Helping Your Application Standout

A large volume of application packages are received some by search engine Bots and others that are either incomplete or do not meet the qualification requirements.  To help assure that your application package stands out from the noise and to help assure all relevant requested information is readily accessible please be mindful of the following suggestions.

  • Unofficial, student academic history, or advising transcript documents will suffice at this preliminary stage.  Where possible please include all documents electronically in one submission.  If adding a missing document at a later date, to assure a complete file, please include all previous documents in the second submission.  Important Note:  For A&P candidates transcripts are required.  Applications without transcript information will not be considered.
  • Please denote prominently on your resume, your (1) general time and (2) location availability (i.e. Fall/Spring Daytime Availability Marple & Downingtown, Summer Evenings Only [6pm on] SEC or UD, etc.)
  • Preliminary staffing starts well before the start of the semester.  Therefore it is recommended to have your application package submitted in a timely manner.  For Fall courses the process starts the preceding March/April, for Spring in October, and Summer in February.  Application materials are generally retained for one year.
