It also provides access to the UN’s institutions and staff, allowing you to build networks and gain insights into future career steps. Attend dedicated career development sessions to learn how to optimize your CV, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile, from professionals.

The field visit includes activities with the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and other Geneva-based institutions.
