Career Seminar ‘Human Resource Requirements in the United Nations’

Updated Jun. 1, 2021
Date: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 16:40-18:10(5th period)
A career seminar on the human resource requirements in the United Nations (UN) was conducted by Tadamichi Yamamoto, a former Special Representative of the Secretary-General (Under Secreatary General) for Afghanistan and Head of UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA). In order to prevent the potential transmission of the novel coronavirus, the seminar was held online and lasted for 1 ½ hours.
The speaker began with an introduction of the brief history of the UN, the purpose of its creation in 1945, its achievements, and the challenges it is facing with the competition between western countries and China/Russia, the climate change and the COVID pandemic.
Relating his work and experience with UNAMA, he also discussed the characteristics and limitations of the work of the UN. He listed in detail of the significant areas that UNAMA is working on and the actual work done by the UN staff on the ground.
Advice about the needed attitude when interacting with Afghan people and some pointers on possible avenues and options of joining the UN organization were provided by the speaker.
His soft tone of voice for the participants allowed us to assume that he had worked so hard for many negotiations in the pursuance of his duty.
There were questions from the participants: withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, democratization in Afghanistan, United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, etc. We had a lively Q&A session until the very last minute.
We deeply hope that the participants would aspire to obtain a job in international organizations including the UN.
