HOW WEYAKUM ASSISTS EMIRATIS THROUGH THE PROCESS

Weyakum conducts emirates-wide awareness programmes to give all Emiratis a fair chance to learn and participate in the UN’s Young Professionals Programme.

Eligible candidates are then invited to Weyakum’s awareness and  training sessions where we will provide you with step by step guidance throughout application process. This includes:

  • creating a competitive application profile to pass the screening stage
  • writing a resume & cover letter that stands out 
  • accurately going through the application’s screening questions
  • learning all about the United Nations and its various entities
  • preparing for the examination and interview stage
  • and much more…

Emiratis can use these acquired skills to apply to any job in the future… And many of them have successfully done so already!

“The United Nations is seeking to increase the number of Emiratis working for the organization.  One way to join the United Nations is to take the Young Professionals Programme (YPP) recruitment examination.  In this regard, we highly appreciate the efforts made by Weyakum, under the leadership of Ms. Ameera Amir, to attract, inform and encourage qualified young Emiratis to participate in the YPP.  Her efforts have been instrumental in increasing the number of persons from the UAE who applied for the examination in 2014 and we are grateful for her continued efforts to encourage more Emiratis to participate in 2015.”
