Recommended Posts

Yeah I applied for the regular deadline. I haven't heard anything. I found the link for last year's GEM discussion in case anyone is interested.

I applied for early consideration and currently my status says matched.

I applied.  My status went from "matched" to "held".  From previous years discussion.  This means my application is "in review" by a company.

 

Anyone else?

Hey Guys! 

 

I applied too. My status went from preliminary match, to matched, and it's been at Held for about a week now. I read last year's thread about the GEM fellowship and still don't really understand what Matched and Held and Released means!

What was your "employee status" before you were sponsored?  (i.e. matched, held, released)?

i applied last year. major miscommunication between my university and GEM so i reapplied this year for early consideration again. I got a call from one company last week, was a brief conversation and the rep let me know they were about to review candidates later that week. Still havent heard back yet. My status still says held. Has been that way for about a week or so.

I applied for the early consideration. I didn't apply to all three schools since I was already in the program. My school rep told me that I don't have to apply to 2 other schools since I was already in a program. I am applying to the PhD fellowship.  Anyways got an email from GEM saying I have to apply to three schools or my application will be disqualified.  Which I did last minute anyways. My employer status was matched to released. Does anyone know what released means?

Released means that an employer has put your application back to the general pool.

Yes, released means you are back in the pool.

 

What is the difference between "held" and "matched".  I imagine they both mean a employer is reviewing an application.
