EXPLO | Faculty Application Information Guide

Who should I ask to be a reference?  We ask that you submit professional references—such as teachers, professors, job or volunteer supervisors—who can speak to your potential to thrive as an EXPLO staff member. If you’ve had limited work experience, we will also accept references from mentors, advisors, or religious leaders. Examples of references we would ​ not​ accept include personal references such as parents, friends, or peers. Do you sponsor visas for international staff members who are hired to work at EXPLO?  While EXPLO does not directly sponsor visas, there are a couple of options for international staff members to obtain work authorization for summer employment in the United States. International staff members enrolled in a college or university in the United States are ​ strongly​ encouraged to seek sponsorship through their school by applying for CPT or OPT; this is usually the quickest and most affordable option. International staff members who are not enrolled in a college or university in the United States will be connected with a partner organization, who guides each staff member through the full J-1 visa application process. When will I receive a final decision?  Applicants are either accepted, rejected, or placed on a waitlist. While an applicant may be rejected or placed on a waitlist at any stage in the application process, successful candidates typically complete all four stages of the EXPLO application before receiving a job offer. If an applicant reaches the interview stage, they will typically receive a final hiring decision within 2-3 weeks after their interview. (Please note that exceptions to this timeline do occur; when this is the case, the Faculty Recruitment Team will inform the applicant of when they can expect to receive a final hiring decision.)
