    Interview

    International and super professional. You must come prepared with true examples of your experiences to showcase your worth. They might ask you to also take an exam, it all depends on the role and your job ranking. Also, expect to be one of many who are competing since they have a lengthy but fair hiring process.

    I applied online. I interviewed at The World Bank.

    Submitted application via email after which I received a request for a phone interview to discuss strengths. The questions were more technical than I expected. Did not have a chance to discuss my skills. The interviewer asked me some questions about sampling and regression techniques. The next step was supposed to be a stata/R test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The World Bank (Washington, DC (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    You apply online and await for communication for the interview process.

    It quite literally took almost 6 months to receive any feedback on the opening. Unacceptable. Waste of applicant’s time and the World Bank’s since candidates can receive various offers during that 6 month waiting timeframe.
