UNICEF: Does "Vacancy Expired" mean the position has been filled, or does it only refer to the application period?

Hi all,

Quick question — If a vacancy is listed as "expired" in the UNICEF system, does that simply mean they are no longer taking applications, or that the application process has ended and they have selected a candidate? My current application status for a posting that stopped taking applications on Dec 5 is "Application Acknowledgement." I applied in November.

Thank you for any input or help!

Expired logically mean cancelled/ended (in terms of VA - what is ended the closing date or the Vacancy is cancelled - it's hard to say without knowing exact days of status updates). If the closing date was set December 5 and now the VA is expired (as you mentioned) first thing you make sure when the VA status been updated ? (not the application status)....

In UNICEF that should mean that they don't take any applications any longer. The moment it says "Recruitment outcome" or similar the candidate has been selected...
