Advice for Applicants

Think critically about your fit with roles and regions

  • Does this role fit with your previous experiences and future goals?
  • Do the details of the job (start date, title, hours, duties, location and salary) align with your expectations?
  • Have you researched the regions you are applying to and what makes them unique?

Prepare any materials you may need

  • Is your resume in a format that can easily be opened by others (PDF preferred)?
  • Have you appropriately named your cover letter, if you are applying to a non-instructional role (e.g. “First Name.Last Name.Cover Letter”).
  • Have you proofread your materials to ensure they are specific to the role and region to which you are applying?  
  • Do you have current and/or former supervisors prepared to serve as a reference?
  • Will you be able to provide examples of your work if asked to move forward in the interview process?

Considerations for the selection process

  • Each region will request different materials for your process; you may want to follow-up with the regions you have applied to about any specific materials they would request if you move forward (student work, teaching video, etc.)
  • Please keep in mind that while you may ask for feedback, not all of our regions provide feedback for applicants at all stages of the process.
