    I have been working at United Nations Foundation full-time


    UNF is a great place to work, I have been here for 4 years and the experience has been wonderful. The opportunity to see how international development has changed, and is changing, and to be at at organization that is at the cutting edge has really been great. With the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals this month there is a huge amount of excitement about how UNF will be involved and help those in need. Keep it up!


    No real cons come to mind, given other places I have worked, we are well provided for. Only con I can think of is the high price of rent in DC, but that's another story.

    Advice to Management

    Exciting times ahead, can't wait to hear more news about UNF and the Sustainable Development Goals.

    Very casual and laid-back. No super-hard questions and the interviewers seemed genuinely interested in me and my experiences. Did not get an offer but they were very nice about it.
