Start A Journey With The Charles Koch Institute
These are the stages of the candidate experience, from recruitment to a decision:
What is the selection process?
The typical selection process for educational programs consists of two parts, interviews with the Charles Koch Institute and interviews with partner organizations:
- Interviews with the Charles Koch Institute: The selection process begins with a review of an online application. Successful candidates will be invited to participate in one or two video interviews.
- Interviews with Partner Organizations: After successfully completing the Institute’s screening process, candidates will receive access to an online jobs portal, where they can apply to partner organizations’ open roles. It is only upon accepting a job offer with a partner organization that a candidate is officially admitted into an educational program.
What is included in the online application?
The application for program admission includes:
- Written responses regarding views on social, economic, or policy issues.
- Video response regarding interest and goals related to programs.
Here’s when we recommend submitting an application:
Green: Candidates will be among the first to have their applications reviewed, receive interview invitations, access the jobs portal, and apply to jobs with partner organizations.
Yellow: Candidates may apply, but there is a greater chance they may be waitlisted for the program or have fewer opportunities available to them in the jobs portal.
Red: Admission into the program is highly unlikely given that the program start date is fast approaching and there is limited time to secure a job offer from a partner organization.
