UN YPP 2017 applications are now open
The application period for the United Nations Young Professionals Programme 2017 is now open!
The UN YPP 2017 is offered in three job networks:
- Political, Peace and Humanitarian (POLNET);
- Management and Administration (MAGNET);
- Public Information and Conference Management (INFONET).
The application period for all networks will last for 60 days, from 23 June 2017 to 22 August 2017 (closes at 11:59 PM New York time).
To apply for the UN YPP 2017, you should meet the requirements listed here.
Applications are submitted through the UN online recruitment system Inspira using the Personal History Profile (PHP) form.
The PHP is an online resume used by the United Nations. The UN YPP applications are screened by a special software, which automatically filters and ‘ranks’ UN YPP 2017 candidates. Selected applicants are reviewed by the UN YPP examination board and invited to sit the written examination.
The PHP is a complex form: many potentially successful applicants do not pass the screening stage because they inadvertently communicate incomplete or imprecise information to the system. We therefore offer you our assistance by revising your PHP form and providing a detailed feedback and suggestions on improvements on your PHP (including the cover letter).
