Your work placements can be in a variety of fields, while the types of organizations you will work with are mainly NGOs and governmental offices. You can request the field to work in, unless you are on a program where the field is specific (eg. Netcorps), and we will do our utmost to fulfil your request. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the what field you will work in because, as always, our priority is the community.
