    Hello Quartet 4 Development! I really enjoyed this group chat for a number of reasons:

    – The discussion was pedagogical and well-organized.
    – The length of the video was suitable for the forum.
    – The dialogue was clear and to the point.
    – The discussion did not come off as too scripted nor did I experience any hickups in the video which made it very enjoyable for me as a viewer.

    Your different experiences and skillsets really contributed nicely to the overall purpose of the video – to provide career advice for newcomers in the field. This video certainly speaks to a lot of young people and provides a lot of valuable takeaways.

    My only remark would be that perhaps the title of the video is a little misleading as I perceive the advice to be quite targeted towards people seeking employment in the UN/major NGOs rather than social enterprises/CSR departments/consultancies/research etc.

    My personal input to the discussion – I believe an open mindset and an entrepreneurial approach to be highly important, not only for aid workers but for the industry as a whole.

    Well done!
