We are YPUN – a private company registered in the UK helping young professionals build an international development career. Mainly focusing on the United Nations Young Professionals Programme (UN YPP), we support and guide candidates through the whole process of this highly competitive recruitment initiative. Please note that we are not affiliated with the official UN authorities.
YPUN was founded in 2014 to help young professionals get hired for their ideal job in the international affairs area with a meaningful raise while skipping the irritation of the typically discouraging failures. During the last four years, we have a strong record of success proven by reviews and feedback of our clients.
Our company offers comprehensive services to young professionals, helping them to secure a job at the United Nations. These services include a general career coaching and also assist with the UN YPP which consists of applications and cover letters reviews, preparation to the written examination, mock interviews:
Applying for the UN YPP? Many potentially successful applicants do not pass the screening stage because they inadvertently communicate incomplete or imprecise information to the system. We will review your application form (PHP) and provide detailed feedback on improvements for creating a stronger profile.
Preparing for the written exam? In this most competitive UN YPP stage, we will assist you by providing an opportunity to test and advance your knowledge through the materials with mock exam questions designed by us, which are a close match with the UN YPP exam questions. Such materials for the UN YPP 2020 cohort will be available soon, please follow the updates on our website.
Invited for the interview? For the final stage of the UN YPP examination, we will arrange you a mock competency-based interview and provide detailed feedback and suggestions on improving your performance at the real UN interview.
Our services are provided by experts that are hired by us on an as-needed basis with the skills and expertise necessary to provide assistance at the excellent quality level.
Most of our experts are engaged on an annual or a bi-annual basis, making them highly experienced in the UN YPP guidance and coaching. Some of them have participated and passed the UN YPP examination in the past, or have been previously employed in the United Nations as staff members or consultants, making them “insiders” of the UN recruitment process.
