Hello fellow GEM applicants,

 

I wanted to start a forum for the 2017 application pool, so that we can update each other on our progress of acceptance/declines/employee status for a sense of the schedule. It should help clear up any lagging notifications and hopefully answer some questions!

 

Here is the link to a few of the past years of these discussions:

GEM 2017

GEM 2016

GEM 2015

GEM 2014

By now, some applicants should have received notification via email on whether they have moved to the next round or were accepted (In the FAQs, Q10 states that "a handful of candidates have been selected already").

I applied as well and my employer status says released, so I'm not sure what that means. 

From what I read, "released," means a company was reviewing your application and decided to go with another applicant.

Anybody know how to get a full list of employers or see your submitted application? I vaguely remember Amazon being one of the choices on my application but don't see them anywhere on GEM's official list.

I recently had my Employer Member Status change from "matched" to "held" I have no idea what that means.

I also emailed the GEM people and got a small response, didnt help much but here it is.

"Thank you for contacting us at The National GEM Consortium.  With regard to your MATCHED employer status, GEM Employers are actively reaching out to Complete 2018 GEM applicants right now. Please make sure your voicemail is updated with a professional outgoing message. Please respond within 24 hours to any requests for an interview or other GEM Employer inquiries. You will see your homepage Employer status change from held, unmatched, to matched, to released as your application is previewed by several Employers. Do not be concerned with this status.

 All GEM Employers can see your application and will outreach to interview, if potentially interested in sponsoring you as a GEM Fellow.  Please be reminded, the employers select you, you do not select the employer.  You are encouraged to interview with all employers outreaching to you, as you do not know who you are held by or matched with.  Remember, this is an opportunity to be fully funded through your graduate STEM degree.  The internship is for a 10-12 week period and there is no obligation beyond the required internship(s) to remain with an employer or for an employer to continue to engage or employ your beyond the fellowship internship commitment.  This means, if you are not selected by your top pick employer, be mindful of the support opportunity and that if you decline the internship, you are declining the fellowship.

Thank you,

The National GEM Consortium"

On the call this week, I think they mentioned that we could reach out to GEM employers we are interested in as well. Just wondering if anyone has done that or plans on doing that. Based on the email posted by EngineerAlvara, it seems like maybe we just wait for the employers to reach out to us instead...
