Are you struggling with reading a UN Job Description/ToR and customizing your application. There are people who don't do it and need to start, but lately, it has been highly conscientious people who try too hard, work to cover everything in the entire Job Description/ToR into their application, growing gray hairs in the process. In this video Career Coach Veronika Ambertson goes through examples live on the Impactpool Job Board. 
Take-aways from this video:
    • Always customize your application - it's worth more spending extra time on a few applications, than sending out lots of generic ones.
    • Don't attempt to customize towards the entire vacancy announcement.
    • Parts of a UN vacancy announcement (job ad) - and how to use them
