Language Competitive  Exams:

Temporary Jobs:
Still making decisions about your career? not quite ready for a long-term professional commitment? Perhaps you like the idea of change, career breaks and moving around. Or alternatively, you may just be interested in getting your toe through the door at the United Nations to see what we do and whether you would be interested. If you are this person then a temporary position at the United Nations might be just what you need.
