Phone Interview (Pre-deployment) questions

So you passed the SAAT / AMS (Assessment for mission service)!! Congratulations!! What's next?

After being approved in the SAAT / AMS, your name will be submitted via electronic facsimile to the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, in New York. Then according to your results and according to the policy of your Permanent Mission (in NY), they will place you in the roster of possible mission deployments.

For example, if you were approved for “unarmed English missions” you will have less options than if you were approved to “All (unarmed and armed) English Missions”.
Then, the Senior Staff of the peacekeeping operation will take a look in your EASP, to see if it matches with the requirements of the mission. For example, if the mission has focus on capacity building, they will give preference to Instructors, high rank officers, etc., as they will be responsible on transferring their knowledge to the host country. In the other hand, if the mission has focus on police operations (executive mandate), or protection of civilians, they will prefer younger officers with more patrolling and community policing experience.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? : You should not lie and put in your EASP what your specialty is. Senior Staff from mission will chose an Investigator with 15 years of experience rather than one police officer with 20 years of experience, but with one or two years of experience in each area. Remember, you will represent your country, and U.N. doesn’t need “generic police officers” who knows how a little of everything. They need specialized persons. If you are a good Instructor or an excellent community policing officer, put this in your EASP.
