UN application

Post by Kumar » 30 Jan 2019, 23:23

Hi,

I applied for specialised agency in UN for a p4 role . I cleared my first Skype call interview and was called to geneva for my direct written assessment and interview. After my written exam and interview I got email from HR stating that I was further shortlisted and Director will make a decision. My references were emailed the same day. It’s beens a month no reply from them do I have a chance to get a offer?

Thanks

Although everyone on this forum in one way or another dream to be served with a UN job offer. Unfortunately no one here have any crystal ball to predict a date. If you say what you say, you may get it 'sooner or later', either case all you need is to be patient.

Congrats! Interesting that you were called first for a skype interview before the written test. I had written the test on may 2019 which I have yet to hear from them, but if I pass then it will follow up with a competency interview. It was for a P4 role in Geneva. In the interim, i just did a test for a P3 level in Dubai 2 weeks ago.

Hello
I have a question that I am unable to find an answer to anywhere and I am hoping someone here can help me.
Last week I created a profile on inspira and the next day I was invited to apply for a position, which I did. The day after my status changed to under consideration. As of yesterday however the job posting is no longer listed and it is not on the cancelled or filled positions list. And my status still says under consideration.
Two questions:
1. How often is someone invited to apply for a job if they aren’t on the list from previous applications?
2. How do I find out the status of the posting itself?

I tried emailing the help desk but got an email back stating that they can’t give me information about my application...although that want my question.
Can someone please help?
