WIMUN New York HS offers great opportunities for every student to try life as a diplomat regardless of what career path you decide to follow. If you find yourself wanting to translate WIMUN into a real job, read on to find out more...

 

  • United Nations & UN agencies

    • If you love debating UN agenda topics at WIMUN, consider a career at the United Nations or even WFUNA! The United Nations has opportunities for a range of experience levels, with the earliest opportunities including internships for college students and the Young Professionals Programme for recent college graduates. After participating in WIMUN New York HS, you will be better prepared for what to expect at the UN!

  • Foreign Service

    • If you want a greater focus on your home nation’s policy, the foreign service may be a good fit for you! Diplomats in the foreign service are stationed in embassies around the world and work to advance their nation's interests allowing you to put into action the diplomatic skills you learn at WIMUN. 

  • NGOs and NPOs

    • Are you passionate about a specific cause, a job at a non-governmental organization (NGO) or non-profit organization (NPO) could be the right fit for you! These organizations work to create change for a specific cause but are independent from the government. 

  • International Service

    • Consider giving back to the community with international service! WIMUN launched their first Human Rights Council Simulation in Geneva and it will be making a return in New York! The HRC gives you insight into the humanitarian aid needed in many crises, and combined with Act2Impact you will be able to apply your WIMUN skills in governments or NGOs in a meaningful way.

  • Research

    • If you enjoy researching your country’s policies in preparation for WIMUN, then a career in research is for you! These careers are available with governments, universities, think tanks, and media organizations. Your research could make a big impact on government policy! Many jobs in this field require a master's degree or PhD and a specialization in a subject area, so be prepared for several years in school. However, if you are up for the challenge, it can certainly be a very rewarding career.

  • International business

    • Are you more drawn to the private sector? Interested in working for a Fortune 500 company? A career in international business may be a good fit for you! Work in the financial markets, international trade, or for a multinational company. Travelling to WIMUN NY HS gives you a taste of what it’s like to meet colleagues or clients worldwide (plus you can sightsee)!
