College and University Recruiting

At ICF International, we hire recent graduates who are eager to apply their academic knowledge toward complex business issues.



A career at ICF International will allow you to widen your horizons by gaining client exposure, interacting with industry experts, and building and developing your business and consulting skills, while you work in an environment of talented and passionate individuals. And what better way to jump-start your career than with a dynamic organization whose impact on society is in a "for-profit" environment?

In addition to competitive salaries and benefits, ICF supports staff development in a variety of ways. Your new career will benefit from on-the-job training, our award-winning Professional Development Program, and company support to attend professional conferences and seminars.

Take the next step. If we are not visiting your campus this year, we may have opportunities posted on your career center's website, and you may also submit your resume online (select "College Recruiting" in the Job Field drop-down menu).

Why I Wanted to Work for ICF

I was drawn to the multidisciplinary nature of ICF. Our projects often require an understanding of a range of perspectives—economic, social, and cultural—that I found quite attractive.

What I Find Most Rewarding

I enjoy seeing the impact of the work we do, as it often relates to current events from national debates on climate change to Hurricane Sandy. Seeing how our work fits into that larger picture is very exciting.

My Message for Recent Grads

Take time with your job search. Consider your passions and skills and how they can fit into a meaningful career.

Why I Wanted to Work for ICF

I admired how ICF’s work helps eliminate the negative impacts of social issues. I also liked the direct involvement with clients.

What I Find Most Rewarding

I like helping grantees directly with technical or program issues. They are very appreciative and it’s rewarding to assist people who are facing hardships like homelessness.

Three Things I Wish I Knew

  • Don’t expect to be excellent at everything you do in the beginning—especially in your first job
  • Save your money, and
  • Achieving a good work/life balance takes time.
