All new applicants for the expeditions are required to attend a 1:1 one-hour interview with an expedition leader to:
- Talk through what the expedition entails, set realistic expectations
- Gauge cultural fit
- Discuss risks and risk mitigation
- Discuss what is required to be expedition ready: fitness, mindset, equipment
- Answer any questions
The interview fee for the application is $50 per applicant and is non-refundable. The fee is baked into the cost of the expedition and allows us to compensate our (otherwise volunteer) planning team. After receiving the application fee, we'll reach out to cue up the interview.
We typically inform applicants within 48-hours of the interview, and successful applicants are provided a link to leave a deposit to secure their place as well as other details for the next step.
Successful applicants can choose to join this year's or subsequent year's expeditions based on this interview.
Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
