We’re excited that you’re interested in joining the staff of Athletes in Action! Here’s a detailed overview of the application process. It will save you time if read this entire page BEFORE you begin your application.
1. First, read the additional application information that is specific to your potential employment category: full-time, intern, STINT or part-time. Please note: full-time applicants applying without their spouse under the new "Married with Non-Staff Spouse" category must be familiar with all of the specifics of this category and submit a pre-application questionnaire before completing an application (see the full-time applicant page for more information). Part-time applicants must also first submit a part-time pre-application questionnaire before completing an application (see the part-time applicant page for more information).
2. Make sure you know your application deadline and what that deadline includes (online application submitted, all references returned). SUBMIT well before the deadline. Deadlines are listed in the additional information pages for your employment category. Also, make sure you have looked at the debt limits for coming on as full time, intern or Stint PRIOR to applying as this may impact you in some way. For more information click here.
4. Find out what references you will need:
· Full-time applicants: A total of six references are needed - a Cru/AIA staff member, spiritual leader, pastor, employer or business associate, peer and friend. If you do not personally know a Cru/AIA staff member, you may substitute that reference with an additional spiritual leader reference.
· Intern, Stint, Part-time applicants: A total of four references are needed - a Cru/AIA Staff Member, spiritual leader, peer and friend). If you do not personally know a Cru/AIA staff member, you may substitute that reference with an additional spiritual leader reference.
Please do not use any family members, boyfriends, spouses etc as references. Within the online application once you enter your reference information you will send out the reference request to each person as per the instruction sheet.
Please note: According to Cru policy, non-U.S. citizens applying for employment (regardless of employment category) must do so within their own country. If this applies to you, we ask that you contact the Cru or AIA national office within your country for more information.
