EXPLO | Faculty Application Information Guide

Applying to EXPLO: Common Questions 

How will I be contacted regarding my application? All correspondence regarding your application is sent via email. It is important that you regularly check your inbox (and spam folder) for important updates. Untimely communication on your part could result in your application being rejected. Why was I asked to interview for my second- or third-choice program?  In the initial application, you will rank which program(s) you are most interested in working with. While the Faculty Recruitment Team will note your preferences when reviewing your application, there may not be a position available at your first-choice program that matches your skills and experiences. In that case, you may be asked to interview for your second- or third-choice program. For example, you might indicate that EXPLO Boston is your first-choice program, but you may find yourself being interviewed by your third-choice program if they have a greater need for the positions to which you’ve applied, or if EXPLO Boston doesn’t have any available positions that match your interests and abilities. How much detail should I include in the qualifications listed on my initial application?  We need enough detail to understand the scope and context of your qualifications; however, we don’t need an exhaustive description of any single experience. For example, if you’re writing about your qualifications for the AV Coordinator role, you should describe any past AV work experience, including the specific responsibilities you carried out that would prepare you to serve as an EXPLO AV Coordinator. Often, one or two well-written paragraphs is enough to adequately describe your qualifications for a given position or interest. Why was I asked to complete a second interview? After completing an initial interview with one of our three programs (EXPLO Boston, EXPLO New York, or EXPLO Chicago), you may be asked to conduct a second interview with another member of the Faculty Recruitment Team. This is either to expand on the conversation from the initial interview, or to discuss an alternate position at another EXPLO program. (For example, you may interview first with EXPLO Chicago, and then with EXPLO New York.) Second interviews are usually fairly short (15-20 minutes), and designed to focus in on a set of questions that are more specific than those in the initial interview.
