How to get UN
Even if you have the appropriate specialty and level of qualification to work in the UN to get a job in one of the organizations entering into its structure will not be easy. This is due primarily to the fact that the quota allocated to citizens of Russia and many countries of the CIS, every year is exceeded. Go on the Russian website of the United Nations (http://www.un.org/ru/) and check the size of the quota for the next year, in order to realistically assess their opportunities for employment.
Visit the page http://www.unsystem.org and check the list of websites of organizations belonging to the UN. Then visit those which you would be interested. Find out the conditions of applying for jobs offered by each of these units.
To apply for employment, please first contact the website http://careers.un.org and sign up as a candidate for your chosen position.
Can happen so that you can start to work at the UN, literally not leaving the house, since I live in a region where there are no official representatives, or where assistance is required from the organization. In this case, control of your work will be carried out by local authorities, and that you will need to coordinate your future actions.
Depending on in what region of the country and the UN peace requires staff with your qualifications, you will have to constantly coordinate with agencies and departments of different levels (including ministries).
Even if you decide to join the ranks of volunteers, one of the missions in the most prosperous regions, your activity may be different from the salvation of the population dying from exotic diseases, to work as a temporary consultant on international issues.
Before you get to work in the UN, take a test and pass exams on knowledge of the official language of your chosen country. The testing program usually includes questions regarding international law and the laws of the state in which you are applying.
