Does reference check can be considered as a selection in UNDP

Post by naturead » 06 Jun 2019, 04:35

Dear Friends,

Last week, I have interviewed for the position of P3 in UNDP. After 2 hr of interview they ask for my academic credentials. Immediately after an hour they go for reference check. Its 4th days I am waiting for there email.
Can I expect offer letter soon or something else can also happen?

Thanks

Checking reference does guarantee anything in UN. It is part of their recruitment process. unless you get the offer letter don't even think think that you have been selected in UN.

Sorry to hear that! May I ask what was the timeline of your selection procedure? how long it took to get invited for an interview after the written test?

Thanks
