How to Apply

Job Search

Start by checking our Open Positions to find a job that suits your qualifications and interests. You can also submit a general application. Check the Firm Overview, Focus Areas, and Projects sections of the site to learn more about who we are and what we do. Subscribe to job alerts to be notified of newly posted positions.

Submit an Application

Send us a résumé that outlines your experience and focuses on the specific position for which you’re applying. Include a cover letter. You can submit materials online by clicking on the link for the open position.

First Interview

Your skills fit the job, and we’d like to learn more about you and tell you more about the position and the firm. The next step is usually a phone interview with human resources.

Second Interview

In the next interview, which is usually done virtually, we’re looking to establish, for architectural and engineering positions, both your technical proficiency and your familiarity with or interest in remedial architecture. Now is the time to show us a portfolio. For administrative, marketing, or financial positions, we aim to assess your interpersonal skills and relevant experience.

Final Interview

If your candidacy advances to the next stage, we will likely follow up with a third interview in-person, this time including senior management.

Hiring Decision

About two to three weeks after the initial phone interview, we will return to you with a hiring decision. Because our employees are the foundation of our reputation, we invest a lot of thought and attention in our hiring process. We want to make sure you’re right for the job—and the job is right for you.

Tips for Applying

Research our company by looking at the pages of our website, and come to the interview prepared. We have a specialized practice, and successful applicants understand exactly what it is we do—and what we don’t.

Know why you’ve applied for the position, and what interests you about the job and about Hoffmann. Familiarize yourself with the posted job description and responsibilities.

Explain any gaps in your résumé. We’d much rather see a cover letter that’s forthcoming about a year or two as a stay-at-home parent than an application which ignores blanks in employment history in the vain hope that we will, too.

Check interviewing and résumé guidelines from sources such as university career centers or job search websites. From organizing your résumé and writing your cover letter to preparing for the interview, these sites can offer helpful, general advice on putting your best foot forward.
