Attending to requests and aiming at maximizing the chance of our customers in passing the UN YPP, our team has recently released a brand-new e-Book: “United Nations Young Professionals Programme – Manual for Candidates”.

UN YPP Manual

This publication has been carefully prepared to help you achieve your goal and become an international civil servant with the United Nations.

Although the chapters of this e-Book were logically structured based on the stages of the selection process, you are not required to read it linearly. Read it in sequence or skip around, whichever way best suits your needs.

In this manual, you will learn/understand:

  1. About the history and fundamental concepts of international organizations
  2. About the United Nations, its history, purposes and main organs
  3. What the UN System is and how it is structured
  4. What the UN YPP is
  5. What are the UN working areas Young Professionals can work at
  6. Whether or not you are eligible to apply for the program
  7. What the stages of the selection process are
  8. How to best complete each of these stages
  9. What a competency-based process is and how the United Nations perceives competencies
  10. How the screening of applicants is carried out
  11. How to use the UN Secretariat’s virtual recruiting platform – Inspira
  12. The best way to structure your cover letter and fill out your application
  13. How to best prepare for and what to expect from the Written Examination
  14. What competency-based interviews are and how they should be handled
  15. What happens after you are selected – placement on the “Roster”, consideration and selection of rostered candidates

Remember that even if you don’t have plans to apply for this year’s program, or if your country is not amongst the member states invited to take part in the current year’s UN YPP selection process, this manual will prepare you to apply in the coming years!

Here are some reasons why it is worth investing in the “United Nations Young Professionals Programme – Manual for Candidates”:

  • The UN YPP is a long and complex process and this manual was designed to break it down into easy-to-understand sections and chapters! Understanding the UN YPP has never been so easy! Our book will provide candidates with many important details on each stage of the selection process and give tips on how to succeed in each of them .
  • Our previous e-Books have been extremely well evaluated by those who bought them and this one was developed with the same level of professionalism and attention to details as our previous ones.

UN YPP Application Review – PHP and Cover Letter

In the first round of the United Nations YPP, candidates must fill out an online application form, also knows as “Personal History Profile”. The PHP is analyzed in the first stage of the UN YPP selection process and a screening round is performed to filter out candidates who do not meet the program’s basic application criteria. When this process is completed, the list of candidates still in the running may be reduced by up to 70% or 75%.

Therefore, it is of fundamental importance that your application is carefully revised so as to avoid common mistakes and to increase your chances of moving on to the second stage of the selection process. This is exactly what our award-winning team will do for you!

Our professionals, specialized in the United Nations YPP, will carry out proofreading and a technical review of your PHP and cover letter, enormously increasing your chances of succeeding in the first screening round.

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. This is the most important part of your application review since it will look into:

  • The UN YPP basic application criteria and double-check your eligibility to apply for the program;
  • The description of the Duties and Achievements of your previous/current work experiences, making sure they were written and organized accordingly to what is expected by UN recruiters and giving feedback on how to improve this section of your PHP;
  • The Cover Letter content, revising its structure and format and double-checking if the text contains all the fundamental aspects UN recruiters look for in UN YPP candidates’ letters. Advice and thorough feedback are given so as to allow candidates to submit the best Cover Letter.

Why should you invest in our Application Review Service?

  • The first screening round of the UN YPP is entirely based on your online application (PHP + Cover Letter) and many strong candidates fail this stage due to lack of attention and inaccurate information. If you want to increase your chances of being selected, it is crucial that you prepare your application with extreme care and we can help you with that!
  • Our service is carried out by a team of professionals with extensive knowledge of the United Nations YPP and by a native English proofreader to check for any grammar and formatting mistakes. The complete review takes, on average, 2 to 3 hours and after we send you the documents back, we can still talk for clarification and for a final feedback.
  • The Application Review Services we offer on our website are extremely well evaluated by our former customers.

Our Application Review Service can really increase your chances of passing the first screening round and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

United Nations YPP Universities

OpenIGO overall services are extremely well-rated by those who bought them! These are some of the testimonials we’ve had for our products:

“Great timely service with specialized advice. I passed onto the UN written examination and OpenIGO’s tips definitely helped.”

“Great service! The mock interview and book significantly improved my performance at the interview”

“Very happy I heard about OpenIGO during my application process, even though it was only once I started preparing for the interview/assessment stage. I doubted at first because of the cost, but I’m extremely happy I made the investment, because both the e-Book and mock interview proved very useful. The mock interview was with two people who took almost 1,5 hours AND they came prepared, which is much more than the 40 mins I expected. Thanks a lot!”

“The mock interview was really useful. Particularly John Tude gave many advice which really help me to be more confident”.

“Definitely worth it. As someone who went in without a clear idea of what would be expected, the ebook and mock interview were incredibly informative. I particularly appreciated the feedback at the end”.

“The application review service was essential for me to go on to the next rounds and be interviewed by the YPP team.  It’s true I was not selected this time, but OpenIGO really helped me reach where I did in this competitive selection. Thank you to the OpenIGO team.”
