How to Apply: Applying to the ELL Summer Institute is a two-step process:
-Each of the test sections hiring for the summer is associated with a specific work sample (see below). Complete a separate work sample for each test section for which you would like to be considered.
-If you do not already have one, create an ETS application account. Log in to your account and fill out or update the required data. Then upload a cover letter, your résumé or CV, and each completed 2016 work sample you would like to submit for review. We prefer Word documents, not PDFs. Make sure all documents contain “2016” in their titles before uploading them. Upload your documents only one time each. Log out and log back in to see that your documents were uploaded.
-Title a cover letter with your first and last name plus “Cover” and the year “2016” (example: Jane Doe Cover 2016).
-Title your résumé or CV with your first and last name plus “CV” and the year “2016” (example: Jane Doe CV 2016). (Although you have the option to paste the contents of your résumé or CV into a field, we prefer that you upload a copy. You can leave that field blank.)
-Documents which are not properly titled will not be reviewed.
-Please note: If you submitted an application in the past, you will already have documents, such as a résumé or CV, attached to your account. You cannot remove them. Upload your most recent versions as stated above; we will only look at versions that contain “2016” in the title.
