Application Process

Once you are ready to apply, you must submit your information through this site in order to be considered for a position with Duff & Phelps.

If we are conducting on-campus interviews at your university, you will also need to apply via their job posting system, so please check with your career services office for details on that process. If you are selected, the next step will be an in-person interview at your university. If we do not conduct in-person interviews at your university, but you meet the qualifications for the open position, you may be interviewed over the phone, via video conference or invited directly into the office for an initial interview. These initial interviews may be conducted by a Senior Associate, Vice President, Director, or Managing Director. If you are selected for a second round interview, this interview generally takes place two to four weeks later in our Duff & Phelps offices.

During your in-office interview, you will meet multiple members of our management group and staff. At this interview, you may be asked to participate in a group case project with other candidates or you may be asked to complete a short technical exercise. You will also spend time with other Analysts, learning what your days would potentially look like as an Analyst with Duff & Phelps. After the in-office interviews, you will be notified of our decision within two to three weeks. Interested? Check out our opportunities.
