Application Reader

Role:

LaunchX is hiring seasonal application readers to assist our executive team with the first review of applications for admission to LaunchX's summer 2019 program. The ideal candidate is an alum of the LaunchX summer program, demonstrates an understanding of company mission and values, is a reliable self-starter, and has strong attention-to-detail.

Application readers will enter into a nondisclosure agreement regarding the application process and any information on applicants. To avoid any potential conflicts of interest, the seasonal reader must not be an immediate family member of a student applying to LaunchX.

Commitment:

Each application reader will read, evaluate and summarize approximately 600 applications during the admissions cycle under the supervision of the operations manager. Every seasonal reader is required to attend a series of paid remote trainings to take place in mid-November. This training will acquaint the reader with our evaluation protocols that will be thoughtfully applied to every application.

The LaunchX summer program review process and length of appointment runs from early-December 2018 through April 2019. The seasonal reader is expected to read for 7-10 hours per week during this period. This should equal 30-40 applications. The heaviest volume of work typically occurs between December through March. Though the seasonal reader will work from home/off-campus, the person in this position will be expected to communicate regularly with the operations manager.

Logistical Details:

Training will take place virtually (via Google Hangouts) on two days in November before reading season officially begins in December.
