Introduction to the UN Career Fair 2015

The UN Career Fair 2015 was jointly hosted by UN offices and international organizations located in ROK to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the UN by engaging the student community. It provided a number of lectures given by the heads of UN offices on a wide range of topics, including refugees (UNHCR), the zero hunger challenge (WFP) and forced migration (IOM). The programme included a press conference style session in which a four-person panel made up of current UN staff talked to the students about their experience of working at the UN and participated in an engaging discussion.

The career fair attracted some 2,500 young people not only from the surrounding Seoul but also from other regions of the country and abroad, eager to learn more about the UN and explore career opportunities in the UN system. This kind of information is not easily accessible to a lot of young people in Korea.

A student told the ENEA Office about his experience that day: “I’ve come to realize that there are many people around the world working behind the scenes to make the world a better place.”
