Job Reposted?!

Post by sookie » 19 Oct 2018, 07:49

Hi all,

I applied for a UN position back in late August 2018. Up to today, my application status in Inspira still reads as "under consideration."

However, I've just found out the the exact same job advert has been reposted on UN job sites. What does this mean exactly? Should I go ahead and reapply, even though I'm still under consideration? Or does it mean I shouldn't bother - that my previous application was/is weak?

I have cancellations and then right after that same position is open for applications.
I would apply to this new one too. My opinion is that it is hard to guess exact meaning what is happening there.

Usually, if they re-advertise a position, they put like a "warning/notice" that previous applicants shouldn't re-apply. But, if this is not the case with this position, then go ahead and re-apply. Good luck!

Thanks. No such warning was posted.
