This page is a guide for Internship Applicants. If you are having problems with your application, account, login, or password, please read on
Currently, where you "search/save internship positions" and where you "complete/submit an application" are on two different websites. We will integrate these two by the end of the summer, but in the meantime, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you follow these directions.
In order to successfully complete your application, you need to have identical accounts on www.thesca.org and http://rm.thesca.org/candidate. The username and password need to be exactly the same on both. If you already have an existing SCA application, PLEASE use your existing email address, username, and password when you create your "search/save positions" profile for the new website. If you don't remember your SCA application password, you can request your password be sent to you.
Step 1 - Create a Profile on www.thesca.org/user/register
You need to have a profile to save positions to your application. If you have an existing application, use the exact same username and password. If you have already, mistakenly created a website profile login with a different u/n p/w it WILL NOT work for getting back into your existing application. Your application information is still there and you must use your original application u/n p/w to access it.
Step 2 - Start Your Application on http://rm.thesca.org/candidate
If you are starting a new application, create a website profile first, then use that same u/n p/w . If you already have an account on http://rm.thesca.org/candidate then login. Everything you have done before on http://rm.thesca.org/candidate is still saved from before.
Be sure to select "Conservation Internships & Corps" under program type.
You can just complete the first page of the application, "Preliminary Profile," and then click "Save and Continue Later" to complete the application after you have added internships.
Step 3 - Select Four or More Internships
Locate at least four internships you are interested in and available for.
Tools for finding internships:
Once you find an internship, look in the right sidebar, click the blue button that says "Add to My Position Cart."
Step 4 - Viewing Your Profile and Adding Positions to Your Application
While logged into both www.thesca.org and rm.thesca.org/candidate, view your www.thesca.org profile by clicking the blue button "View my Profile" or by clicking "my sca" in the top navigation menu or by clicking here. Once you are in your profile you are able to remove internships from your favorites and from your cart. If you press the blue button "Apply For Positions Now" you will be taken to your application and the positions in your cart will be added to your application. Again, you must also be simultaneously signed into rm.thesca.org/candidate for this to work.
Step 5 - Your Application
Once your internships have been successfully added to your application, you will need to complete the application. This includes:
Step 6 - Placement
If your application is complete, and at least one reference is in, and fee has been paid, you will hear from us soon about where your application has been sent.
