Apply for Summer Employment

All 2014 summer employment candidates must submit an online application and a current resume to be considered for a position. Even if you have previously worked for CTY Summer Programs, you will not be allowed to submit the online application without uploading a resume (or confirming that a previously uploaded resume is current). Below are further instructions and links to the 2014 CTY Summer Employment Application.

Note to candidates applying for instructor positions: Candidates applying for instructor positions (both new and returning) should provide a summary of teaching experience including:

  1. Number of years (including through the end the current academic year) of full-time, pre-collegiate teaching
  2. Lead (non-TA) college or university teaching experience by semester (e.g., Fall 2013, 2 courses), including (anticipated) teaching in spring 2014

You may include the teaching experience summary on your resume or upload it as a separate document when you submit your application using the Teaching Experience Summary template.

Instructions for Returning Employees

Candidates who have previously worked for CTY Summer Programs should access the online application by logging into MyCTY. Although you are not required to submit updated references or transcripts, you will be required to upload a resume or verify that the resume we have on file is current in order to submit your application.

After Submitting the Application

All candidates who successfully submit a completed application form will receive a confirmation email. After that point, the hiring process for CTY Summer Programs is as follows:

  • Application consideration begins in January and will continue through the beginning of the programs.
  • We first place returning candidates in good standing. Returning candidates applying for the same positions they held the previous year will be notified about their status no later than March 15. At the same time, we set up telephone interviews with returning applicants applying for new positions.
  • We review applications from candidates new to CTY and begin contacting those applicants regarding their status and to set up interviews for selected candidates in early March, but no later than early April. If at any time you would like to inquire about your status, please feel free to contact us at 410-735-6185 or
  • Throughout the spring, we conduct telephone interviews for new applicants, review incoming applications, and continue to recruit as needed.
  • Positions may become available after the initial review phase has been completed. If this occurs, we once again review all applications, including those that have arrived since the initial phase, and select appropriate candidates for interviews.
  • Because of the large volume of applications, you may not hear from us for several weeks after submitting your application. If, during this time, you are offered another job offer or have questions about the application process, you are welcome to send us an email at or call 410-735-6185 to ascertain the status of your application.
