fall quarter weeks 1-2
We accept written applications every year at the start of Fall Quarter. We have positions open for developers, product managers, and designers, so you can indicate your position preferences here. If you want to chat in person or have questions, come see us at the WOW Club Showcase or send us an email at [email protected]
fall quarter weeks 2 - 4
We will reach out to schedule an interview if your interests and skills match what we are looking for. Don't stress about your interview! We want to get to know you and why you're passionate about joining H4I and our mission. If you are applying for a developer position, we may ask technical questions, but we encourage everyone to apply regardless of experience level.
Notified of decision
mid fall quarter
We will email you when we have reached a decision on your application. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept every student who applies. The number of students in our club is determined by the number of nonprofit projects we take on for the year. However, we are taking on more and more projects and growing the number of students and positions every year.
We love our work because of our amazing members! We host social events so that all of our members can get to know each other and take a break from their school work. We've hosted game nights, events with other clubs, gone on hikes, and taken many trips to Slodoco. We also have a banquet every year to celebrate everyone's hard work.
We start each year off with bootcamp, which is your chance to learn what Hack4Impact Cal Poly is all about! During bootcamp, our members attend workshops and get familiar with the tools they will use on their project team. Throughout the year we also host tech talks and speaker events with professors and other professionals.
We try to learn about our nonprofit partners' missions and work beyond our technical projects as well! We volunteer with every nonprofit we partner with for the year so that each member learns about their work, regardless of their project team. One example of a volunteer event we had was going to plant trees with the Environmental Center of SLO.
