Non-legal work experience with international organisationsWatch
I have no direct legal work experience (planning to start getting more over the next year or 2), however I have experience working in the financial sector and with the United Nations in private sector risk management and due diligence (and a lot of research, writing, stakeholder engagement etc).
My question is: does anyone know how City or MC law firms view experience at international organisations like the UN? Is it considered to be a factor that could set candidates apart?
In my circle, UN is a huge deal and always a factor in me securing interviews so curious if that is true in other fields like law.
You should be able to explain how the skills you gained at the UN are relevant to law in your applications, and are likely to get asked about what you were doing at the UN at interview.
