Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UNHCR (Cairo (Egypt)) in July 2015.

Interview

You apply through online site. If you are shortlisted you shall pass a written technical exam and then an interview with a panel of at least 3 persons including 1 HR staff. It takes long time, 2 to 6 months sometimes. It takes 45 minutes. People are usually kind and this doesn't mean that they like you or will definitely choose you. The interview is usually composed of competency questions however it may include technical questions (direct or in scenario form).

Interview Questions

  • Written test:
    - What are the persons of interest concerns?
    - What is SGBV (definition and forms)?
    - Speak about tools of SGBV prevention and response?
    Interview questions are competency questions:
    - Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    - Why you see yourself the best candidate for this post?
    - Tell us about a situation when you completely failed to finalize your task.
    - Scenario questions as: what if you had to choose between serving an applicant (with a serious concern) or go to a meeting with the representative?
