In your experience do they do reference checks for the internships? Based on what I heard they don't, they just do it for positions of at least one year, that's why I exaggerated a bit in the description of tasks I did. But now that I receive 2 interview offers I'm starting to get extremely worried.

Always be truthful in your applications. If they check references depends. I always do - but references is not to verify every last detail of your CV but more to check what kind of person you are and if you fit the UN values. Good luck!

Hi everyone,
I am currently invited for an interview for an internship position at UNFCCC. They suggested that after my interview, I would be required to do a written test. I would like to ask if everyone here had experiences of making the test and what kinds of written test format the UN often have for their internships? Thank you in advance for your answers.

Thao
