Hiring process for students

Visit EY events central to view an up-to-date listing of virtual events, which are open to all students. You’ll be able to register for events relevant to your interests that will help you explore career opportunities in professional services. And, you’ll be able to do so with the flexibility needed to accommodate your busy schedule.

Next, visit the EY student job board where you’ll find all open job opportunities. You can utilize the filters on the left side of the page to navigate by country, city*, service line** and start date. We recommend applying for the one position in which you are most interested.

After you complete your application for employment, we’ll review your résumé and qualifications. Students are selected for an initial interview based on academic background, extracurricular activities and work experience.

If you are selected, you’ll be invited to participate in a pre-recorded video interview. This is a great way for us to get to know you, understand your career interests and qualifications, and evaluate your potential role at EY US. Top candidates are then invited to participate in a second interview, which for most practices, will take place via live video interviews with our professionals.

A decision is usually made within a few weeks of the final interview. We know that waiting to hear can be tough — so we will let you know as soon as we can. Our recruiters and professionals will stay in touch with you throughout the recruiting process, and we ask that you do the same. We welcome you to ask questions, request additional information or let us know if you have received another offer.
