    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Nations (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Application submitted through Inspira. Department reached out and arranged first interview with HR personnel. Second interview scheduled a week later with Chief of Unit. About a month passed before I got my selection email. Two weeks later, after submitting documents I got the start date. Lengthy process. Be patient.
