    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UNICEF (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Round 1: Resume and cover letter
    Round 2 (had two separate 30-45minute interviews): In person interview with department and then HR. The HR interview was fairly generic with mostly behavioural questions. The department interview was more conversational than I expected with back and forth questions about my experience and how that fit into UNICEF's work.

    Interview Questions

    • HR: strengths, weaknesses, resume questions
      Department: resume questions, previous experience, why UNICEF

    Phone interview. Very straightforward and simple. Questions about experience and why you are interested in the job. A few follow-up questions were asked about prior experience. The whole process took about 4-6 weeks (this takes into account the Christmas holiday period). Interviewers were very courteous and helpful in answering questions.
