7Job World What is JobWorld and how does it affect me? JobWorld is the way the Bank, IFC and MIGA are handling the creation and filling of job vacancies. It affords you as an applicant an on-line way of making known your interest in a particular job.2. Ok, I'm ready to apply for a job - where do I start?The "Applicant's Workbench" from the JobWorld's main Web page is the entry to all applications. Typically you will start your job application process by looking at the list of "open" jobs for job(s) you think you're qualified for.
8Job World Contd…..3. What is an "open" job? Can't I apply for a job at any time?JobWorld is a formal means of making public (advertising) a manager's need to fill a job requisition, i.e. job.

During this period the job is said to be "open" and one can submit his or her application for the job. Prior to the open date the particulars of the job have not been finalized and thus the job is not ready for advertising. After the end of the open period the next stage of the job fulfillment process must be started which typical does not have any provision for accepting additional applications.4. What are these "Job Categories"? I thought the Bank was promoting the "one-staff" concept which seems a bit counter to placing people in "Categories".The "Job Categories" are a historical way of grouping the several hundred jobs into more manageable "chunks". People are encouraged to apply for all jobs that they are at least reasonably qualified for as

What is the next step?Assuming you’ve selected the job from the list, scroll down until you see the Apply for this Job “button”. Click on the button to enter your application. The JobWorld Login screen will pop-up asking you for your id and password, which you must successfully enter before proceeding.Website:Website Link:To access Job World:Click into Resources for:Click into Job SeekersClick into Open Positions
