Many members cite Hilltop as one of their favorite and most formative experiences as an undergraduate at Georgetown University. Along with the unparalleled experience of working with some of the nation's leading nonprofits, members have access to exclusive training sessions and networking opportunities with prestigious firms like McKinsey, Bain, Deloitte, Accenture, and PwC.
There are many opportunities to make an impact in Hilltop, from leading a project to reaching out to prospective clients to completing an independent internal project. Though our members have a diverse range of interests and professional inclinations, all of our members possess strong analytical and communication skills, demonstrate leadership throughout campus, and have a deep commitment to furthering social causes.

SPRING 2021 RECRUITING TIMELINE
Stop by our station at the virtual CAB Fair. This is a great way to learn a little bit more about Hilltop and if you think we’d be a great fit for your Georgetown experience. During this time, you can ask our Board of Directors some questions and pick up some informational material. RSVP here.
Zoom IDs: TBD
Attend one of our information sessions to get a more formal introduction to Hilltop and a detailed overview of our application process. Following the event, our Board of Directors and some general body members will be available to answer any questions you have.
The written application is your chance to tell us a little bit more about yourself and your background. It includes a few short answer questions and a brief written case.
After the written application, candidates chosen to interview are invited to our Case Workshop to help prepare. This will include an overview of what to expect in a case, a demonstration with two of our board members, and some time for attendees to ask questions.
Our Spring 2021 interviews will have two rounds and consist of both behavioral and problem-solving components. Don't be nervous! Ultimately, it's a chance for us to get to know you and for you to prove you'd be a great fit. If you'd like some pointers before your interview, don't hesitate to reach out.
For anyone interested, coffee chats are a chance for you to have a one-on-one meeting with some members of our general body and ask any questions about applying to our organization or their Hilltop experience. These are by no means mandatory and are also not evaluative.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Our teams are our strongest asset as an organization. We capitalize on the power of working together and look for new members who can both provide and listen to new perspectives.
Both in and outside of projects, Hilltop is a second home at Georgetown for our members. Show us what you love outside of your professional and academic interests.

“The hands-on experience in Hilltop is unmatched versus other clubs. Getting to work in a client-facing role right when I joined helped me build skills I wouldn’t have otherwise. The people in Hilltop are also incredible; I can confidently say they’re not just amazing consultants, but they’re also some of my best friends.”

“The professional development at Hilltop has been incredible for me. I didn’t know much about what I wanted to do with my life coming into Georgetown but Hilltop surrounded me with people who helped me find opportunities. Even though I’m not pursuing consulting, I can confidently say I got the most support through Hilltop.”
Project Manager, MSB '22
“I think Hilltop’s community is unique because our members aren’t just in the club to build career skills, it’s an environment that’s filled with fun-loving and intellectually curious people who are passionate about social change. Getting the opportunity to deliver meaningful insights for nonprofit organizations that are changing the world is something Hilltop offers that other clubs don’t, especially for freshmen.”

WHERE HILLTOP CAN TAKE YOU
Hilltop members take the client service and strategy skills they develop with us to some of the world's most prestigious companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations. Many choose to go into consulting as a career because of their experience with Hilltop. Just some of the places Hilltoppers have gone include...
Do I need any prior consulting experience to be in Hilltop?
Most certainly not! Truthfully, we expect candidates not to have any prior consulting experience and many of Hilltop’s members didn’t even know what consulting was when applying.
Is Hilltop only for students in the McDonough School of Business?
I don’t want to pursue consulting long-term. Is Hilltop still a good fit for me?
What does integration, both professionally and socially look like in Hilltop?
How do I prepare for the case interview?
I've applied to Hilltop before. Can I apply again?
Yes and we highly encourage you to do so. Several members of our organization were not accepted the first or even second time they applied to Hilltop.
