All applicants should be eligible to work in the United States. By applying for the “GMA Advice Guru” position, you represent that you are not subject to any contractual restrictions on your ability to work for American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. (“ABC”), including but not limited to a non-compete from another employer, from the time of application through the acceptance of an employment offer. The Walt Disney Company, and its subsidiary and affiliated companies, including ABC, are equal opportunity employers.
To apply on-line, go to www.abcnews.com/gma and follow the instructions on how to submit your essay and answers to the questions (“essay package”). ABC is not responsible for failed, partial, delayed or garbled computer transmissions, or for technical failures of any kind in connection with submissions or the submission process, including but not limited to electronic malfunction or damage of any network, hardware or software. Submissions must be received by October 15, 2010 at Midnight ET.
By submitting to this process, you are agreeing to be a part of the “GMA Advice Guru” search process. Should you be chosen to go to the next round (in which case ABC expects to contact you within a week after October 15th), that process is expected to consist of – but may not be limited to – giving on-camera video responses to specific questions posed by ABC, which become the property of ABC, as described more fully below.
Should you become a finalist for the position (there will be approximately 10 finalists, though ABC reserves the right to increase or decrease that total), your application for the “GMA Advice Guru” position and your participation in this process will be made public on Good Morning America and on the ABCNews.com website in early November. Prior to and/or after becoming a finalist, you will be required to submit an employment application, go through a formal interview process, and be subject to a satisfactory check of references and completion and review of any other hiring prerequisites, including but not limited to a criminal background check. You also may be required to appear online and on-air in the capacity as a GMA Advice Guru “finalist,” asked to answer questions on-camera to be posted online or on the ABC Television Network, and/or participate in other on-air or online activities as part of this process. Additional processes also may be added at ABC’s sole discretion. Failure to comply with any required step at any stage in the process may result in the rejection of your application, at ABC’s sole discretion.
