Learning & Career Management
The JPO Service Center offers a wide range of learning and career development services and initiatives to support Young Professionals during their assignment.
Learning opportunities include virtual induction briefings, orientation programmes, buddy systems, thematic masterclasses, and creating safe environments where Young Professionals can exchange their thoughts and views and can freely network. The goal is to equip them with the skills, connections and knowledge required to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to make their assignment as fulfilling as possible.
This goal is reinforced by the career development services the JPOSC provides. These include mentoring programmes, reviewing CVs and other UN internal documents, mock interview sessions, career masterclasses and guidance on best practices and methodologies when job hunting within the UN system. Providing this kind of services allows Young Professionals to better define and identify career objectives and paths.
