63 Vacancies Open At United Nations, Nairobi

Applying for a job in the UN can be challenging, but extremely rewarding. With that in mind, we prepared five great tips for you to keep in mind during the application process:

Choose the right job for you

Apply only to those jobs that are suited to your strengths and aspirations and make sure to update your application to highlight important facts relevant to the job you are applying for.

Highlight your achievements

When describing past experiences, focus on what you’ve accomplished and achieved, as opposed to what you do on a daily basis.

Use your motivation statement to prove you are the best candidate for the position

Think of your motivation statement as an opportunity to distinguish yourself from other job seekers by highlighting what makes you the best match for the position. It should be brief, three to four paragraphs, and as targeted as possible to the position for which you are applying.

Research, prepare and train for your interview

If you are called for an interview, train for competency-based interviewing techniques by preparing a wide range of brief real-life stories about your accomplishments. The structure of your answer should be: Situation, Action, Result.

Apply for as many as you can

But be targeted! The UN’s selection process is very competitive, so you should not be discouraged to apply for other jobs for which you feel you are qualified in case you are declined for a position. And remember, customize your application according to each position you apply for.
