• conversation starter:


    Email team@betterworlded.org (and cc abhi@betterworlded.org) with your CV and a video that is no more than 3 minutes long of you answering the questions below. Please share a private link for Youtube/Vimeo or a Google Drive Link to access the video.



    Why a video? It teaches us a lot about you beyond the written word. Here are some notes from what we've learned makes a solid conversation starter:

    • Be yourself. Don't hold back.
    • If your eyes lit up when you engaged with some aspect of the curriculum, say so -- and share why.
    • Just talk. No fancy editing needed. Even if you're applying to do video work with us (then just share your best most similar work to what we create).
    • Don't let this become time consuming. Read this site and just start recording!
    • Keep the video under 3 minutes. We may not engage if it's longer.
    • So many people feel that body language and the way in which we communicate -- our energy -- is much more important than what we actually say. We think both matter.




    1. Create your own question and then answer it.



    2. Have you ever been part of an organization in such a critical stage? What experiences from your life show you that this is an environment in which you can thrive based on what you've read about our stage and culture? (Make sure to read the home page of jointheteam.betterworlded.org for more context before you answer this question.)



    3. What differentiates Better World Ed from other organizations and companies in our landscape? Why is the Better World Ed mission the one for you?



    4. Why is the role you've read about different from the roles you've played until now in your life?






    STEP 2:

    We'll have some emails and/or a call if we see potential fit.


    STEP 3:

    If that call feels great to you and to our team, we'll have you speak with more people on the team.


    STEP 4:

    It will likely help you and our team to engage in some kind of mini-project or exercise that helps get a sense of what it's like to work together. In one case, for example, a candidate created I Am Mac as his final interview. He now leads video with us.






    Note: We will do our best to respond to all outreach, though we are a small, stretched team. Please don't hesitate to follow up in a few weeks if you don't hear from us. We appreciate kind follow ups (and we are often sending them out, too)! Thank you for your understanding, your passion, and your patience with us!
