In this episode you will meet Antonia De Meo (Chief of Human Rights and Rule of Law Service at United Nations Support Mission in Libya, and Representative of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights).

1.What are the steps that a successful senior-level Rule of Law or Country Representative of the High Commissioner Office reach those levels, and even have two senior positions at the same time?

2. I come from the private sector; I have plenty of experience and relevant academic degree; I have tried applying but I don’t even get a callback, and nothing seems to work.

3. I am already in the sector but I don’t know how to advance to reach senior positions.

4. What is it like to devote your career to Human Rights and work on the most challenging duty stations


 *Listen to conversations with senior leaders in the sector, working at Headquarters, in hardship duty stations from different areas e.g. Recruitment at the UN Secretariat, Senior officers working with Migrants at refugee camps, etc.) telling you what to do to get where they are. All and much more is included in the Impactpool Fellowship.
