Be ready to move: World Bank decentralization and hiring

More World Bank staff are moving into the field as part of the multilateral donor’s efforts to decentralize operations. For applicants, that means: Be ready to move as well.

In this fourth edition of the popular Devex Career Webinar Series, Amorosino discusses World Bank hiring priorities, what makes an ideal job candidate, how to transition from the private sector, and many other burning questions posed directly by job seekers.
