  • All interested candidates must formally apply to a position via this portal to be considered for an opportunity. You can apply to different openings in different locations across the country!
  • Yes! We will consider you for each opportunity to which you apply. We may also reach out if we feel you could be a fit for other opportunities in our firm based on the information you supply.
  • There is no standard timeframe, but we strive to be as communicative as possible. Hiring timelines vary based on the position(s) you’re applying for, but we’ve outlined some general information below:
    • In general, there are peak hiring seasons for college internships and post-grad entry-level opportunities. These seasons occur during the fall and spring semesters when colleges and universities across the country host recruiting events. Our cycles tend to mirror these, and that is when you’ll see internships and post-grad opportunities posted. It’s also the peak time when we’re following up with candidates we feel could align with available opportunities.
    • While college internship and post-grad entry-level opportunities are controlled by semester and graduation timelines, opportunities for experienced professionals typically develop throughout the year. They are traditionally recruited in real-time.
  • Once you apply, your information will be reviewed by our recruiting team. If, during that initial review, they feel you are a potential match for the opportunity, they will reach out directly to discuss the next steps.
  • It varies by state, but “EIT” is an abbreviation for “Engineer in Training” and “EI” is an abbreviation for “Engineer Intern”. Both designations are awarded after passing your FE exam and completing a degree from an ABET-accredited school. (To learn more about exceptions to these requirements, visit NCEES.)
  • Similarly, we use “analyst” at Kimley-Horn to reference entry-level employees who have not yet obtained professional licensure (i.e., P.E., AICP, ASLA, etc.).
  • Yes! We have opportunities within many business fields including, but not limited to, accounting, information technology, human resources, and marketing.
  • We use “analyst” or “coordinator” to reference entry-level employees, while opportunities for experienced professionals will be titled accordingly.
  • We hope your questions are answered on this FAQ page and throughout our website. If you have technical problems with your application, please visit the technical support page.
  • Traditionally we have not recruited candidates who require or will require sponsorship at any point in the future. We prioritize candidates who can work indefinitely in the U.S.   
  • No. We instead prioritize a candidate’s interest and passion so we can match them to opportunities within that subject area. That way, they can gain both breadth and depth in that field rather than breadth, but no depth, in many.
  • If you are a job seeker with a disability and require a reasonable accommodation to apply for one of our jobs, please contact us to discuss your reasonable accommodation needs by sending an email to [email protected] or calling (984) 960-3030.
