On October 28th, the United Nations Outreach Program on Human Resources (Wuhan) came to its last stop in Wuhan University.

The United Nations Outreach Program on Human Resources was hosted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the People’s Republic of China, and organized by WHU in the Wuhan region.

On Saturday morning, the main hall of the Humanities Building of WHU witnessed the great enthusiasm of students and teachers in the Wuhan region. They are representatives from Wuhan University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan University of Technology, Central China Normal University, Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, China University of Geosciences, Huazhong Agricultural University, South-Central University for Nationalities, Wuhan University of Science and Technology, and Hubei University.

Li Xiaoshu, deputy director of the Office of International Affairs of WHU, hosted the meeting. Having extended a warm welcome to all officials, guests and audiences, he then introduced four members of the UN delegation, two officials from the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of China, and the leaders of WHU present at the meeting.

Professor Zhao Xuemei, deputy secretary of the CPC committee, addressed the audience, and expressed her sincere hope of reaching an enhanced level of interaction in cultivating talents between WHU and international organizations like the UN.

Ms. Yan Huiying, deputy division chief of the department of international cooperation at the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of China, gave a speech, and then listed efforts that the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security made in facilitating access to the UN for young talents, and invited more young people to contribute their part for the benefits of all human beings by working in the UN.

The UN outreach team is composed of four experienced HR officials and experts. They are from the UN Secretariat, UN Development Program, UN Population Fund and UN Volunteer respectively. During the outreach program, they shared with the audience the spirit of the UN, their personal working experience of what it was like to work in the UN, and a series of vivid presentations about the organizations themselves.

The four officials also gave a detailed elaboration on what kind of job you can get at the UN, the requirements for you to become a UN staff, how to write an application, and how to go for an interview.

Students actively raised questions during the Q&A session. The UN officials’ handing out gifts also drove the atmosphere to a feverish pitch. After the meeting, they stayed and patiently answered questions one by one. It shows the UN’s strong interest and sincerity in recruiting young Chinese professionals.

As was shown in the video at the beginning of the presentation, UNICEF is doing its best to “make a difference [for] every child”, and so are the other UN organs. Such is the UN spirit—to care for the disadvantaged, to promote international cooperation, and to create and maintain international order. Now they are looking for people who wants to contribute their talent to serving humanity.

The UN’s calling is echoed. WHU and the UN are seeking further cooperation in cultivating international talent.
