Sebastian Rottmair created a website dedicated to making it easy for good people to find their spot in the UN system by listing all UN vacancies in one convenient place: http://unjoblist.org/. There are helpful information there for the ones interested in being part of the United Nations. Three of five topics are already developed and published:
1) Learn what the UN system is about (part 1) 2) Learn how contracts work in the UN system (part 2) 3) Finding that job you need to apply to (part 3) 4) FAQ on job hunting strategies (coming soon) 5) How to apply and what to expect in the process (coming soon)
