Don’t feel overwhelmed!
As a high school student you may or may not be familiar with a hiring process beyond the absolute basics. Furthermore, we recognize that as a student, you likely haven’t had as much time to develop skills and gain experiences.
That’s why we dedicate our time and effort into evaluating your skills, and contextual knowledge you can bring to the table.
It’s a conversation ABOUT YOU
Help us assess you accurately and fairly by:
Tell us about your transferable skills: Being a secretariat involves a set of skills that can be developed through various involvement outside of Model UN. If you have organized events in student council, managed a club, or tutored younger students, chances are you’ve developed some skills and obtained knowledge that can be beneficial to this Secretariat position.
Avoid empty statements: While you may be tempted to use statements such as, “I have strong leadership/communication/teamwork skills”, this alone doesn’t tell us anything meaningful about you. We want to know what you did, why you did it, what effect it had, and how you think this experience/skill can help you as a secretariat.
