Timeline

Homewood Hiring Week includes the opportunity to apply for jobs and conduct the first-round of interviews for these jobs based on the following timeline.

  • March 15 – April 5: Jobs Available
  • April 16 – Students will be aware if they got an interview and be able to select an interview slot on a first come first served basis

Companies may have additional interviews following April 29th. Employers are encouraged, but not required, to make final decisions by the beginning of June.

To ensure all students have access to a successful Homewood Hiring Week experience, the Life Design Lab consulted with the offices of Religious & Spiritual Life and Student Disability Services. We encourage students who require accommodations and those with religious or spiritual commitments that are in conflict to reach out to us by April 9th so that we may best accommodate your needs within the Homewood Hiring Week interview process.
