Interview Application Fee – Terms and eligibility for fee waivers
The application fee of $34.99 covers the cost of in-depth research, drafting questions, and publishing interviews for select candidates. The application fee is taken up-front as a means to filter serious nominations only.
If your application is rejected for any reason, the $34.99 fee will be fully refunded via PayPal, as it will not be needed to fund the further ancillary requirements of publishing a candidate’s interview.
The application fee is eligible as a marketing expense for tax purposes, as it can be classified as a form of advertising since our audience will see your interview and follow any relevant links we post linking to your website or service.
If your application is accepted, you may still request a refund if you change your mind prior to research and publication. However, once the interview is published, you acknowledge that the benefits have been established, along with the work our team has placed into the publication. As such, refunds can only be given between the time we accept your nomination until we start interviewing the candidate.
We understand there are situations where a candidate deserves recognition but does not have the means to pay. We review these nominations on a case by case basis and will ask for corroborating documentation to verify financial hardships. To apply for a fee waiver, please fill out the form below.
