Service Description:

If you are a young professional, passionate about international development, and are looking for a career with social impact, in a multicultural environment full of new challenges, then you are in the right place. By buying the UN YPP Mock Interview you will find out how to earn a place on the United Nations Young Professionals Programme (YPP), one of the United Nations Secretariat’s most prestigious, competitive and thorough selection processes.

Every year the UN receives approximately 50,000 applications for the YPP, which selects around 100 highly qualified young people from around the world who wish to start an international career, hone their skills and assist the organization in fulfilling its mission.

As you can see, it is not an easy process but you can succeed if you are well prepared. That is why we are here: to provide you with step-by-step assistance to earn your place on the YPP. We have developed preparatory services for you with everything that you need to know to stand out in all the 2021 YPP selection process stages.

The UN YPP selection cycle includes also an oral examination phase, which consists of a competency-based video-conference interview, whose main aim is to find out more about the candidate, and analyze their knowledge, competencies and experience. Only successful candidates in the written examination will be invited to take part in the oral examination.

Having a mock interview with a professional who has extensive experience and knowledge of the UN YPP interview model will help you be better prepared for this stage of the selection process, greatly increasing your chances of succeeding in it. UN YPP mock interviews are held via Skype (preferably), WhatsApp, Facetime or Hangouts, conducted by an interview specialist and last between 50 and 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 YPP 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.
