Please tell us what you did during your internship.
For six months, from February to August 2019, I did an internship with the Decent Work Team (DWT) at the ILO Bangkok office. The ILO is a specialized agency of the United Nations, providing countries with a wide range of technical assistance related to labour issues and labour markets. The primary objective of the ILO DWT Bangkok is to provide technical support to Governments, Employers and Workers organizations in an effort to promote decent work.
I mainly contributed to the team by assisting in the deployment of standardized measurement metrics and tools, impact evaluations of programmes implemented in 2018, as well as the development of entrepreneurship and management training tools and materials to strengthen youth empowerment and employment readiness among vulnerable, marginalized and at-risk groups.
My primary motivation for being an intern at the ILO is to make the world a better place. My life goal is to help those who do not have access to education and training resources to develop their management-related soft skills. ILO’s global reach and commitment to decent work progress and inclusion have benefitted me in many ways, from gaining the skills and outlook necessary to pursue my career goals and personal commitments. I have learned to use the most advanced tools, strategies, knowledge, and skills for training and developing people in a wide range of contexts. Additionally, I was able to bring my academic research experience and knowledge into the area of monitoring and evaluation to support team projects, and I have also gained insights into academic research based on project needs. Last but not least, I have met many like-minded and inspiring people who genuinely care about global issues. My time in the UN has defined me as a global citizen that requires me not only to develop strong self-awareness but to also take responsibility to make our society and our planet a more equal and sustainable place.
I am with the UN flag.
