LaunchX is hiring full-time, on-site seasonal application readers to assist our executive team with the first review of applications for admission to the LaunchX Summer Program. The ideal candidate demonstrates an understanding of the company mission and values, is a reliable self-starter, and possesses a strong attention to detail. He / she has worked with adolescents before and understands how their personal characteristics fit into the entrepreneurial mindset.
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 or friend to a student applying to LaunchX.
Each application reader will read, evaluate and summarize approximately 600 applications during the admissions cycle, which includes reviewing components of application videos, activities, transcripts, and more. This requires following a review rubric and making both objective and subjective judgments of the applicant fit with the LaunchX Summer Program on several dimensions of entrepreneurial propensity. Each seasonal reader is required to attend a series of trainings which will acquaint the reader with our evaluation protocols that are thoughtfully applied to every application, and must be diligent about time management to ensure the applicant review process stays on track.
The LaunchX Summer Program review process and length of appointment runs from December through April.
