Please note: If you are under the age of 18 or not a US Citizen we will deny your application. We hope to open this program to other companies in the future.

In this blog article, we are going to break down our process of choosing candidates for our 3-month flagship program:
  1. The Ideal Candidate
  2. The Application Process
  3. The Questionnaire
  4. Screening Interviews
  5. Course Acceptance
  6. Why We Deny Candidates

The Ideal Candidate

At OnDelta, we aren't looking for a certain background or profile. What we are looking for is your willingness to learn and apply yourself.

To be a great growth marketer, you have to work quickly and efficiently. The reason for this is because efficient marketers are more productive, and they have more opportunities to learn about their users and product.

An ideal candidate for OnDelta takes this to heart, and shows thoughtful answers to the questions in our application.

To qualify for OnDelta, you must:

  • Be over 18 years old
  • A US Citizen

We hope to open to other countries in the future, but as of now, we are focusing on people in the United States.

Since all candidates are different, it's hard to give an exact profile of what we are looking for, but the most successful candidates have this background:

  • A bachelor's degree in communications, marketing, political science, English, or computer science
  • A career in digital marketing, sales, software, or freelancing
  • Experience with social media and content creation/curation
  • Freelancing experience

This is not an extensive list, and we don't discriminate if you don't come from a background that includes these fields. We love to see different types of people signing up for our course, and our goal is to help anyone break into the tech industry through marketing... regardless of their background.

The Application Process

Our application process is broken into 2 parts: a questionnaire and a video interview.

The Questionnaire

Our questionnaire can be found on our portal when you first sign up. These questions are your introduction to the OnDelta application team. This is our way of getting an understanding of you and what your goals are.

In the form, you will find two types of questions:

  1. Your profile
  2. Your preferences

The profile form is for us to get more information about you. We ask you for your social profiles and also define if you meet our applicant requirements.

NOTE: Please do not lie about if you are from the US or over the age of 18. We'll figure out eventually, and it isn't a good look.

The preferences form is the second part of the application. This is where we get an understanding of you.

In this section you will find questions about your:

  • living situation
  • job situation
  • computer type
  • ideal start date

We also have a couple of long-form questions to learn more about you.

Within 48 hours we will send you a decision on whether you've been accepted or denied.

The Screening Interview

If you've been accepted to the next round of interviews you will receive an email with a Calendly link. Please fill out a time that works best for you.

If a time slot on the calendar does not fit in your schedule, shoot us an email at

This is the part of the process where we judge your communication skills and your promptness. It's a 20-minute video call with you and someone on our applications team.

It's a bad signal to us if you are late, or a no-show. We ask that if you know you aren't going to make your call, please let us know as soon as possible. If you are more than 5 minutes late, the video call will be canceled and you will have to reschedule for another time.

If you miss your time slot, please send us an email explaining why first before rescheduling. We will give you 3 days after missing your interview to send us an email explaining why you missed the interview and to reschedule the next interview.

If you miss the 3-day time period, you will be denied.

The video call takes place on Zoom. Please make sure that you have the Zoom app downloaded before your call and that you are prepared in a quiet place with good internet.

Come prepared with any questions you may have. While you can always reach out to us with questions at, this is the best time to ask questions about the course and the company. It's as much of an interview for you, as it is for us.

Within 72 hours after your video interview, we will send you our final decision.

Course Acceptance

If we've accepted you into the next class, we will send you the income share agreement with our acceptance letter.

We ask that within 7 days of receiving your final acceptance email, you sign the income share agreement.

Even though applications are on a rolling basis, we want to know as soon as possible if you decide to accept and join your cohort. There are a limited number of seats for each course, and we don't want to keep a seat from someone else if you decide to not join.

Why We Deny Applications

The most common reason why we deny applications is because your profile does not meet our current requirements.

To qualify for OnDelta, you must:

  • Be over 18 years old
  • Be a US citizen

While we'd like to accommodate international students, we can't at this time.

If you qualify for this course, and you received a rejection email after submitting the questionnaire it's because (and not limited to) these reasons:

  • You didn't fill out all of the fields
  • You didn't provide enough information for us to make an informed decision (we usually follow up in these scenarios and ask for more information before rejecting your application)

If you made it to the interview round, and you received an email from your interviewer that you've been rejected, it's because (and not limited to) these reasons:

  • We felt that you aren't the right fit at this time
  • You didn't show up to the interview, and you didn't reschedule within our 3 day rescheduling window
  • You showed a hostile attitude during the interview

If you are denied after your video interview, please don't take it personally. We are receiving hundreds of applications, and we are only accepting a limited number of students at this time.

If you are denied, don't let that stop you from re-applying. It might help to also take our pre-course if you haven't already.


This is our application process. Hopefully, this helped and provided some insight into why we do things the way we do. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
