WFP - FIT POOL

Post by Rivera » 07 Aug 2018, 16:46

Hi All!

I hope this finds you very well, and actually, that this finds you patient and hopeful towards getting a job on the UN System.

I wanted to ask if there is someone there, who managed to pass the first part of the WFP FITPOOL Process, which was the screening.

The next step is a technical assessment. Does anyone have experience with it? If someone has already taken it, it will be very helpful if you can share the insights.

I have taken two assessments on UNHCR before, but they were about math and logic, and not really technical for the function.

Thanks!

Hi Rivera, how are you?

Did you receive, as I did, the mail from "Devex on behalf of WFP"?

If so, do you think it's reliable?

I received the invitation to the assessment on monday 13th, but I cannot find connections between WFP an Devex, and the ID number of the vacancy is not mentioned in the e-mail?

Am I too prudent? :)

Thanks,
Ruggero

Hi Ruggero!
Come stai?

Well, I did not have any doubts that it came from WFP. Based on my experience, when I had a similar test for UNHCR, they outsourced some part of the process, on an external provider. I think this is our case.

Did you receive the invitation for Finance or Administrative Vacancy? It would be nice to connect with you, so we can share some insights!

Let me know!

Ciao, sto bene!
It was Finance. I applied both for Finance and Administrative. They invited me for the Finance P2 test.

Yes it would be nice, my e mail is my nick...

Let's keep in touch!

I think being cautious is usually a great idea. However, indeed, it is true that some organisations outsource (part) of their recruitment process. In general, be careful who you sent personal information to and never(!) send any money!

Hi Dex, Ujj2018. I hope you are doing well.

In my case I took the test on the 3rd week of July, and I have heard from them ever since.

@Dex: would you mind telling us which Fitpool you applied for? If you have already done the motivational interview, it seems you are almost getting into the FitPool! Congrats! Can you tell us some insights or kind of questions you had on the interview?

Thanks
