    Hello there,

    I'm looking for advice on how to find employment in Vietnam.

    More specifically, I'm a Canadian looking into the possibility of working for a local Vietnamese NGO or a development agency for a year or two in order to gain more practical experience in my field and to work on a community level.

    To give a bit of background on my situation: I currently hold a BA in International Development, an MA in Human Geography and an MA in Public Policy and Administration. By the time I'm ready to job searches I'll have some policy-related work under my belt, as well as some experience working for Canadian based NGOs. I've also had travel experience in SE Asia, as well as experience with fieldwork in East Africa. My partner, a photographer without a university degree, would also consider teaching English or doing something related to his profession, if opportunities are available for him. I'm not sure if any teaching options are open to those without a university degree, but he does have a college degree and quite a bit of work experience in the field of photography.

    Timeline: I'm hoping to do this in about a year or two and am looking for advice on how to prepare. Does anyone have any experience or luck finding this kind of employment in Vietnam? Work search tips?

    Thanks! I look forward to hearing back :) This forum has always been extremely helpful in the past!
