The United Nations seeks professional reference apart from supervisors. Applicants may include professors, thesis advisors, mentors, colleagues, peers, team members, former supervisees, collaborators, clients, stakeholders in their work, or other persons with whom they have had professional relationships. Applicants with managerial experience are encouraged to list past direct supervisees who could provide a perspective on their role as a manager. Applicants should not list personal references such as family and friends.
