Those who have ever applied for any position with the UN know about the infamous P-11 also known as Personal History Profile. Personally I see it as the first challenge of the whole application process, kind of like a red flag from HR people: if you’re dedicated enough to fill out this massive, clumsy and totally-not-UI-friendly online profile, then we guess you’re worthy of our consideration.
Well, I’m happy to share that last week I completed the whole things for the first time in maybe 2-3 years of regular, yet failed attempts and today I sent off my first complete (internship) application through Inspira (UN job application system). I feel like this is a big accomplishment in and of itself, because honestly, the process of filling out that online application is pretty gruesome.
Here’s to battling bureaucracy like a champ!
