WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
In an effort to demystify our recruitment process, we would like to provide a summary of what we are looking for in applicants for SWIB's programs. ELP is open to all class years, majors, and experience levels. We are looking for candidates who are intellectually curious and bring diverse perspectives to our organization. Our Analysts and Associates share SWIB's values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and female empowerment. We strongly value candidates' enthusiasm about SWIB and our mission. Selected members demonstrate thoughtful reflection about their interests and past experiences. Our goal is ultimately to foster an inclusive community for women at Cornell!
