How hard is it to get a job at the World Bank or IMF?



im a finance masters from the US and want to get into the public sector in development banking or projects. i realize that these 2 employers are the best for the kind of exp im looking for. however im also aware that they’re tough to get into, but just wondering how to start and what kind of competition i mite be facing. any info on how to get a foot in the door is appreciated, even an internship is fine at this pt. a chance is all i need…esp during these times.

  1. HARD.

    At the least, you need to have a masters degree, which you already have. More importantly though, you need to have some policy or development experience.

    But connections is highly important as well. It is best to know someone from the inside, if only to clue you in if openings come up.
