Hi. Anyone know if there's a hiring freeze at UNHCR? Maybe because of the coronavirus or travel restriction.

I applied for multiple positions (P2) earlier this year in February/March 2020. And in almost all of them the application status is "In Progress".

Previous year I would have heard something by now, or the status update would have changed to "job closed" or even "job cancelled." For international positions (P2 and above) it normally takes up to 6 months.

This year it seems UNHCR are keeping their jobs open for longer period than before.

Anyone else who has similar experience?
