politics of the World Economy, 2003
