During this time, they work under the supervision of an experienced economist to carry out a research project and prepare a paper. Their paper may be presented to staff in the department at the end of their assignment, and papers of high standard may be published internally. The internship program is intended to make clear the exceptional opportunities, challenges, and rewards of a career at the IMF.
