Internships at International Financial Institutions
Internships are viewed as a valuable asset for subsequent employment despite the fact that some IFIsInternational Financial Institutions have strict policies regarding subsequent employment, such as a 6-month 'cooling-off' period.
Most IFIs require interns to be enrolled in their academic studies (Bachelor, Master, or PhD depending on the organisation) at the time of application. They should further be fluent in at least one of the institution's working languages. Additional languages and previous work experience may be an asset.
