International organizations visual
Friday, April 23, 2021, 9:00 am – 11:00 am

With 57 member states from across Europe, Central Asia, and North America, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world's largest regional security organization. The OSCE addresses issues that have an impact on common security, including arms control, terrorism, good governance, energy security, human trafficking, democratization, media freedom and national minorities.

In this two-hour interactive webinar, recruitment representatives of the OSCE will guide you through the process of preparing, practicing, and evaluating competency-based interviews with the OSCE.

During this session you will learn more about: 

  • The value of gaining professional experience through the OSCE
  • Best practices for approaching competency-based interviews
  • Using the STAR method to ace your interview with the OSCE

The session includes individual work and peer conversation, so be ready to interact!

Vacancies at OSCE are open for competition only amongst nationals of its 57 participating States. However, many of the strategies shared during this session will also be relevant if you are considering applying to other international organizations.
