5.The Interview
Fellowship Interviews
Initial interviews with Finalists will take place during March and April 2012. Finalists inIsrael will be interviewed in person; those abroad will be interviewed telephonically or viathe internet.Those selected as Fellows will be notified by the end of May 2012.Once you have accepted the Fellowship, we no longer look at other candidates. As such,Fellowship drop-outs (i.e. people who have accepted the Fellowship but leave beforecompleting the Fellowship year) deprive others of the Fellowship.
Placement Interviews
Once the Fellows have been selected, they will then be invited for interviews with one ormore potential placement organizations. Initial placement interviews need not be in personshould the Fellow still be abroad (i.e. they can be done telephonically or via the internet).However,
all Fellows have to be in Israel by the beginning of August – at the latest – forfinal-round interviews with potential placement agencies. If the fellow is interviewing for agovernment position, then s/he has to be in Israel by the end of June at the latest.
Pleasetake this into consideration when making summer plans before the Fellowship year. Failureto comply may result in the forfeiture of the Fellowship.
6.The Fellowship Year
The Fellowship year begins the first week in September 2012 and concludes at the end of August 2013. Please take this into consideration when making summer plans before theFellowship year.The Fellowship is full-time, i.e. 9:00am-5:00pm (or later) Sunday through Thursday.Fellows are not allowed to have other jobs or study while completing the Fellowship; ourprevious experience has shown that this quickly becomes unworkable.
