Selection Process

Upon review of your application, if you meet the qualification requirements and have not taken the assessment during the past 12 months, you will receive a link via email to take the assessment, which you will have 10 days to complete. After successfully completing the assessment, you will be invited to a preliminary interview. Based on the outcome of your interview, you will be placed in a “pipeline” of active candidates.

When you are in the pipeline of active candidates, your application will remain active for at least six months if you retain valid visa status in the U.S. Your application will be available to hiring managers for vacant positions throughout the Fund, and you may be invited to interviews for specific positions. Should you be selected for one of the positions, you will be offered a contractual appointment. Contractual appointments at the IMF are renewable for up to four years of cumulative contractual service, pending the incumbent’s performance, budget availability, and continuous business need. If you are offered a contractual appointment, you will have the opportunity to learn Fund technology and processes, potentially adding competitiveness should you be interested in applying for future term positions.

You must reside in the local Washington, D.C. area on a valid U.S. visa status and successfully complete the online assessment to be considered for any administrative coordinator positions at the IMF.
