A lot of the information in this book is what you will undoubtedly discover for yourself after spending some time working in UN organisations. However by buying this e-book today you will save yourself a lot of time and effort and get a headstart on those who don’t have this information. So treat this e-book as an investment – as that is exactly what it is, an investment for your future, because your time is valuable.

This e-book is primarily aimed at early career professionals who have either just graduated or only done internships up until this point. It is also suitable for those who have worked in non-IGO environments and are looking to make a career change into roles at the UN or other International Organisations.

This e-book contains the information related to the experience of the author with UN organisations as well as of some of his colleagues who were kind enough to be interviewed for the book.

It is just over 100 pages broken down into 17 chapters.

Jador Makh has worked in the fields of the environment and international development on four continents for numerous international and grassroots non-profit organisations, including several UN
organisations.  

Jador has experience with the UN application procedures from applying for hundreds of positions at the UN himself, supporting the applications of many others, and helping in the hiring process of several others.

Jador Makh is a pen name used to write this book in order to avoid any negative impacts on the author’s career due to some of the controversial opinions he expresses in the book and to maintain his privacy in his working environment in general.  

As with most things, you will get out of this book what you put into it. This book is pretty special but it won’t do the application for you! (That being said it does contain an application walk-through)

Nevertheless, if you apply the guidance from this book you will have a much better chance of succeeding in building your UN career, as well as ultimately deciding whether or not that is what you want to do.
