The United Nation Development Program (UNDP) is the financial and technical cooperative effort of many countries working in South Asia to strengthen the middle class. This has led to the growth of thousands of foreign job opportunities in the region. Most of these jobs are highly skilled, which is why the demand for them is always high. For example, a carpenter who travels from his home in India to Pakistan or China to earn a decent living may require reference checks, background investigations and sometimes even visa sponsorship. On the other hand, a translator from a country such as China who wants to relocate to another country such as India could also benefit from a reference check followed by an interview in order to secure a position.
As per most recent trends, Indian job seekers have become quite dominant when it comes to recruitment. In many countries in the region, there are only a few job openings for native English speaking candidates. As a result, those looking for a good paying and meaningful career move abroad in search of better jobs. Unied Dicpora, an organization dedicated to assisting Indian Diaspora community, claims that at least six Diasporas have relocated to Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines in search of higher paying jobs. The organization estimates that at least three million people from India are living in various Asian countries. With the recent global economic downturn, job losses are on a rise and the number of job-seeking candidates also declined for the past few years.
But the situation has changed. According to a news report, the United Nations Department of Public Employment (DPE) has begun conducting checks on potential employees from across different regions. Specifically, the United NationsDPE is conducting a series of tests and evaluations for new job vacancies in its global talent program. Applicants applying for a job vacancy need to undergo three basic steps which are described as eligibility screening, on-the-job training and reference checks. Each of these three steps is designed to determine the applicant’s suitability and potentials to contribute to the growth of the organization. All these steps are being implemented to ensure the safe and fair employment of all eligible applicants.
One important criterion that the recruitment agency use to evaluate potential employees is their ability to speak the language of the country where they intend to apply for a job. Applicants who can fluently converse in the language of the country where they intend to work are considered the best. On the other hand, those with limited English proficiency are being carefully studied. Applicants with limited English proficiency will be required to take a test to evaluate their English conversational skills. Applicants with good scores in the competency area will be given priority for jobs vacancies during the UNDP recruitment strategy for nations development programme.
In addition to this, job vacancies are being advertised through online applications as well. Applicants may apply for vacancies either online or by visiting the offices of the recruitment units. Jobseekers can select from various job opportunities offered by the organisation in their location. The process of applying for a job vacancy online is quite simple. Users have to simply fill in an application form with the required details.
It is necessary to submit the complete application form so as to ensure that the information submitted is correct. This helps in reducing the possibility of selecting applicants who may not be able to meet the requirements. Applicants can also subscribe to the job alert provided by the agency so as to receive periodic notification about available vacancies. Individuals interested in applying for any vacant positions in UNDP Recruitment must register with the job alert so as to receive notifications whenever new vacancies arise.
