Unique event in Switzerland

cinfo organises the Forum, the only career event for international cooperation in Switzerland. It is geared to the needs of a wide range of actors and represents the commitment and dynamism of an entire professional field.

I was at a crossroads in my career and someone suggested I should explore opportunities with the UN. But I had no clue how or where to apply.

I learned about the Forum cinfo. There I had the opportunity to submit my CV for feedback. I spoke to a UNFPA HR professional. The discussion was fruitful, and he guided me on the way forward. This was my entry point to the UN.
