World Bank internships: When to apply, what to expect

By Rolf Rosenkranz22 July 2011

Internships are a great way to start a career with the World Bank. But, when is the best time to apply? What kind of work do interns do? What can they get out of their assignment - from skills to contacts to follow-up positions with the multilateral donor?

World Bank Senior Recruitment Officer Roberto Amorosino answers these questions in this excerpt from our 1-hour webinar “Ask the Recruiter: Jobs with the World Bank,” recorded June 29. 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.
