THE APPLICATION PROCESS
15th of June
Via a google form, the community will have the opportunity to nominate individuals for a DCA position. Every person suggested over 5 times will get an email from us prompting them to apply. To clarify: being nominated does not guarantee acceptance, and not having been nominated does not mean you cannot submit an application or that your application will be declined. This is merely a tool to nudge people who the community thinks would be good additions to the team.
18th of June
The application form will be released. Interested applicants must download and fill in the form, before sending it alongside a debating and judging CV, and a list of past motions they have set, by the 8th of July at 23:59 Madrid time. The application form is one of the main ways in which we gain insight into our applicants, so we encourage candidates to fill it in carefully and take appropriate time to do so.
Open feedback by the community
9th of July
We will publish a list of applicants, and the debating community will be invited to submit feedback on our potential DCA candidates, which may be non-anonymous or anonymous, but will in all cases be treated with the utmost discretion. Any feedback you send will be read and discussed only by Gigi Gil and Lucía Arce Cubas. Open feedback is very important - we can hardly be everywhere at once, and we see this as an invaluable tool to gather data on an applicant’s track record and potential. Feedback will close on the 19th of July at 23:59 Madrid time
Deliberation and online interviews
20th of July
Once we have collected most of our data, we will begin deliberating over our applicants. During this time, we may choose to approach some of the candidates to schedule an online interview with Gigi and Lucía. Getting an interview or not getting an interview is not in any way indicative of the possibility of getting the position, we merely see it as another tool to obtain information on our applicants.
26th of July
Our chosen DCAs will be announced to the community! Yay!
