In the past days and weeks I was getting some comments via my comment page and e-mail that triggered me to reiterate what I have said before: The UN Job List is an independent privately owned internet page that is not affiliated with the UN.
What does this mean? It means that it is pointless to write to me about any particular job. I simply don’t have any jobs. I link to UN jobs and that is all. So don’t expect any answer from me if you ask me about a particular job. But please leave a comment or write to me if you have a cool new idea for the UN Job List. I might not be able to immediately get back to you but I will keep it in mind. And it is great to hear from you.
Now if the page is not affiliated with the UN, why do I host the page? Well, it all started as a private challenge to see how the technology behind a page such as the UN Job List would work. And I know the issues around finding a job in the UN first hand. That’s why I decided to start this project. More than a million hits later I think it was not too bad an idea. And now the good feedback I get keeps me going on this project. So if you found a job via my page, drop me a comment – thanks
Lastly I would like to briefly dismiss the suggestion that I could make money with this page. To be short and clear: There is not financial interest in any way behind the UN Job List. I don’t have ads here, I don’t have a donate button and I don’t get a single penny from anybody for doing this page. There is no cost for any of the users of this page and there is no cost for any of the organizations listed on this page. This is all for free. I see this page as my private fun project and I want to keep it that way.
