Last month, Victoria Fernandes, head of strategic sourcing with the U.N. Population Fund, joined a Devex webinar to share her insights on landing a job with the United Nations. In addition to discussing current and upcoming hiring initiatives, Fernandes spoke about opportunities for professionals willing to work in hard-to-fill posts and shared tips on how candidates can best talk about their transferable skills and experience.

Following the webinar, Fernandes took some time to respond via email to your top questions on working with UNFPA.
