The African Development Bank Young Professionals Programme (better known as the AfDB YPP) is an annual initiative focused on the selection and recruitment of distinguished and highly qualified young professionals from different parts of the world. Every year, about 8.000 – 10.000 candidates, from AfDB member countries, apply for a chance to work as an international civil servant with the Bank. The applicants selected are invited to take part in a professional development program, so that they can start a successful career with the organization. This is a highly competitive selection process!
In the first round of the African Development Bank YPP selection process, you must fill out an online application form and send documents through the system. These documents will be analyzed not only in the first round, but in all of the others, and are decisive for your success in this competitive selection process. These documents must show that you have the technical knowledge and skills desired by the Bank; they should be well structured and contain no grammar, spelling or punctuation mistakes.
Therefore, it is of fundamental importance that your documents are carefully reviewed. This is exactly what our award-winning team will do for you. Our African Development Bank YPP application review service includes a review of the following documents:
1) Curriculum Vitae
2) Cover Letter
3) Application essay +thesis summary (when applicable)
A review of each of these documents 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 professors with vast experience at intergovernmental organizations will carry out a technical review of the documents that you submit to the AfDB YPP, offering feedback for improvement. The fit of your documents with the AfDB YPP policies and strategies will be evaluated.
