Application Details/Preparation

The application process takes a considerable amount of preparation. Please look through the entire application to understand what is required of you before you officially begin submitting it.

We recommend that you prepare the following items prior to beginning your application for submission:

  1. Leadership Involvement: You will be asked to provide details about how you have grown/developed leadership qualities throughout your involvement in extracurricular activities, service, and work/internship experiences. Please limit responses to 250 words or less for each section.
  2. Essay Question: Assume you are given $10,000 by the Huntsman Family as an investment in your education. Explain your return on their investment. (250 words or less)
  3. HireVue Video Interview: For your required video interview submission we are using a service called HireVue. You will need to be prepared to answer three questions using your computer or device so be sure you have both video and audio capabilities before starting. The system does a great job at giving you some practice questions and tutorials before you begin. Remember that you must submit both a HireVue Video Interview and an application (see below).
