Job preview

IMS seeks to employ the best available candidate for each position. After preliminary interviews, we may invite an applicant, especially for a residential staff position, to visit us for a few days to experience the job and meet staff members. This is called a job preview, and if it proves to be a good two-way fit, we may then offer the position.
