This morning the UN Job List passed 1 million hits. For me that is quite remarkable especially since it is only a few months since the UN Job List passed the 500.000 hits mark and less than a year ago since the UN Job List was at only 100.000 hits.
I’m obviously happy about these number and I have to admit that when I launched the page I did not expect it to become so big in such a short time. But I will take this growth as encouragement to enhance the UN Job List even further.
For example these days I’m working on a HR Interface that will allow HR colleagues to upload vacancies directly to the UN Job List so that the UN Job List becomes an even more complete resource in the hunt for UN jobs.
Also, at this time I would like to thank you all the many good comments and great suggestions that I have been receiving. Even if I can’t implement all of your wonderful ideas immediately, please keep them coming! I read all of it with a lot of interest and whenever I get a chance I’m adding to the page.
The perceived scandal around the UNDP North Korea programme is over and the agency has been cleared of all of the allegations that were raised. If you don’t know the story, the Atlantic has a nice summary.
I think it is really good that this one is over and done with now. However I wish the organization would have been allowed to spend the resources that the gathering of the evidence to prove its innocence required on its actual tasks, for example on achieving the MDGs.
