Work at IHS

At IHS, we are dedicated to connecting and inspiring students and professors committed to the power of freedom and of ideas. Help us advance the principles and practice of freedom, and build a meaningful career advancing liberty through a position at IHS.

We recognize that applying for jobs is time consuming, and you took the time to seek out our organization and fill out an online application, so we’d like to honor the time you put into your application by being as transparent as possible about what’s going on behind the scenes throughout our hiring process.  Here are a few guidelines to help you successfully navigate the process.

How do I apply?
Open opportunities are listed on our website, so please submit an application through our online application process.  You don’t need “the perfect resume” to capture our attention, but do take the time to let us know why you’d like to work for IHS, and why you are applying to this specific role.  Hint: Cutting and pasting a form cover letter won’t help us get to know you better.

I’ve submitted an application, what next?  How long until I hear back?
A real live person on our team, not a system algorithm, will review your application within two to three weeks of submission.  During high volume recruiting or unexpected circumstances, it may take us a bit longer but a member of our team will review your application and give you an update on your status.

A member of our team may contact you for an introductory interview, which will most likely be over the phone.  Most of our roles will require at least one on-site interview, possibly more if there’s mutual interest!

We will conduct a reference check, background verification, and present you with an offer if you’re selected as the best person for the role.

I didn’t get the job, but I really want to work for IHS.  What should I do next?
We make an effort to update you on your status, regardless of the outcome.  And we are constantly growing, which means new opportunities arise frequently.  Please check back for new opportunities or send an application to “future candidate” to be on our short list when future roles open up.
