  • Hey! Very informative presentation. I have applied to several world bank intern positions but I never seem to hear back. I majored in International Relations, and can speak Hindi and Urdu fluently. Could you tell me what the requirement is or how can i stand out from other resumes. It would also be great if you could provide us with some names/email of people who are in charge of interns at WB. Thank you so much for the hep.

  • Hi Stefani & Omnes - To answer some of your questions:
    1. My internship was for June-July, so it did not conflict with my school schedule.
    2. Tips: It's hard to say... When I was there, there were 4 interns and we all did very different work, so we had different qualifications. For me, it was the language fluency and background in economics, I think.
    3. Finding accommodations in the DC area is not easy. I was fortunate to have a second cousin in Maryland that I stayed with for the summer, and commuted in on bus, metro, and foot (over an hour each way). If you get the internship, ask advice of people at the Bank.
    4. I worked 40 hours per week, but internships can vary.
