Thanks for the question. I have a Biosytems Engineering Degree and a Masters in Hydroinformatics but what UNICEF really value is my PhD.
A PhD shows that you can do a major project, and do it by yourself if necessary. It shows that you are good at thinking about the bigger picture without getting overwhelmed…so I think that really helped me get this job.
I didn’t know much about PhDs before I did one, so do let me know if you want to know more.
