UN Job List: About me and my motivation to host this page

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.

  1. I know it is frustrating to get the same questions and misunderstandings again and again. However, the fact this is happening should just tell you that you are really reaching the UN audience. 😉

  2. Hi, Firstly, I’ve found plenty of jobs through your site and very thankful for your efforts. I had a hunch that you’re doing this because of the technical challenge because honestly speaking, I can’t see any other reason why. 🙂 I have yet to get successful with my applications and getting slowly frustrated. I think these seemingly baseless queries you get are based on frustration and desperation. Anyway, hang in there and, thanks again.

  3. Just to say Thank you for having a site such as this. It is very beneficial since all the UN jobs are listed.
    Appreciate your interest in keeping this going.
    Once again thank you.
