How it works

You choose which applications to make to which clients. You go through the same process as everyone else. There are no "fast tracks" and no back doors. So when you get hired you know it’s purely on merit.

Our standards are high; we're elite - we look for outstanding people - but not elitist - we have people from over 100 universities on our books. We look at every application to Rare in its full social, educational and personal context.
