May Career Table: Preparing for Competency Based Interviews

One more fundamental step in your successful research for a job is the first meeting with your future possible employer. After printing your resume, and getting into the appropriate dress, you have to make up your mind and be prepared to find the best words to introduce yourself, your experiences and your skills. This is the aim of the next Career Table on May 3rd: join us and meet Sophie Brivady, Human Resources Officer in UNICEF, who will offer NYLESA members her huge expertise and her precious advises.


May Career Table will be focused on the competency based interview, a common recruitment tool used in the development sector and told from the perspective of UNICEF. With the help of Ms. Brivady, we will delve into some HR terms and methods that will help you focus on the right things when preparing for your next interview. Our presenter will also address the types of questions to expect and how to answer these questions. Finally, we will dedicate some time to questions and answers.

When: Wednesday, 3 May, 10am to 12pm. 
Where:  At the UN. Exact location will be sent by email to those that register.
