Candidate Matching Process

The Broad Residency is focused on matching a candidate’s skills and preferences with an organization’s culture and needs.

    Indicate Flexibility

    At the resume submission, candidates indicate their geographic flexibility. Candidates will have the opportunity to update their geographic preferences throughout the process.

  • 2

    Provide Initial Geographic Preferences

    At the application submission, candidates provide initial geographic preferences based on a list of cities.  The Broad Residency will later confirm Residency opportunities in most of these cities.  

    Later in the process, a few of the cities initially listed may no longer be options and will be replaced by additional cities.

    Discuss Initial Geographic Preferences

    Learn about Partner Organizations and Opportunities

    Prior to the 2nd Round Interviews, The Broad Residency conducts webinars to give candidates additional insight on the matching process.

    Candidates who advance beyond the 2nd Round Interview will be provided detailed information regarding partner organziations and roles.

    Partner Organization Matching and Interviews

    The Broad Residency works with each candidate to determine which organization(s) he/she will travel to for a final interview. 

    The hiring organization conducts the final interview.  These interviews occur between April and May 2015. The partner organization makes the final hiring decision.

    The Broad Residency Begins

    The hiring organization determines the work start date.

    The Broad Residency's mandatory orientation session takes place in July. Resident supervisors attend orientation.


Geographic Flexibility

Geographic flexibility maximizes a candidate's opportunities to find a fitting opportunity and become part of The Broad Residency.  Candidates unable to consider multiple geographies may experience competition with other candidates for a limited number of Residency opportunities.
