    Interview

    Fairly short and effective hiring and interview process for an international organization. The only entry is through application on their website. Shortlisted candidates will be called for a competency based interview which is the standard interview model in international organizations. The interview itself is conducted by a team of representatives from the Organization.

    Negotiation

    I put forward a counter offer and it was accepted in accordance with standard practice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at IAEA in September 2012.

    Interview

    The post was advertised on their website and applications done on their website. After a few months a competency-based interview was done remotely. Then a few months letter a competency-based interview done via video-conferencing.

    Interview Questions

    • Since this was competency-based interview all the regular questions were present. At the end the panel asked whether I had anything to add that would enhance my candidature. The answer I gave should have been more comprehensive.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was basically non-negotiable

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a year or moreinterviewed at IAEA (Vienna (Austria)) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process is slow, takes in most cases about a year, and there are about 200 CVs for every post. First there is a computerized matching based on electronic filtering, then review by the managers, then a panel interview with final selection. Average interview 10 questions in front of a 5 person panel. Note that the visa sponsoring capability of the UN means that you are in competition with a global market.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions - but focus on what you did (I) and not the team (we)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - everything is set to UN standards. Be careful - if you are sponsored by the US government (State Department) I have heard comments from them about the salaries of UN employees.
