How to get a job at the UN: master class of UN career expert at RUDN University
“UN, like any other large international organization, has a branched and multi-level management structure. Study the system and find out in advance where you want to work. Once you’ve made a choice, the first step towards building a career is to go for an offline or online internship. Information can be found on the official UN web-site — for example, UN CAREERS. Job offers on job aggregator sites may be outdated or not verified at all. The UN does not ask for any payment to consider an application, so if you come across such a situation, know that they are scammers,” Aisylu Yanturina Darles.
“I was fascinated by the story of collaboration between fashion houses and African tribes. Well-known industry players, together with African residents, made authentic jewelry for one of the collections. This is a vivid example of participation in an international project. For me, as a future manager, it was important to learn about the features of organizing the process, establishing logistics connections, and the specifics of communication,” Nadezhda Slivko, student of the Faculty of Economics (“Management”, IV year).
“It was interesting to learn about the modern opportunities the UN provides for young professionals to start their careers. Thanks to Aisylu’s experience, I now know about the stages of employment and how to best present myself in a resume in order to get a job in a dream company,” Yasmina Mamadrizakhonova, student of the Faculty of Economics (“Management”, IV year).
