  1. How do I apply for a position at Public Radio International? 
    Email your cover letter and resume to jobs@pri.org specifying the position title to which you are applying to in the subject line.  For certain positions, PRI may request additional materials to be sent along with your resume, these will be indicated within the position posting. 
     
  2. How will I know the application deadline? 
    Application deadlines, if any, will be included in the position posting.  If there is not a deadline listed, PRI will remove the posting from the website once we are no longer accepting resumes or the position has been filled.
     

  3. Why do I see a job posting on another site, but the position is not listed on pri.org?
    Job postings on other sites may be set to run for a longer period of time than our position openings.  If you see an ad on another site, but not listed on PRI, the position has been filled or we are no longer accepting resumes for the position.  
     

  4. Whom should I address my cover letter to?
    If the hiring manager is listed within the posting, please feel to address your cover letter to them.  If not, we suggest addressing it to Human Resources or the position department.

  5. How will I know the status of my application?  
    Once you submit your resume to jobs@pri.org you will receive an email notification confirming the receipt of your materials.  We will generally contact top candidates within 4 weeks of submission to schedule an interview.  Unfortunately, we are unable to reach out to all applicants with individual updates on the status of the position.    
     

  6. Will I be notified when the position is filled?
    You will be notified that a position is filled if you have been interviewed for the position. We are unable to reach out to all candidates when a position has been filled. 
     

  7. How long is the hiring process?  
    We take pride in bringing on new team members and this, of course, takes great effort and time.  From job posting to offer, our hiring process generally takes about 8 - 12 weeks. 
     

  8. At what location will positions be based in?
    All of our job postings will include the city in which the position is based.  Most of our open positions will be located at our Minneapolis, MN office.  There are times when we recruit for our production, The World.  Those positions are most likely based in Boston, MA.  
     

  9. Where can I send other application or employment related questions?
