Tips and recommendations for your online application
Before starting the application, you are recommended to examine the sample copy of the application document. This will give you the opportunity to collect and prepare all the requested information that you need before starting the application process.
It is a good idea to pre-type some information outside of the system and use the “cut and paste” method to reduce the time needed online and chance of error in the system.
The Personal History Form (P11)
Here are some guiding tips to help you complete a Personal History Form (P11) correctly:

- For consultancies, please indicate a lump sum annual amount or the daily rate

- For UN positions, please indicate the type of contract and salary level, i.e. P1, P2 etc
- Clearly specify unpaid volunteer and internships as such
- Kindly avoid overlapping employment periods unless followed by explanatory text
The “Cover letter” offers you the opportunity to explain what has motivated you to apply for the specific position (or positions). It is also an opportunity for you to highlight what you think are your most relevant qualifications for the particular position(s) you are interested in.
Please note that you are expected to write a separate and relevant cover letter for each position for which you are applying.
For your cover letter(s), please use the language indicated beside the respective vacancy notice, which is the language of the duty station and in which a high level of competency is required. There is, however, provision for limited language training for the selected candidate if necessary.
Please list any relevant work experience you have. You may include internships, part-time or voluntary work as well as full-time paid work – but please indicate if it is unpaid or part-time. It is important to include a detailed description of the main responsibilities and tasks you carried out during each period of employment.
