IFC YPP - Application Review

Generally, in the first round of the IFC Young Professionals Program selection process, you must fill out an online application form and send documents (Curriculum Vitae/Resume, Essay, etc.). These documents are decisive for your success in this competitive selection process! Therefore, it is of fundamental importance that they are carefully reviewed. This is exactly what our award-winning team will do for you.

Our professionals, specialized in the IFC YPP, will carry out proofreading and a technical review of your CV, Essay and other documents (when required by the organization), enormously increasing your chances of succeeding in the first screening round.

The review will be carried out in two stages:

Proofreading – highly qualified native English proofreaders will check your writing, formatting, correct errors and suggest improvements;

Technical review – a team formed of PhD professionals with vast experience at the Asian Development Bank will carry out a technical review of the documents that you submit to the IFC YPP, offering feedback for improvement.

 Why is it worth buying an application review?

  • It is a service of extremely high quality and care. A professor, with extensive knowledge of the IFC YPP,  carries out a technical review that, on average, takes 3.5 hours. In addition, a proofreader spends an additional hour checking your documents.
  • These documents are evaluated in all the different rounds of the IFC YPP selection process. If you really want a strong application, it is essential that you prepare your documents with extreme care.
  • Our service is extremely well evaluated by those who have bought it.
  • Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

“The World Bank YPP selection process is arduous, emotional and long! So, do yourself a service and invest in the wonderful services provided by OpenIGO. Their ebook is extremely informative and a very easy read. Using it, I was able to put forth a strong application and made it all the way through to the interview in this very competitive selection process. The book helps you to familiarise yourself with the WBG, and guides you to be able to write the strongest essay, CV and dissertation abstracts possible, given its chapters dedicated to them. Having made it so far with their help, I signed on to the mock interview service, and likewise, was not disappointed! Getting stuck on the first question the interviewers asked me helped me to realise that I had not focused enough on the basics, and with this knowledge, I prepped more efficiently for the final few days before and I passed! Thanks to OpenIGO. To all those who will embark on this journey, invest well!”

“Great service! The mock interview and book significantly improved my performance at the interview”

“Very happy I heard about OpenIGO during my application proces, even though it was only once I started preparing for the interview/assessment stage. I doubted at first because of the cost, but I’m extremely happy I made the investment, because both the ebook and mock interview proved very useful. The mock interview was with two people who took almost 1,5 hours AND they came prepared, which is much more than the 40 mins I expected. Thanks a lot!”

“The mock interview was really useful. Particularly John Tude gave many advice which really help me to be more confident”.

“Definitely worth it. As someone who went in without a clear idea of what would be expected, the ebook and mock interview were incredibly informative. I particularly appreciated the feedback at the end”.

“The application review service was essential for me to go on to the next rounds and be interviewed by the YPP team.  It’s true I was not selected this time, but OpenIGO really helped me reach where I did in this competitive selection. Thank you to the OpenIGO team.”
