With the number of MUNers rising and the best positions
being highly contested, a Model UN CV/Resume could help in your conference
Not all conferences ask for a CV, but send it even if they do require one, as it shows professionalism from your side and create a good impression to the Secretariat. Those conferences that request a MUN CV they might also require a small motivation letter.
When considering applicants to positions, the Secretariat look for:
- Experience– The more experienced a delegate is, the more likely will he/she get their first choice. It is good to add in the CV what conferences you attended, when and where it was, committees, positions and any extra information.
- Legitimacy– Often, the Secretariat looks if the applicant is legit. Every conference receives many applications of people wanting visas and for other reasons. Make sure you also send your linkedin and MUNPlanet account link so they know more about you.
Language Skills– If the conference is in English, the Secretariat will hesitate giving a high position to some whose English skills are limited.
If one is heading a delegation or is the president of a MUN Club– Secretariats often take political choices, for example, if the applicant is the head of MUN club or heading a delegation, they will be willing to give the person a good position to make sure they end up coming.
Enrolled in a School/University– That is important, as many conferences only accept students.
Additional skills– The Secretariat also looks if the applicant has outside experience that can contribute to the conference.
When creating a Model UN CV for the next application, remember this information and make sure you add everything.
