Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oxford University Press (New York, NY (US)) in September 2014.

Interview

Initial phone screen (pretty basic—strengths, weaknesses, reason for applying, etc..), followed a few days later by in-person interviews with first the intern coordinator and, then, about an hour later, the lead editor. Received an offer a week after the in-person interviews. Overall, a pretty standard interviewing process. No major curveballs.
