Congratulations on applying to a Disney Professional Internship! You’ve taken the first step to finding your place at The Walt Disney Company! Here is a bit of what to expect now that you’ve applied to one or more positions:
First and foremost, check your dashboard regularly. This is where you will find the most up to date information on your applications including any status changes.
Keep in mind that each internship here at Disney is unique and fills different needs. That being said, some positions may take less time to fill than others – it can depend on anything from the start date of the position, the hiring leader’s schedule, or the workload of the recruiter; for some, you may talk to a hiring leader in the process early on, for others, you might sit in the ‘Under Review’ or ‘In Consideration’ status for a bit longer before action is taken. The important thing to remember that unless your dashboard status says ‘no longer in consideration’, you are still being considered for the role(s). In general, you can expect the process to take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. We’ll do our best to keep you updated.
Here are some of the statuses you may see and what they mean:
Under Review – You are an active candidate in the candidate pool, being reviewed by a recruiter, or being reviewed by a manager.
In Consideration – You are currently being considered for the position whether through a phone screen with the recruiter, or internal conversations between the recruiter and the manager
Interview – You are being scheduled for an interview (this can be in person, via phone, or over video)
Good luck with your application journey!
