Once I apply for a 2019 or 2020 undergraduate Summer Internship or Full-Time opportunity, what are typical next steps?

Our recruiting process is designed to help you learn more about Prudential and share your story and experience with us. Our steps include:

  1. Submit your application and digital introduction – Once you submit your application, you may be invited to complete a digital introduction, which is an opportunity for you to bring your story to life with 8 behavioral questions. You only need to complete one digital introduction per recruiting season even if you apply to multiple early talent roles. The digital introduction is required to complete your application, so please complete as soon as you’re able to or before the application period closes.
  2. Participate in a digital first round interview – You may be invited to complete a digital first round interview, with 2 – 3 questions to showcase skills and experienced relevant for the role.
  3. Join us at Prudential for final round interviews – If selected, you’ll join us at Prudential (or virtually) for final round interviews, to learn more about our business, culture and the early talent opportunities available across our organization.

I’ve never participated in an OnDemand digital interview or submitted a digital introduction. How does it work?

With OnDemand interviewing, you can interview at a time and place that best sets you up for success. This virtual interview format allows us to share your story with more members of the Prudential team, moves you through the recruiting process faster and allows us to get to students we might not otherwise have a chance to meet.

Once in the tool, you’ll be greeted by a member of the Prudential team who will provide some background on the organization and some tips for acing the interview. Next, you’ll have an opportunity to test your audio, video and internet connection and complete unlimited practice questions.

Once ready, you’ll be prompted to answer a series of behavioral and some skill related questions by members of the Prudential team. You’ll record your answers, with 30 seconds to prep for each question and two minutes to respond.

For more information on this interview format and tips for success, check out this guide about the digital interview process.

How can I see where I am in the application process?

You can log in to your application portal where you will see any updates. You will also receive email communications throughout the interview process notifying you of your status.
