Could anyone let me know how long their process usually takes? I applied to the Paris office about a month ago. Thanks.

Patience is the name of the game... Jan 11

It all depends on how and why you got in touch with them… Was this a job advertisement or did you just offer your services? Though every international organization has different procedures, in the first case it might take several months depending on their urgency. In the second case, I believe that they will always respond to emails, but you have to know that they receive a lot of requests and it takes time to reply, test, and evaluate. So, be patient...

Call for tenders? Jan 12

International organisations have to publish calls for tender. Did you submit an offer? Or did you contact UNESCO in a more informal way?

No response = no interest.
