Check out our video for a quick overview of the application process, and then read the full details below!
1. Select and Contact Your References.You will need to find three people to be your character references, to include in your application (you will need their email addresses). BEFORE applying, make sure you contact these folks and let them know that right after you submit your application, a link to the character reference form will be automatically emailed to them (make sure they check their spam folder!) We ask that your references submit this form within 5 days of you submitting your application.
· It is your responsibility to find three adults who are willing to serve as character references for you by completing an on-line form.
· References must meet the following requirements
1.the reference must be an ADULT
2.the reference must NOT be related to you (no family members)
3.the reference must be someone who knows you well (so that s/he can adequately evaluate you and complete the form)
· Examples of appropriate character references might include:
1.Employers, past or present (this may include people for whom you have provided babysitting, lawn/mowing service, etc.).
2.Teachers or school counselors
3.Other instructors or coaches
4.Neighbors or family friends who know you well
· HINT: Because it is your responsibility as the applicant to make sure we receive these references (and because we can't move forward with the application/hiring process until we have received them), make the process easier for your references. Let them know BEFORE you apply that the form will be coming. Remember, they're doing you a favor. Ask in advance if s/he would be willing to serve as your reference. Call or email to follow up, to ask if they've sent out your references… and remember to THANK them if and when they do!
2. Complete the Application for Employment
· Before filling out the application, you will answer several questions and your answers to those questions will direct you to the appropriate application.
