Hello, I see many UN jobs I'd like to apply to and some of them have starting dates days after the job posting close date. I think it's safe to say the UN hiring process takes an average of months to a year, so how can the job poster expect to go through applicants, interview/hire someone, and start the work in a matter of days? Are they really looking for a candidate or do they already have one in mind and are posting the job as a formality? I'd like to apply to a job that starts within days of the job posting close date, but wonder if it's worth my time and effort. Thanks!
