Hiring requires three phases

Phase I: Interview all Candidates

All Candidates are usually invited and scheduled for an interview. An interviewing committee is put in place by those interested to hire the new person(s). The Committee might include also interns and younger persons as long as they are briefed on the process. All interviewees get to ask questions and fill-in the Interviewing Form. At the end of the process, five candidates are selected based on their cumulative scores. They are invited to the next Phase.

Phase II: Interviewing five, choosing two

For all practical purposes, the five finalists are considered equivalent as far as their academic and personal abilities are concerned. The purpose of this Phase is to determine which candidates fulfill Future Worlds Center requirement for compatibility with its culture as well as who share Future Worlds Center's values and visions.

Phase III: Choosing 1 out of 2 finalists

The final selection is based on criteria that have to do with personal preferences and character compatibilities with those with whom the new person will work.
