    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna (Austria)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna (Austria)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Interview Details

    Submission-time questions for further screening (online).
    A 1 hour written examination
    In-person interviews

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were very general and I would have expected something more specific. The service management questions were almost non-existent. The written examination was far more difficult and yet somehow easier to answer the questions because they were less about "me" and more about "the work". The in-person interview was all about getting to know me as the candidate.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    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.
