To select a diverse and motivated group of candidates, the selection procedure is intense and sometimes demanding. Competition can be quite fierce: normally circa 300 people apply for the 30-35 AMID positions. The selection procedure is done by a selection committee in collaboration with recruiters from Impressive Green Apple (IGA).
Round 1: From all the applicants, the 120 best candidates are invited to upload a video in which they can pitch themselves as a candidate for the AMID programme. If you are not selected for the first round you will be informed before Thursday October 4, 12.00 PM.
Round 2: The 120 selected applicants will receive a link to the IGA website, where they can upload a video pitch. Instructions on how to do this, will be send ultimately on October 7. Based on this pitch, 75 candidates will be selected for the next steps in the procedure. Candidates will be notified on October 18.
Information meeting: For the 75 selected candidates and reserves, we are organising an information meeting at Radboud University in Nijmegen on Thursday October Attendance is compulsory in order to be considered for the third round.
Round 3: All 75 candidates will be invited for a face-to-face interview at the office of recruitment agency Impressive Green Apple in The Hague between Monday October 29and Friday November 2.
Round 4: In the first and second week of November, we will match the selected candidates that passed round 3 with the available trainee positions. We will inform you, if, and to which organisation we will forward your CV. You will be invited to write an additional motivation letter to the organisation to highlight your interest in the offered position.
Round 5: Organisations select proposed candidates for an interview and schedule interviews between November 12 and December 11. Please note, being proposed to an organisation does not give candidates any guarantee to be invited for an interview by the respective organisations. The organisations, not IGA or AMID, decide whom they select from all proposed candidates.
Please note, that international candidates currently studying at ISS (International Institute of Social Studies the Hague) who are graduating in December 2017 can apply for AMID, even though they have not yet graduated. Please highlight your ISS background in your application.
AMID does not refund travel expenses made during the selection process or information day.
