Global Engagement Summit 2018-2019 Staff Application
Thank you for applying to the Global Engagement Summit. We cannot wait to meet you in person! Please submit your application and sign up for an interview before Saturday, October 6 at 11:59PM CST. Late and incomplete (i.e. submitting an application but not signing up for an interview) submissions will NOT be considered.

Below are descriptions of the teams that are recruiting new staff members. Read them carefully before you fill out the application and make sure to sign up for an interview time.

IMPORTANT #1: GES has all-staff meetings every Tuesday at 9pm. Beyond that, committees usually meet at least once weekly outside of these meetings. Please consider your other time commitments before applying.

IMPORTANT #2: The application is very short and is mostly to get your basic information. Your 20-minute interview will be more important. The interviews are casual. Please be comfortable and most importantly, be yourself! We are so excited to get to know you.

IMPORTANT #3: Interviews will be conducted only from October 7-12, and your application MUST be submitted prior to your interview. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you complete this application prior to the October 5 deadline, so that you can sign up for interview slots while they are still open.
