WBG YPP Application Review

In the first round of the World Bank Group YPP selection process, you must fill out an online application form and send documents (Curriculum Vitae; Short summaries of your doctorate dissertation and/or Master’s thesis; Application essay). 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.

At OpenIGO, we have analyzed documents from dozens of WBG YPP candidates and know precisely what is required for your application to stand out from the thousands of others received by the WBG YPP team every year. It is important to highlight that this service is confidential and your files will be deleted from our systems when the service has been completed.

A review of your documents will be carried out in two stages:

  1. Proofreading – highly qualified native English proofreaders will check your writing, formatting, correct errors and suggest improvements;
  2. 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 World Bank YPP, offering feedback for improvement. The fit of your documents with the World Bank YPP policies and strategies will be evaluated. However, we also highlight that our team will not write your essay or prepare any other documents for you. Our aim is to enhance your application. The merit of passing the selection process is all yours.

Why is it worth buying an application review?

  • It is a service of an extremely high quality and care. A professor, with extensive knowledge of the World Bank Group 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 WBG 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!

Our application review services will really enhance your application!

WBG YPP Mock Interview

The World Bank Group Young Professional Program (YPP) selection cycle includes an interview phase, whose main aim is to find out more about the candidate, and analyze their knowledge, competences and experience.

It is widely understood and disseminated by the World Bank that the WBG YPP interview model is the behavioral event interview (BEI) but, in fact, it is mixed, combining this model with others: the traditional interview and the brain teaser interview (or puzzle interview).

Having a mock interview with a professional who has extensive experience and knowledge of the World Bank Group YPP interview model will help you be better prepared for this phase, greatly increasing your chances of being selected for the desired vacancy. The WBG YPP mock interviews are held via Skype (preferably), WhatsApp, Facetime or Hangouts, conducted by an interview specialist and last around 60 minutes.

If you have arrived at this point in the selection process, you cannot afford to miss the opportunity for additional qualification. The value invested is nothing compared to the energy you have invested up until now, and with the benefits you will obtain when you are approved!

Why is it worth buying the mock interview?

  • On average, the interviewer (a professor with a PhD who is a specialist in the WBG YPP) spends approximately two hours reading all your documents and preparing a script to be used in your interview, plus around one hour in a mock interview with you.
  • It is extremely well evaluated by those who bought it. 100% of the mock interview clients evaluate the mock interview as 5/5.
  • Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

World Bank YPP Review

We have received a wide range of testimonials about our services. We have provided some of these below:

“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.”
