How can I be sure St. Mark’s received my resume and cover letter?

St. Mark’s acknowledges the receipt of all candidate papers. If a candidate submits papers electronically, we respond via email. If a candidate mails papers, we respond with a written letter. Our goal is to respond to all inquiries within one week of receipt.

Q

How do my credentials reach the appropriate person at St. Mark’s?

A

Once a candidate has applied for a specific position, the resume is reviewed by the Assistant Head/Dean of Faculty and forwarded to the appropriate Department Head. If there is a good match between school needs and candidate experience and skills, we will reach out to continue the process by setting up a phone interview.

Q

How can I learn the status of my candidacy?

A

The Assistant Head/Dean of Faculty is constantly reviewing resumes. If your background and experiences are a strong match for the position to which you are applying, the Assistant Head/Dean of Faculty will contact you for a phone interview. Please understand that the resume review process takes time due to the high volume of resumes that we receive. If you have advanced to the phone interview stage, but are not advanced as an on-campus finalist, you will be notified via email. All finalists will receive a phone call regarding the status of their candidacy.

Q

How does the on-campus interview process work for finalists?

A

You will meet with the Head of School, Assistant Head/Dean of Faculty, Dean of Academics, Dean of Students, Director of Residential Life, Director of Athletics, Director of Community and Equity Affairs, Department Head and department members. Based on the schedule, finalists may interview with pairs of St. Mark’s people. During the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your qualifications and previous experiences, while learning more about St. Mark’s. In most cases, you will be asked in advance to teach a class.

Once all interviews for a position have been completed, the Assistant Head/Dean of Faculty reviews candidate evaluations completed by each interviewer and makes a recommendation to the Head of School. A position remains open on our job-posting site until an offer has been made and the candidate has accepted the position.

Q

St. Mark’s checks references on every candidate invited to campus as a finalist.
