The leadership team has reviewed the two CVs that you provided.  Candidate A has a part-time job and experience with big reports.  Candidate B seems to do a lot of contracting, and they have experience with ICANN, ISOC, and ARIN.  These are not big differences, but we think that the experience with the ICANN community will be very helpful.  Please move forward with Candidate B.

ICANN org’s due diligence efforts followed ICANN’s standard practice used for other similar assignments. Due diligence included evaluations by our Talent Acquisition and Communications teams. There were 12 candidates submitted for the Temporary Technical Writer assignment. The candidates included individuals referred by the SSR2 Review Team and those sourced by ICANN’s Talent Acquisition team.   All candidates were carefully considered based on the job description criteria (see attached). Short-listed candidates were each interviewed by MSSI, Talent Acquisition, and Communications teams to gain a thorough understanding of their experiences vs. the job requirements. We have identified two suitable candidates that could both, potentially, fulfill this role.

Both candidates are available to start right away, prepared to travel to Brussels in May and Marrakech in June, and contracting will be completed within a few days after the SSR2 provides their selection.
