NGO work reward is good. However, they only select those already working with them or those with UN experience. This I can tell you for free. Very difficult to enter except through recommendation by well connected insider. Otherwise, the post is usually filled by those working in the organization already but may be in different department but wants to switch to another department.

10yrs experience? Even president of America doesn't need upto 10yrs experience in public / private sector before becoming president so how come common contract admin need 10 yrs experience.

But by the end of it someone without even upto 2yrs experience will be giving the job
