Selection Process


Applicants must submit all application components by December 18, 2022 at 11:59 pm. After an initial review, applicants are notified whether they will advance to the interview event by email on January 5, 2023. Invited candidates must confirm their attendance at the mandatory interview event by January 12, 2023.


Candidates attend the mandatory interview event hosted by Seed between January 23 – February 3. The in-person event will follow COVID protocols, depending on local conditions at the time. This may involve wearing masks, social distancing, or requiring proof of vaccination and/or a recent negative COVID test. Candidates will receive details regarding COVID protocols, requirements and accommodations prior to the event.


Seed staff match candidates with employers using application materials and interview event feedback. Selected candidates are notified whether they have been matched for an official employer interview by email on a rolling basis between February 8 – March 1. Due to the fluid nature of matching and working alongside our employer partners to coordinate final interviews, this window may be extended.


Employers will reach out directly to candidates to coordinate interviews between March 6 – 31. Candidates may be matched to interview with up to three employers. Candidates who do not advance to employer interviews are notified by April 28.

*2023 dates will be finalized at the end of August and are subject to change.
