Find the Right Position for You

Preview Our Hiring Process

Step 1: Share Your Resume

Check out our open positions above, then apply and share your resume with us.

Step 2: Plan for a Phone Call

Once our recruitment team reviews resumes and selects a few candidates, we’ll schedule an introductory phone call so we can learn more about you, and you can learn more about us.

Step 3: Move the Conversation Along

For a more in-depth conversation, our hiring managers might schedule a brief phone or video interview with you.

Step 4: Join Us for an In-Person Interview

We’ll narrow down our candidates and extend an invitation for an in-person interview (or up to three interviews for certain positions) at the NIHF headquarters. Here, you’ll meet with hiring managers and other team members.

Step 5: Get Growing with the NIHF Team

This is our favorite part. If you’re the right person for the position, we’ll present an offer letter and start the onboarding process with a background check, some new hire paperwork and all the organizational information you could ever want.
