Sample Application

If you're curious what sorts of things we ask in the candidate application, here's an example.

This application was used in the Fall 2018 search at Xanadu. The current application is likely to be different. During the search cycle, you can fill out the current application on game by typing SEARCH ME and following the instructions there.

If you have any questions, find someone with 'SearchCo' in their @doing on game and ask them!

More information about search can be found in the help section search.
