Extended Term Consultant Interview
I applied online – interviewed at The World Bank.
Was shortlisted for a consultant position. Could choose phone, skype or in-person interview - I had the latter, with a three-member panel. Very pleasant experience, lasted less than an hour, lots of behavioral type questions, and the usual questions regarding past experience and interests.

Extended Term Consultant InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at The World Bank in May 2011.
I was emailed to have an interview about 2 weeks after the application. There were two interviewers (one was the direct of the branch and the other was the direct boss of the successful applicant). They asked more on projects I participated (They seemed to try to find the relevance of my previous experience to their projects) rather than the general questions on me.
