HIRING PROCESS

For Students & Recent Grads

We want you to know what our hiring process is like so you feel confident navigating each step. Here's what you can expect:


1. Apply Between Aug. 24 - Sept. 25

Search for our Rotational Development and Summer Internship Programs and apply online.

  • Read the job description carefully to be sure you meet the minimum requirements, including expected graduation date
  • Submit your resume 
  • Look for a confirmation email after you apply


2. We'll Review Your Application 

We’ll review applications as they’re submitted, but you will not hear back from us with next steps until after the application closes on Sept. 25.


3. Check Your Status

We get lots of applications for our Rotational Development and Summer Internship Programs. Unfortunately, we can’t always follow up with everyone, so please log in and check your status online.


4. Phone Interview

A member of our Early Career Program Team or one of our Early Career Program Alumni will contact you by email if you meet requirements and are selected for a phone interview. The call will take 20 – 30 minutes and will be an opportunity for us to get to know you a little better and for you to ask us any questions you have. Don't worry - you don't have to turn on your camera for this one!

Candidates selected for phone interviews can expect to hear from us in early October.



5. Final Interview

We’ll contact you by phone or email if you’re selected for a final video interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place the last two weeks of October. Check out this blog for 5 tips to rock your video interview


During the interview, you'll meet with:

  • A hiring manager
  • Potential coworkers or teammates
  • A talent acquisition consultant 

If you’re interviewing for the Rotational Development Program, you’ll have two 45-minute interviews. For the Summer Internship Program, you’ll have one 45-minute interview. 

Candidates for both programs will have the opportunity talk with young professionals at Blue Cross NC to hear more about their experience and ask additional questions. 


6. Final Decisions

The wait is over! You’ll hear from us either way – to offer you a position or to let you know that you were not selected. Offers will be made in mid-November.

5 Tips to Rock Your Virtual Interview

Getting ready for an interview when things were “normal” was stressful enough. What do I wear? Where will I park? What questions will they ask? Adding a global pandemic and video interview to the mix adds a whole other layer of anxiety to an already nerve-wracking situation. We get it, and we’re right there with you.
