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. 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.

I now understand better which organisations to engage with and which are not applicable.

A great saving of time and effort!

Career changer
It was at a cinfo forum that I made first contacts with several organisations. I had just completed my PhD and wanted to explore new opportunities in the humanitarian and impact sector.

A few months later, I was contacted by the World Food Programme for a consultancy at their HQ in Rome – my first job and invaluable hands-on experience in the UN system.
