Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at The World Bank (Washington, DC) in September 2011.

Interview

This was a very long interview process. I contacted one department through an employee contact of mine and was given the first 1:1 interview. Then months later the second interview arrived and again it took a month before the last panel interview was held. After that, it took only a few days before I was offered the position.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

In contrast to what I had heard from other STCs, there was not much negotiation over the contract.
