    This link is to register for Caliper testing sponsored by our wonderful friends at Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina (IIANC).  IIANC gave us a grant to purchase Caliper job testing, which typically costs about $300 per student.  

    There is no cost to students to participate in this, but, you must be a paid GIS member.


    The process works like this:


    1.  You register here for testing.  You'll receive a confirmation e-mail after doing so.
    2.  Within a few days you will receive another e-mail that contains a link to the Caliper test.  
    3.  Find a quiet place and time to take the test, which can take 60-90 minutes to complete.  Do NOT take the test where you have distractions or when you are not focused!  The goal is to get the most accurate results possible.  DO NOT collaborate with others on your answers.  There are no right or wrong answers--the goal of the test is to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and help you understand more about them for your job search.

    4.  Once your results have been tabulated Dr. Wells will e-mail you to schedule a time to go over your results with you.  

    5.  You will be able to keep a copy of the results for your records.

    Students who apply are not guaranteed to go on the trip.  We will select students based on certain criteria.  The final decision on who travels rests with the RMI faculty, and those decisions are final.  Travel on this trip is a privilege, and not a right.

    *must agree to contribute $500 towards the cost of the trip.  These funds must be provided no later than the first day of Spring Semester, 2020, by check or money order made payable to East Carolina University - RMI Program. 

    *must e-mail current resume to Dr. Wells at wellsbr@ecu.edu immediately after submitting this application 


    Students meeting these criteria will then be prioritized according to many factors, including but not limited to:


    *Anticipated graduation date

    *Class standing

    *Participation in previous Gamma Iota Sigma events

    *Leadership roles played in Gamma Iota Sigma

    *Total number of hours completed in the RMI concentration

    *Previous travel experience with Gamma Iota Sigma

    *Academic performance in RMI classes

    *Professionalism

    *Resume quality

    *Performance in face-to-face interview with RMI Faculty.



    The elected will be enrolled in, and must successfully complete, the 1 hour credit course offered in the spring semester by Dr. Wells.  This course will prepare you for travel to London both professionally and culturally. 


    You will be notified by e-mail as to whether or not you are selected for travel.     

    If you have any questions please direct them to Dr. Wells at wellsbr@ecu.edu
