If you are a young professional, passionate about international development, and are looking for a career with social impact, in a multicultural environment full of new challenges, then you are in the right place. Here you will find out how to create an excellent Personal History Profile and Cover Letter and earn a place on the United Nations Young Professionals Programme (UN YPP), one of the United Nations Secretariat’s most prestigious, competitive and thorough selection processes.
Every year the UN receives approximately 50,000 applications for the YPP, which selects around 100 highly qualified young people from around the world who wish to start an international career, hone their skills and assist the organization in fulfilling its mission.
As you can see, it is not an easy process but you can succeed if you are well prepared. That is why we are here: to provide you with step-by-step assistance to earn your place on the YPP. We have developed preparatory services for you with everything that you need to know to stand out in all the 2020 YPP selection process stages.
In the first round of the UN YPP selection process, you must fill out a Personal History Profile (PHP) form (an online application form used by the UN). This document will be analyzed not only in the first round, but in all of the others, and is decisive for your success in this competitive selection process. The PHP must show that you have the technical knowledge and skills desired by the UN; it should be well structured and contain no grammar, spelling, punctuation or eligibility criteria mistakes.
Therefore, it is of fundamental importance that your PHP is carefully reviewed. This is exactly what our award-winning team will do for you. Our UN YPP application review service includes a review of the:
1) YPP Eligibility Criteria;
2) Work experience – “Duties and Achievements” examination;
3) Correction of the cover letter structure and format;
The review will be carried out in two stages:
Proofreading – highly qualified native English proofreaders will check your writing, formatting, correct errors and suggest improvements;
Technical review – a team formed of PhD professionals with vast experience at the United Nations (UN) will carry out a technical review of the documents that you submit to the UN YPP, offering feedback for improvement.
