Interview Process

Mapping out your journey
Write your awesome label here.
  • Polish up your resume and address your cover letter to "Elizabeth." (She's kind of a cover letter snob, so don't miss the tips for success below.)
  • Fill out the application and attach your resume and cover letter. 
  • Depending on how early you get this done, you might be in for a bit of a wait. Check the countdown timer above!
  • After applications close, we'll send out Application Part 2. (See more below)
  • Your complete application will be reviewed by Elizabeth Vahey Smith, the intern coordinator, and the supervisors for the respective intern positions. 
  • You'll be invited to a second interview or we'll notify you that we're moving forward with other applicants. Either way, we won't ghost you. 
  • After narrowing down the applicants, we'll do reference checks! We're looking for people who actually know you and can vouch for what you're like to interact with. 
  • After you're accepted for the position, we'll do a background check as the final step. (Don't worry; it's on the house.) But we don't like to be surprised by the background checks so - if you have a record, maybe mention that in the interview. We have a great sense of humor though so if your misdemeanor involves unwittingly trespassing in a cemetery until you meet an officer with no sense of humor, we definitely want to hear that story. 
  • Application

    Our application starts with some basic information and demographic questions before asking how you align with our company culture. 
    It also requires:
    • Cover Letter
    • Resume
  • Application Part 2

    The second part of our application process will be sent out after after the deadline for applications. In this application, we'll provide a description for the niche intern positions available. At this point, you might choose to withdraw your application if you feel that none of the options align with your goals. If you wish to continue, you can explain which positions you'd be interested in. You'll also be asked to submit a brief video recording explaining how this internship will help you to achieve your goals.
