Forum cinfo at a glance

Forum cinfo is the Swiss career event for international cooperation. With its career fair and conference, the forum inspires, informs, facilitates networking, and provides a setting to gain new perspectives and broaden your horizons.

Forum cinfo connects professionals at all stages of their careers with a wide range of internationally active organisations – and is an excellent opportunity to make new contacts and open doors.

This year, the forum will take place on Friday 11 November at the Wankdorf Stadium in Bern. A lighter online version will be available in parallel for professionals abroad who cannot or do not wish to travel to Switzerland.

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.
