Every candidate for ESEP must submit at least three references. At least two of these references must be available to be interviewed by phone or web audio connection. All interviews are between one individual and up to three Certification Application Reviewers. All interviews are conducted in English. Candidate interviews are typically one hour long, while reference interviews are thirty minutes long.
The purpose of the interviews is to learn more about the candidate’s technical leadership, beyond what is captured in the application form. The application questions and content of the interview should not be shared. The review team may or may not interview the references.
Candidates may request special accommodations for their interview if English is not their first language or if they have an auditory or other challenge. This should be done through the Special Accommodations form. Possible accommodations are extra time and visually displayed questions.
