Jake Jarczynski, I/O Psychology, ‘17
United Nations 2016 Summer Intern
I learned about the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) summer internship through Baruch's Weissman Graduate Career Services portal, and quickly applied. They were quick in responding and I actually had a phone interview the same day. The UNFPA, is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. Since UNFPA started working in 1969, the number – and rate – of women dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth has been halved.
My specific role in the organization is within the Department of Human Resources and is essentially "internship coordinator." I conduct the recruitment, interviewing and on-boarding of interns, as well as keep them connected and engaged throughout their employment at UNFPA. I also work closely with the talent management team, and am currently assisting with a program that targets employee wellness across UNFPA offices.
