What happens after I submit an application form?

This depends on the type of role you’re interested in. After you press submit, the page will display information about what happens next, and you’ll be sent an automated confirmation message.

For roles which have a lot of positions available (e.g. a volunteer pool, like translation or tag wrangling): Volunteers & Recruiting will send on applications to the chair of the relevant committee and/or to the leads of the volunteer pools. The chair will then interview prospective applicants to see if they’d be a good fit. We’ll let everyone know the results of their application as soon as we can.

For roles which are only looking for a specific number of people (e.g. a staff role): Volunteers & Recruiting will save everyone’s applications and send them to the relevant chair at the end of the recruitment period. The chair will then interview prospective applicants to find the person who best fits the open roles. We’ll let everyone know the results of their application as soon as we can.
