UN Recruitment Part II: Demystifying UN Recruitment and the Life-Cycle of a UN Application

October 16, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

OPIA’s Wasserstein-Fellow-in-Residence, Priyanka Chirimar, will continue her talk from 18 September to provide an overview of the UN recruitment process as part of OPIA’s two-part series on applying for UN internships and jobs.  Part II will cover topics such as where to look for vacancies beyond INSPIRA; filling out a P11 or PHP; making the most of UN’s own online resources; preparing for an exam when shortlisted; preparing for a CBI model of interview. She will take students through a typical application, and how to plan and pace yourself when applying for a position under the Blue Flag. It will provide an overview of the internal HR developments that aim to streamline and improve (the many criticisms) of UN hiring practices. It will use examples of current vacancy announcements for entry level legal jobs to demonstrate how to identify organisations or even specific offices within individual interest areas and discuss how an applicant can test its suitability for themselves.

Non-pizza lunch will be provided. Please register below to let us know you are attending.
