What is the timeline of the recruiting process?
We begin recruiting in September each year for both the ACT and Intern classes that will begin the following summer. We conduct first round interviews in late September-mid October. Final interviews for the ACT Program take place in late October. Our intern candidates do not participate in a second round of interviews. Typically we notify all applicants of hiring decisions by mid-November.
