What is the application for admission process?
The typical selection process consists of two parts, screening and hiring:
- The screening process starts with a review of your online application for admission. Qualified applicants then participate in phone interviews and potentially an in-person interview with the Institute. After completing the Institute’s screening process and interviews, candidates move to the hiring stage of the application for admission process.
- During the hiring stage of the application for admission process, candidates are connected to open roles at our partner organizations. At this point, candidates interview for specific jobs with hiring managers at partner organizations. Successful candidates will receive job offers during this stage.
If you are selected and offered a job by a partner organization and accept the offer, you are then officially admitted to the Liberty@Work program.
