We've Got Answers.
Q. How do I apply for a job?
A. Our application process is online. Click here to view our job openings. A link to apply is at the bottom of each job description.
Q. How do I apply for an internship?
A. Internships are posted on our Job Openings page like any other job. The timing varies: some departments have regular openings and accept applications year-round, while others only hire interns sporadically. If there is an application deadline, it will be listed in the posting.
Q. Do you have internships for high school students?
A. Not often. Most of our internships are professional-level training and experience geared towards college students. Some require that college-level credits be obtained simultaneously.
Q. I really love The Current! How do I apply for an internship there?
A. Thanks for the love! We'll be posting an internship for Summer 2013 in April. Sign up to receive our postings by email here.
You can also get involved by volunteering! Click here for more information.
Q. How do I know when a job has been filled?
A. In a perfect world, we'd send you an email. That's our goal and we're slowly working towards it. But please be patient while we get that system up and running. We will remove a job posting from our website when it is in the final stages of interviewing or when it has been filled.
Q. What's the best way to follow-up on my resume?
A. Here are a few suggestions:
1. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your inquiry.
2. Tweet @APMJobs.
3. If you know someone in the company, you may wish to ask them for a referral.
4. Phone calls are not the best way to follow up and if anyone gives you that advice, they have not been on the hiring end of a job opening recently! It's not that we're anti-social, we just hate endless voicemail tag. Please see the above suggestions for a speedier response from HR.
Q. How important are cover letters?
The field on our application for uploading your cover letter is *required*. That's because we actually read them. If you choose to upload your resume twice, or upload a one- or two-sentence note, it will not reflect well on your candidacy.
Conversely, a great cover letter will really impress us and your resume is bound to get a closer look. That's free advice, straight from the recruiter!
Q. May I submit my resume in person or by email, rather than through your online system?
A. We wouldn't recommend dropping off a paper resume. We track and forward resumes electronically, so we'd end up scanning it anyway.
If you are having difficulty with the online system or experiencing a glitch, you can email your resume and cover letter to email@example.com. You can also send audio files to that email.
Q. I have a question that has not been answered here. Where can I send it to?
A. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @APMJobs.
