Most of our consultant hiring is done during our summer cycle (June to August). We also run 2-3 additional consulting application cycles at various points in the year. Ultimately, we suggest you apply in a cycle that best aligns with your personal plans and goals. Regardless of which cycle you choose, we encourage you to apply early in the process to allow our team ample time to review your application.
Please email us at [email protected] with any questions.
If you weren’t able to join us live for our 2022 recruiting webinar, please follow this link to view the recording. Additionally, we have recordings from years past – Please follow this link to view the 2021 event, or this link to view our 2020 event. Due to a large number of requests, and the relatively small size of the Redstone team, we regrettably are not able to offer personal 1:1 chats or informational interviews.
This summer and fall, Redstone will recruit Analyst and Intern candidates to start work the following summer. We accept applications from all colleges and universities, and hold recruiting activities from mid-June to August, and then again from September to October.
We accept Analyst candidates who are getting ready to graduate, recent graduates, or experienced professionals who fit the profile for the Analyst position.
A summer internship with Redstone will provide an unmatched experience in social sector consulting. Students who will be one year from graduation during Internship are eligible to apply for a Redstone Summer Internship. Interns will spend 8-9 weeks in our Boulder, CO office where they will participate in team meetings, contribute to real client work, and gain exposure to clients and senior leaders at the firm. They will work side-by-side with other interns and consultants to develop critical thinking, communication, process, and relationship-building skills. At the close of the summer, Interns will be considered for offers of longer-term employment at all Redstone offices. While we are planning to host the internship in person, we will remain flexible to offering an enriching virtual alternative as needed.
First-round interviews for all positions include case questions and general questions related to your experience and goals. Our cases mirror traditional business consulting cases and explore social sector topics. In later rounds, Analyst applicants are asked to submit a writing sample that illustrates an ability to engage in critical thinking, communicate effectively in writing, use evidence (qualitative, quantitative, textual, historical, or other types), and translate research and analysis into clear conclusions.
Also, during a full day of final interviews, Analyst candidates are asked to present on a topic from previous experience (including academic work) that explains the problem, reviews analysis, and finally illuminates some conclusions and larger implications of the project. Redstone will help guide topic choice and provide template slides. You will be evaluated on critical thinking and analysis, structure and logic, presence and presentation of materials, use of visuals, and your ability to engage in a discussion following your presentation.
Demystifying the case interview
The case interview is a simplified simulation of the type of work we do at Redstone. Think of it as an opportunity to learn more about the work we do and to demonstrate how you approach problem-solving. While you should practice and be prepared, it’s not uncommon for this to be someone’s first case interview. If you are receiving an interview, we think you are a highly-qualified candidate with the potential to succeed at Redstone.
There are many resources available to help you prepare for this style of interview–we’ve included a few that we know of in the list below. To prepare for our case interview, we recommend you find a friend and take turns tackling cases in both the interviewee and interviewer roles. As you work through examples, we recommend you practice structuring your answers with clear logic, communicating thoughtfully, and asking many questions.

Due to the large number of requests, and the relatively small size of the Redstone team, we regrettably are not able to offer personal chats, informational interviews or feedback to applicants on their applications. Also, to be considered for employment, applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis. Redstone is unable to sponsor applicants for work visas and thus is unable to consider for employment applicants who will require sponsorship for an employment visa either now or in the future (e.g., H-1B, F1, J-1, OPT STEM extensions).
