  26. Question 4: Can I base my screening questions on either preferred qualifications or KSAs? • Yes • No, you can base screening questions only on preferred qualifications • No, you can base screening questions only on KSA’s

  27. Question 5: What’s the most efficient way to reuse questions from the UNMJobs Question Library? • Copy the questions on a separate page and re-enter them each time you need them • Record the reference number for each question; search the question library by this number • Search the question library using a keyword (e.g., “Access”) • All of the above

  28. For Further Information • Link to UNMJobs Department Resource Page • Link to Department Originator Guide
