    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at IMF.

    Interview

    The hiring process is straightforward and divided into three stepts: 1) resume and cover letter review: for one position they receive hundreds of applicants so it is very competitive; 2) technical test administration: only those short-listed will be administered a general test to assess their knowledge and technical skils; 3) final interview (panel): communication skills, general knowledge, technical knowledge, past esperience are scrutinized. They want to see how you come across, how articulatte and knowledgeable you are.
