Each year, major development banks offer opportunities specifically to young professionals. These temporary jobs can serve as a great career stepping stone for those who already have a bit of experience under their belts. The selection process is highly competitive, but successful candidates may just end up with permanent positions.
Those applying for young professionals programs must be fluent in English and have working knowledge of another language that is relevant to the institution’s work. At the Inter-American Development Bank, fluency in Spanish is compulsory, for instance.
