Each year, we recruit at colleges and universities by participating in a number of activities and events such as Beta Alpha Psi meetings and recognition dinners, on-campus office hours, alumni mentoring programs, career fairs, informal in-office tours, class guest speaking, and more!

Our recruitment process for associate and internship-level opportunities occurs during the fall recruitment cycle.  We conduct on-campus interviews arranged through each campus’ career center in September and October.  If you attend a school or university we do not partner with, your application can be submitted directly through our website.  In early November, we host a “Call Back Day” for second and final round interviews with selected candidates.  We also host a number of activities throughout the year as an opportunity for candidates to connect with our professionals and learn more about The PS Way.  You are encouraged to check in with our recruitment team throughout the year for more information about upcoming events.

WE ARE COMING SOON TO A CAMPUS NEAR YOU! All associate- and intern-level position applications will be posted on our website and the career sites of the schools listed below on Thursday, August 15th. Check out our list of application deadlines and On-Campus Interview dates below! We will be conducting phone screens for those candidates not currently enrolled at one of our partner schools in mid-October.
