E-mail alert for UN Vacancies – be one of the 20 first to sign-up

Update 24-May-07: The sign-up is closed for now – please stand by for the official launch of the newsletter in a few weeks – thanks

I’m in the process of implementing an e-mail alert for UN Job List wich would provide you with the latest job listings via e-mail. What I’m developing is a weekly alert which firstly lists new opportunities that match your search criteria and secondly contains a list of all vacancies that will close in the coming week.

Programming the alert was a bit more complex than I thought but I managed to get it done. To make sure that I can handle all the requests and to get some experiences with different e-mail servers and how they treat my alert I will open the alert to only a few people at this time.
This week, I will allow up to 20 people to sign-up for UN Job List e-mail alert. The weeks to follow I will gradually allow more and more subscriptions.
Be one of the first to benefit from the UN Job List e-mail alert by leaving me a comment below! I will contact you via e-mail in the order of the comments and provide you with the details on how to sign-up.

Have fun,
Sebastian

UN Job List features a new advanced search now

I had a little time over the weekend so I implemented an advanced search for UN Job List. You can refine your RSS feed / bookmark now by searching the United Nations job opportunities on UN Job List e.g. for everything that has “communication? in the job title but exclude “technology? if you are interested in real communication jobs and want to avoid the IT vacancies.
Check it out at: http://unjoblist.org/lists/advancedsearch

Leave me a comment below and tell me how it works. On the long run, I think this will become the only search on UN Job List.

“Fresh Direct” for Denmark – Yellowman.dk

I just found out that there is a “Fresh Direct” clone in Denmark: http://www.yellowman.dk/index.php?main_page=index&language=en (they even have an English page)

This is really a good sign in this “almost always closed” country.

Especially trying to get dry cleaning done as well as any interaction with the DSB or the post office has been a big pain for me since I almost have to take a day off to get my stuff organized. The opening hours are usually during my working hours. The most absurd thing happened with the DSB. I wanted to pick-up a ticket to Germany and was sent away since international tickets were only issued between 9.30 and 17.30 since those tickets are complicated to print and need specially trained personnel to get issued. I got back after 9.30 and the same lady at the same place and the same computer printed the ticket for me. Trying to be compliant, next time I came after 9.30 only to find out that at this day international tickets were issued between 11.30 and 17.30. Again I heard the story about the specially trained person etc. To be fair, I got the ticket after insisting that I really want to have it and don’t understand the reasoning behind the randomly changing opening hours.
