    Programmer Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Paris (France)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at UNESCO in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Around 3 months to be in post, I think, this is good for UNESCO. It was not a permanent position, which explains that the length of time was smaller than for permanent positions (where delays can be up to 9 months).
    My CV was preselected, then I had one interview, by phone. I do not remember having a second face to face interview, though maybe I did. The panel was made of approximately 4 persons. They were nice and put the candidates at ease. I officially knew of the result of my interview relatively quickly - less than a month after the interview I think. I personally knew informally before too.

    Interview Questions
    • No question was extremely difficult - they asked about the way my past experience would help me on my new job and, as I was already an employee at UNESCO, but in another position, they had slightly tricky questions about things that may have gone wrong in my previous position.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    This was a promotion, and I was getting a higher grade. For a given grade and step, there is only one salary possible, so there is no negotiation possible in this respect. They put me at the lowest step in my new grade. Actually, I realized another colleague negotiated to get a higher step in that grade - based on her experience. However, this is not a common occurrence at all as this is not simply about extra experience but also relevance of the experience to the job etc. I would therefore personally not try to negotiate when applying. The salary for the job is actually most often provided in the job description... and is largely sufficient!
