What is your recruiting process like?

The recruiting process starts from the first point of contact made by you as a candidate, so whether you send an email or resume, call, or meet with us at a career fair, be at your best so you distinguish yourself from the crowd of other applicants.

For internship and entry level positions, we actively recruit through most of the local colleges and universities so whenever there is a job fair at your school – check the roster as there’s a good chance we’ll be there. Also keep an eye on your school’s job boards – we often post these positions through the college career center job boards.

For experienced professionals, resumes may be sent directly through our website or any external job postings we may have at the time. Resumes submitted through these sources receive an automated response to let you know that we received your information. The process is as follows:

  • Screening Call – For candidates who seem to match our requirements and needs, we will schedule an informal phone conversation where we can get to know more about you and provide some insight into our firm and the position you are applying for. This allows both parties to see if there is a fit. If there is a good fit, you may be invited for an in-person interview.
  • First Round Interview – For your first-round, in-person interview, you can expect to meet with someone from Human Resources as well as one to two Staff personnel from the department you would be working in.
  • Second Round Interview – If there is mutual interest in moving forward to a second-round interview, you will meet with a representative from Human Resources as well as the Department Chair for the department you may be working in. In most cases, that will be the final interview, after which time you will be notified of whether you will be offered the job you interviewed for.
