    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at World Health Organization.

    Interview

    I applied through the main WHO employment website. I received an email that I had been selected to complete the technical "exam" which I was given 48 hours to complete and return. I was notified within a few days following the submission of the exam that I received an interview, and I had an interview lasting about 1 hour via Skype with the position supervisor.
