World Bank Junior Professional Associates (JPA) Program for Young Graduates 2024

The World Bank Group Junior Professional Associate (JPA) program is a unique opportunity to gain entry-level professional experience and first-hand exposure to the challenges – and rewards – of international development.

 

Are you a recent graduate. Do you have passion for and commitment to helping others. Are you looking for a solid, two-year entry-level work experience in a multicultural environment. If so, you may be interested in the World Bank’s JPA program.
