    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    The process itself was normal: it included a phone screening and an in-person interview with two people. I was told I'd receive feedback by end of week. I followed up with customary thank-yous, but was ghosted (I was surprised because they appeared to be more of a traditional organization).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. A day or two later I got an email to interview with HR. I then had a 2nd round interview with 2 VPs. The last interview was a timed 1-hour writing assessment. The whole process took about 3 and a half weeks. I was nervous because I didn't hear back after the writing assessment for over a week, but was thrilled nonetheless when I get offered the job. The HR lady was very professional and cordial throughout the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edelman (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    I was first screened by a recruiter and then had an in-person interview. The whole process took a couple months. When I went for an in person interview I was interviewed by two separate people back to back. Unfortunately, I was told they would contact me either way, but I never heard back from anyone even after reaching the in-person stage. Other than that it was a great experience, it was my first interview out of college and I think it was great practice for me.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edelman (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    I was selected after submitting my resume and cover letter online and had an interview at the offices with three different people who worked there. The interview was fairly informal and they did not ask any questions that were too difficult. Truly felt like a conversation rather than an interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position through a job posting website and on the company's website.. After a week without receiving a response from the recruiter, I was able to get in touch through a network connection and schedule a phone screening. Phone screening lasted about 45 minutes and consisted of me telling my story and explaining my resume, followed by the recruiter telling me more about the position. Didn't hear anything for almost a month before I repeatedly followed up and was informed that the position was filled, but there was another position the company would like to discuss with me. I was brought in a few days later for about two hours and met separately with a few different pairs of supervisors and managers, each from different teams. The questions directed to me were mostly centered on my resume, experience, and media relationships, but I was given plenty of opportunity to ask my own questions of them. About two weeks later I was asked to submit a writing sample and was offered a position the following day.
