Introducing Spotlight jobs

I have been introducing “Spotlight jobs” over the past days. These jobs are highlighted on the main UN Job List homepage in a special section and also appear in bold when you browse for listing.

The point of these Spotlight jobs is to give UN organisations a chance to highlight vacancies where internal talent is missing, where special expertise, skills and other hard-to-find job characteristics are at play.

If you see a spotlight job – please have a close look: Are you the right candidate? Please consider to apply! Also, if you know anybody in your network who would be the perfect candidate, please forward the job! Thanks very much!

If you work for a UN organisation and would like to get access to the portal to highlight some of your vacancies as Spotlight jobs, please leave a comment below. I will get back to you via email. Spotlight jobs regularly achieve about 20% to 50% higher applications than regular jobs.

Did you know? This is how you sign-up for email alerts

Going into the weekend, I want to post this as a reminder for all of you:

Most of you know that the most effective way to know about new jobs is to be subscribed to the UN Job List email alert. Here is how you sign-up:

To sign-up follow these steps:
1) Ensure that you understand what exactly you are looking for (research jobs, organisations, duty stations)
2) Use the UN Job List to familiarize yourself with the site and how it works
3) Use the Advanced Search of the UN Job List to search for vacancies that fit your profile (http://unjoblist.org/lists/advancedsearch)
4) Make sure that the search returns the vacancies you want to see
5) If you are sure that the search works for you, then sign-up by entering your e-mail on the results page.

Did you know? Everything about UN internships

Going into the weekend, I want to post this as a reminder for all of you:

It is one of the UN Job List evergreens: Internships in the UN. How do they work? Who can apply? Who offers them?
So, a little while back I wrote a short summary about this topic so here you can find everything you need to know about UN internships. Good luck!
