Interviewing and Placement
The JVC screening and placement process is one of mutual discernment and reflection. The JVC staff engages with each applicant in a dialogue meant to determine whether the applicant is prepared for a commitment to a year of structured community living and the challenge of working at one of JVC's job placement sites.
*Note this is a sample of the Domestic JV Handbook. The dates and locations are personalized, but the general information is consistent across the country. Each handbook is personalized for the year and city in which each JV is serving. Once accepted into the program, JVs will receive a handbook for the relevant city.
Please review the following documents for more information regarding the screening and interview process:

- The Covenant of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps
In preparation for an interview with a potential JVC placement site, we encourage all applicants to ask the agency contact for a full job description and prepare for the interview as you would for any job. Additionally, we have put together a list of questions that may be helpful for you to ask during your interview.
There is only one deadline to apply for the international program (January 16, 2014). Once completed applications are reviewed, applicants are invited for the first phase of interviewing, between January 17th – Mid February. After this stage, if the applicant is invited to one of four discernment weekends, the second interview is in person. The dates for the discernment weekends will happen in March, 2014
In preparation for the first round of interviews applicants should review the international program handbook and covenant.
