All interviews are conducted by telephone one on one with an NCCC staff member.
The questions will focus on things that will help us determine your interest and willingness to serve in a residential, team-based service program, flexibility and adaptability, collaboration and accountability and your personal goals. You can prepare for the interview by finding out as much as possible about the NCCC program. You should respond to the interview questions sincerely and honestly.
The applicant is notified of the status of their interview within three to four weeks at minimum after completing the interview.
An interview generally lasts between 30 to 45 minutes. The timing depends on how you respond to the questions.
This is a random selection process ultimately based on when a spot becomes available or if a member declines a position. Individuals assigned to the waitlist will be randomly selected and placed as spots become available.
