JobNet is a consolidated listing of the different positions advertised in
Organizations that comprise the
United Nations Common System
JobNet is an initiative of the Information Technology (IT) Unit in ICSC. The ICSC IT unit
collaborated with different organizations to try and standardize the jobs publishing methods so we could consolidate all UN Common System jobs into a single repository.
JobNet has been in operation since March 2013. The ICSC-IT unit makes continuous efforts to maintain and monitor the site on regular basis.
How does JobNet work?
The IT unit created a software solution that gathers job data feeds (which can be HTML or XML-based) published on different organizationsal sites. After reading the information the software parses, validates and creates a dataset for the jobs.
Various business rules are applied to standardize this dataset. (Standard date formatting, mapping various duty stations names and variations of job level). The IT team makes a continous effort to monitor and take corrective action on errors occuring due to changes in data feed urls and tags within the feeds.
The IT unit is in charge of the daily operation and maintenance of this site.
