Preparing for the selection procedures of international organizations

For many hopefuls, entry into the working world of international organizations (IO) and institutions is often difficult. Even if sufficient professional experience and knowledge is available, major hurdles remain the lack of transparency of selection procedures, the lack of knowledge about basic eligibility criteria and the unfamiliar use of international standards in the application process.

For 20 years now, Seibel – WorldWide Living has been preparing individuals and groups for the different aspects of selection and application procedures, conducting in-house trainings for specific application procedures of international organizations as well as teaching at universities on how to prepare for international selection procedures. Key themes:

  • Competency based selection procedures
  • Typical test modules and examination content
  • Preparing for the assessment centers of the EU
  • Convincing applications: Curriculum Vitae (CVs), motivating cover letters, applicaton forms
  • Self-marketing: motivation, arguing the benefits, profile of characteristics
  • Developing a personal career strategy
