Note from Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, Vera Dimoplon
As we discussed in our meeting today, I wanted to share this resource with you. If you ever considered having an internship with the United Nations, right now is a great time to apply. The UN is a wonderful opportunity for those who are passionate about global issues, or the problems that are local, but are true to every corner of the international community. To see all available UN positions (paid and unpaid), go to Inspira (https://inspira.un.org/psp/PUNA1J/?cmd=login&languageCd=ENG&). You will be able to create your profile and be registered with the pool of applicants from which the UN Offices identify successful candidates for their positions. If you have questions about the UN or how to engage with it, I would be happy to chat with you. Please feel free to email me or stop by my virtual walk-in hours.

The United Nations, with offices in 193 countries and 37,000 employees, is the world’s largest universal multilateral international organization. It inspires people from around the world to join its mission of maintaining peace, advancing human rights and promoting justice, equality and development.
Securing employment with the Organization can seem like a daunting task, but as the scope of its work is global and multidimensional, there are many different entry points for candidates of varied educational backgrounds and diverse professional experience.

This series will cover various positions in the United Nations and useful resources to guide you through the procedures and processes. Below is the list of articles in the series:
