UN Law Careers - Application Review

Generally, in the first phase of the UN selection processes for law professionals, you must fill out an online application form and upload documents (Curriculum Vitae/Resume, Cover Letter, etc.). However, some UN legal jobs may require that candidates submit these documents by e-mail. In both cases, these documents are decisive for your success in these competitive selection processes. Therefore, it is of fundamental importance that your documents are carefully reviewed! This is exactly what our award-winning team will do for you. 

At OpenIGO, we have analyzed documents from dozens of UN legal jobs candidates. This service is confidential and your files will be deleted from our systems when the service has been completed.

A review of your documents will be carried out in two stages:

  1. Proofreading – highly qualified native English proofreaders will check your writing, formatting, correct errors and suggest improvements;
  2. Technical review – a team formed of PhD professors with vast experience at intergovernmental organizations will carry out a technical review of the documents that you submit to the UN selection process, offering feedback for improvement. The fit of your documents with the UN policies and strategies will be evaluated. However, we also highlight that our team will not write your CV/Resume or Cover Letter nor prepare any other documents for you. Our aim is to enhance your application. The merit of passing the selection process is all yours.

 Why is it worth buying our application review?

  • It is a service of extremely high quality and care. A professor, with extensive knowledge of international organizations’ selection processes, carries out a technical review that, on average, takes 3.5 hours. In addition, a proofreader spends an additional hour checking your documents.
  • These documents are evaluated in all the different rounds of the UN legal selection process. If you really want a strong application, it is essential that you prepare your documents with extreme care.
  • The Application Review Services we offer on our website are extremely well evaluated by our former customers.
  • Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

UN Law Careers - Mock Interview

The selection cycle of UN Jobs for law students includes an interview phase, whose main aim is to find out more about the candidate, and analyze their knowledge, competences, and experience. It is widely understood and disseminated by the United Nations that their interview model is the competency-based interview (CBI) but, in fact, it is mixed, combining competency-based questions with traditional ones.  

Having a mock interview with a professional who has extensive experience and knowledge of the UN interview model will help you be better prepared for this phase, greatly increasing your chances of being selected for the desired vacancy.

UN Jobs mock interviews are held via Skype (preferably), WhatsApp, Facetime or Hangouts, conducted by an interview specialist as per the original UN model and last around 60 minutes.

If you have arrived at this point in the selection process, you cannot afford to miss the opportunity for additional qualification. The value invested is nothing compared to the energy you have invested up until now, and with the benefits you will obtain when you are approved!

 Why is it worth buying our mock interview?

  • On average, the interviewer (a professor with a Ph.D. who is a specialist on the UN System Jobs and Careers) spends approximately two hours reading all your documents and preparing a script to be used in your interview, plus around one hour in a mock interview with you. Every interview is personalized and unique.
  • The entire experience is set to reproduce the interview in the same way that is carried out by the UN recruiters.
  • The Mock Interview Services we offer on our website have been extremely well evaluated by those who bought it.
  • Practicing is key to succeeding in a Competency-Based Interview and if you have the opportunity to practice with professionals that can give you feedback on your performance it’s even better! At the end of your mock interview, you will receive thorough feedback and tips to improve aspects that deserve special attention.
