If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you.

For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children’s survival, protection and development. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

Background:

The United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda in September 2015. At this event, top leaders of Viet Nam affirmed its commitment to mobilizing resources and contribution from all ministries, sectors, localities, organizations, communities and people to successfully implement the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In fulfilling the commitment, in May 2017, the Government of Viet Nam issued the National Action Plan (NAP) with specific tasks to implement the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

In cooperation with other stakeholders, the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) is the focal point for the development of Viet Nam’s National Voluntary Review (VNR) of SDGs implementation which will be represented at the 2018 High Level Political Forum (HLPF) in July, New York. The review is part of the evaluation and monitoring mechanism of the Agenda 2030 implementation encouraged by the UN. The main objectives of the VNR are to share the experience, success, challenges and practices in relation to the achievement of the Agenda 2030’s goals. All line ministries, related agencies, national and international organizations, and other stakeholders have been involved in the VNR process in order to produce a comprehensive and thorough review of how Viet Nam has been implementing SDGs, taking stock of achievements, forecasting challenges, and recommending ways forward to ensure that no Vietnamese is left behind in the Agenda 2030.

Viet Nam’s presentation at HLPF will include a video clip of 3 to 5 minutes on key messages of the Agenda 2030 implementation process in Viet Nam. The Ministry of Planning and Investment (Viet Nam Agenda 21 Office-VA21, Department of Science, Education, Natural Resources and Environment- DSENRE) and the UN in Viet Nam (represented by UNICEF) will develop this video clip with technical assistance provided by a communications consultant. The video clip is expected to deliver the messages in an effective way such as using relevant images, footages, quotations, infographics with suitable music to target audience.

    JOB INTERVIEW
    Tipical Questions
    “What are your salary requirements?” “What employers are really asking is, ‘Do you have realistic expectations when it comes to salary? Are we on the same page or are you going to want way more than we can give? Are you flexible on this point or is your expectation set in stone?’” Sutton Fell says. Try to avoid answering this question in the first interview because you may shortchange yourself by doing so, Teach says. Tell the hiring manager that if you are seriously being considered, you could give them a salary range–but if possible, let them make the first offer. Study websites like Salary.com and Glassdoor.com to get an idea of what the position should pay. “Don’t necessarily accept their first offer,” he adds. “There may be room to negotiate.” When it is time to give a number, be sure to take your experience and education levels into consideration, Sutton Fell says. “Also, your geographic region, since salary varies by location.” Speak in ranges when giving figures, and mention that you are flexible in this area and that you’re open to benefits, as well. “Be brief and to the point, and be comfortable with the silence that may come after.”
    Questions to ask
    What skills and experiences would make an ideal candidate? This is a great open-ended question that will have the interviewer put his or her cards on the table and state exactly what the employer is looking for. If the interviewer mentions something you didn’t cover yet, now is your chance.
