Service Description:

If you are looking to kick-start your career with an international organization, you have come to the right place! Working for an organization within the United Nations System is a dream for many professionals across the globe, since the opportunities offered often combine good remuneration and a wide range of benefits with meaningful work. OpenIGO can help you increase your chances of succeeding in these competitive selection processes with our UN Jobs Mock Interview service!

Most selection processes across the UN System include an interview phase, which aims to find out more about the candidate, and analyze their knowledge, competences, and experience. It is widely understood that the interview model adopted by the United Nations is the Competency-Based Interview (CBI) but, in fact, it is mixed, combining this model with the traditional interview.

Having a mock interview with a professional who has extensive experience and knowledge of the UN System interview model will help you be better prepared for this phase, greatly increasing your chances of being selected for the desired vacancy. The UN Jobs Mock Interview is held by Skype (preferably), WhatsApp, Facetime or Hangouts, conducted by an interview specialist and lasts around 60 minutes. Our interviewers (including a professor with a PhD, who is a specialist in International Organizations) spend approximately two hours reading all your documents and preparing a script as per the UN model and also based on your Personal History Profile, plus around one hour in a mock interview with you. Every interview is personalized and unique.

Please note: we strongly recommend that you read the Interview chapter in our UN Jobs and Careers eBook which will soon be available at our Online Store!
