MKE operates a Young Professionals scheme, recruiting 3-4 young international graduates a year. The YPs, who are based either in Yangon and/or Hanoi, work on modest incomes for work experience. They quickly experience the steep learning-curve of international development consultancy and start to build a strong CV. The understanding is that Dr. McCarty, MKE Chief Economist, will plug them into all sorts of work and networks, and they can ask to be part of, or "chase", particular projects.
