Hi! so I had my interview a month ago, but they told me they'd contact me within 15 days. Keep in mind that there was Easter week in between, so it has been roughly three weeks since I interviewed. I just sent a follow up email to see what's happening.

This is for a GS position vacancy. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be faster or slower for GS?

Thanks!
Hey Iena,

Have you heard from them yet?
Hi BenjaminLincoln!

I did heard from the HR person. She said she would contact me soon to update me on the process. So I'm still waiting. But she did get back to me very quickly.

Wow, that was quite fast.
I remember you saying you'd have on interview on the week of June 3rd and then on the 6th you'd already be confirmed the offer.
Impressive!
Good luck to you and enjoy the journey!

Hi all! this is exactly what I came here to ask.

I have tested, interviewed and been rostered with the Secretariat years ago at P3 but for a role I don't want to do anymore (Admin Officer).

Now I am not only taking a test for OCHA this weekend (1st assessment), in another job family. I heard back after something like 14.5 months from the application and 6 months from my second assessment, that I have been selected for an interview.

There are 6 positions (it's a P2 job). Even if I passed, what is the realistic chance I hear back from them in 2019? :D

Thx all!

Hi everyone! I m still new to this group and have tremendously liked this forum. I think it all depends on the urgency of the position under consideration and the availability of the selection committee. Personally i applied for two P positions of different departments last year 2018 around october. Was invited for written test this year in match for both positions. Sadly i was informed in july 2019 that i was unsuccessful in one of the position while the status for the other one is still showing 'under consideration'. I do hope the second one turns out positive. But all in its an anxious moment while waiting for a feedback

It's time consuming. Here's a time line so far, for a D1 position:
Closing -> first email (invitation to written exercise): 395 days
first email - submission of exercise: 13 days
Submission of exercise --> Second email (invitation to interview): 59 days
Second email - interview: 11 days
Interview --> present: 61 days.

Total so far: 539 days!

I did a Skype competency based interview with the Hiring manager for a WFP P3 and I heard back the next day when they contacted me to ask for references (that was yesterday) and today I got an email from the hiring manager thanking me for the references. I have no idea when I'll find out if I am chosen or not but I'm crossing my fingers. They told me 2-3 weeks in the interview with regards to making their decision but I was pleasantly surprised at how fast they got back to me and the wording sounded quite positive.
