    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Exploration Summer Programs.

    I applied and interviewed for the position one week later. I had two rounds of phone interviews where they asked pretty basic questions about prior job experiences and personality to assess personal fit. It was a pain-free experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Exploration Summer Programs (New Haven, CT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    To apply, you must submit an online essay, resume, and complete course listing to support your interest in instructing content specific courses. If approved, you will be invited to one or more Skype interviews with administrators from the organization. The Skype interview is informal, conversational, and generally asks about your experiences with students and teaching. You will be asked to describe ideas for specific lessons, and the expectation is that you come up with an "explo-cized" activity idea. This means a hands-on, student centered activity that allows the student to explore content in an new and exciting way. After this Skype interview, you may be asked to interview with another administrator, or you may be offered a position within the week.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: In what ways do you mediate conflict?
      Q: What are some interesting and exciting activities you would like to implement into your lesson plan for the _____ course?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Exploration Summer Programs (Newton, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I first applied for the position online which takes a long amount of time because you have to apply to a large range of things you may potentially do while working there for the summer. I then had a phone interview with someone in the main office. After that there was a skype interview with one of the directors and then after that a third interview on the phone with someone else from the program. They called about the offer a few days later.
