Project Summary:

The Mali Justice Project (MJP) is a major USAID initiative to enhance efficiency in the justice sector and increase access to justice and to support the Government of Mali to reduce corruption along the trade corridors. Management Systems International (MSI) leads one of the three components of the project focused on reducing corruption in trade corridors. The component seeks to reduce the level of corruption along the Sikasso-Koury and Sikasso-Heremakono trade corridors and increase trade, develop a reporting system for roadside corruption, and increase education initiatives and public awareness of corruption activities along the trade corridor.

Position Summary:

MJP is planning a study tour to Rwanda for representatives of the government, civil society and the private sector to learn Rwanda’s experience and best practices in trade corridor management, promotion of public integrity, and anti-corruption efforts. Rwanda is internationally acknowledged for sound governance and widely seen as successful in implementing sound anti-corruption reforms.

Transparency International-Rwanda (TI-Rwanda) will be assisting MJP in organizing the study tour. MJP seeks a qualified individual to provide short-term technical assistance and leadership to the study tour working in close coordination with MJP staff and Transparency International-Rwanda. The total level of effort for this assignment will be 13 days.

  • Liaise with TI-Rwanda to ensure that appointments/meetings for the study tour participants are arranged in advance and pertinent to the objectives of the study tour.
  • Assist in organizing a technical orientation session for participants upon their arrival in Rwanda. The orientation will provide an overview of Rwanda’s evolution as an anti-corruption champion in Africa and will familiarize participants with the constellation of agencies and actors that they will be meeting with during their stay in Rwanda.
  • Accompany the study tour participants to all appointments and meetings during their stay in Rwanda.
  • Provide a summary report/compte rendu to MJP leadership at the conclusion of the study tour.

Questions Typiques
“Why are you leaving your current job?” Hiring managers want to know your motivation for wanting to leave your current job. Are you an opportunist just looking for more money or are you looking for a job that you hope will turn into a career? If you’re leaving because you don’t like your boss, don’t talk negatively about your boss–just say you have different work philosophies, Teach says. If the work was boring to you, just mention that you’re looking for a more challenging position. “Discuss the positives that came out of your most recent job and focus on why you think this new position is ideal for you and why you’ll be a great fit for their company.” If you’ve already left your previous job (or you were fired), Sutton Fell suggests the following: If you got fired: Do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were unfortunately let go, that you understand their reasoning and you’ve recognized areas that you need to improve in, and then tell them how you will be a better employee because of it. If you got laid off: Again, do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were let go, and that you understand the circumstances behind their decision; that you are committed to your future and not dwelling on the past; and that you are ready to apply everything that you learned in your last role to a new company. If you quit: Do not go into details about your unhappiness or dissatisfaction. Instead, tell them that while you valued the experience and education that you received, you felt that the time had come to seek out a new opportunity, to expand your skills and knowledge, and to find a company with which you could grow.
