I attended the PHP Writing Course in 2015. After 13 years on a UN job I decided I needed a career change. I was considering leaving the UN and given the fact that these days a lot of companies and organizations use competency-based recruitment I decided to attend the PHP Writing Course. I found the course interesting so I also attended the accompanying Interview Skills Course and I took advantage of the one-on-one interview coaching sessions, offered by the SDLS Colleagues. I ended up applying for another post within the UN system for which I was subsequently selected. I believe the offered advice is indispensable for beginners and long-term staff alike looking to begin or diversify their UN careers.
