JE Dunn’s early career professional recruitment takes place both in the Fall (September to November) and Spring (March to May). Our process begins with a review of resumes and qualifications before the selection of who will be invited for first-round interviews, which are usually conducted on college campuses. This allows us to get to know you, understand your goals and aspirations, and evaluate your background. It also gives you a chance to get to know us. Following a first-round interview, candidates may be invited to attend one of our regional Experience JE Dunn interviewing events. Hiring decisions are typically made within two weeks of this second interview, and we will stay in close contact with you throughout the process.
The first-round interview is typically a group interview on campus, providing an opportunity to get to know several of our leaders. The information we have gathered through your resume, application and work experience helps us evaluate what contributions you personally would be able to make to our company. The second-round interview is conducted in one our regional offices. This all-day Experience JE Dunn event is an opportunity for you to learn more about our company, our culture and the services we provide. You may even visit a jobsite, or two.
We suggest three things:
- Be prepared. Understand who JE Dunn is, our industry and what makes us unique. It’s also important to be clear on and ready to articulate your own goals and preferences. What is important to you in your first position and why should JE Dunn hire you?
- Be professional. This is a job interview and first impressions count. Be on time and dress appropriately.
- Ask questions. Compile research before your interview so you can ask thoughtful questions as they relate to our company and current industry issues. You want to walk away with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
JE Dunn recruits are encouraged to apply for on-campus interviews through their career services center. However, if we are not scheduled on your campus, we still want to meet you. Please click here to submit your resume directly, online.
