Looking for an entry level job? The UN’s YPP is open now!

The UN’s Young professional programme (YPP) is open for applications now! Here is what the UN says:

The United Nations is looking for highly qualified candidates who are ready to launch a professional career as an international civil servant. The young professionals programme (YPP) is a recruitment initiative that brings new talent to the United Nations through an annual entrance examination. For young, high-calibre professionals across the globe, the examination is a platform for launching a career at the United Nations. This programme builds upon the national competitive recruitment examination (NCRE) which was held for the last time in 2010.

So for all of you who are asking for entry level jobs, this is the UN programme that is geared towards your needs. Please note though that this is a very competitive programme so prepare yourself well when applying to it!

The YPP programme website is here.

  1. Well, Thanks for the opportunity, Alas my country is not listed (Iran) Although I consider myself as a cosmopolitan. Good Luck

  2. I am really interested in the Young Professionals Programme, but I am not sure if it is right for me. Due to relationship issues, I must be able to live in the US. Is there a way that I can make sure that I stay at a duty station in NYC? Or should I just apply for an entry level job at the NY office?

    And finally, is it better to go to grad school and land an internship or get into an entry level position, and take graduate classes and not do the internship?

    Thanks so much!
