Good morning, jane27.

This is great. I want to thank you for your initiative. My main problem is receiving feedback about what did wrong during the UN recruitment processes.

After ten years of applying, then obtaining a job in a mission that closed after a year, then a year of failure in applications, I am about to give up.

Please send me the link and keep me included. I am very interested in your tips and insights.

And thank you very much, Jane.

Hi, everyone! I’d like to share with you my success story to inspire you to never give up on your dream.

For many years, I’ve been getting a lot of questions from friends, acquaintances and even strangers on how to apply for a job in the UN and what’s my route in getting my dream job.

▪ I started my career in the UN at the age of 24. For 11 years now, I’ve worked in 4 countries and 3 continents.
▪ It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that’s far beyond my wildest dreams and imagination. I can say my life and perspective on life and of the world have never been the same.
▪ I was able to achieve my career and financial goals, got to travel frequently around the world (40 countries and counting), and gained colleagues and friends from all over the globe.
▪ Most of all, it’s the kind of job I love doing while serving a purpose bigger than myself - to make a difference and serve the needs of the world in promoting peace.

But before this, I got a number of rejections in my job applications and I didn’t know exactly why.

It was a long, tedious and painful process and a rollercoaster of emotions, to say the least!

From zero feedback, then getting shortlisted, anxiously refreshing my inbox just to see any glimmer of hope, then a “black hole”.

I almost gave up on my dream job. Almost…

And when I got to work for the UN, I observed a lot of competent job applicants who unfortunately did not make the cut.

It’s not just because of the highly competitive recruitment process.

It’s mostly because of mistakes that could’ve been avoided or corrected in the first place.

That’s why now I want to encourage professionals here, who are highly motivated, passionate and committed, to never give up on your career goals.

I also want to tell you that the path to the UN may be long and difficult but not impossible. That’s based on my personal experience and awareness in recruitment.

So I thought about sharing my knowledge in a training (no cost) to a small group of 10 to 20 people.

I’ll be providing key principles, practical tips and lessons based on real-life examples to help you get your foot in the door and lead you to your dream career.

Are you any one of these?
▪ You’ve been applying for so many job vacancies in the UN and you felt like no one wants to take you.
▪ You’ve already lodged tens, hundreds of applications, but the biggest problem is to even get a single feedback.
▪ Or perhaps you’ve started to feel you’re not competent enough that you should give up the idea of applying for a UN job.

I felt the same way you did. You’re not alone.

I would love to help you out!

Please let me know here.

Wishing you all the best in your applications!

Hi! Thanks for sharing and I can totally understand the frustration even while you're in the UN or you've been in the UN. It seems like it's all the more challenging and getting 'unsuccessful' regret letters 'numb' me somehow.
Kindly check the link sent to you. Thanks again.
