As we strive to X.C.C.L. we seek to place only the best candidates into the program, thus a rigorous interview process is in place:
Once the candidate as submitted both a resume with a letter of interest and an online application, candidates can expect the interview process to take 1-1.5 months.

  1. The initial interview is a video interview that is 10 minutes in length and is submitted by the candidate. The video will be made to meet criteria set by the hiring team. If an applicant is chosen for an interview, he/she will be contacted with the criteria for the video interview. 
  2. The 2nd step in the interview process is an in person interview. Candidates can expect to interview with the Operator, Howe, Executive Leadership Team, and Human Resource Director. This interview is possibly the most detailed interview and will be set as 2 interviews, both taking 2 hours with a break for a meal at Chick-fil-A. Once an interview date has been agreed upon, the candidate's career services department at his/her college or university will be notified to provide an excused absence from studies.
  3. The final step in the interview process is a face to face interview with the Operator and Executive Leadership team, current X.C.C.L participants and Operations Directors from Center of the Universe and Virginia Center. This interview day will, like the first, be 4 hours in length with a total of 3 interviews. The candidate will be invited to a lunch with members of the interviewing team. During this interview, candidates should expect to discuss a Myers Briggs assessment results and take part in hands on experiential interviews. 

Applicants can expect to receive feedback from their application within 2 weeks.
