    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge University Press (Cambridge, East of England, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 25 min interview where we discussed details on my background and some ideas specific to the new job. After a week I was invited for an hour interview where I had the oppurtunity to expand my ideas. It was more an interesting discussion than an interview. At the end I had an hour exercise that was relevant for the job and I did not find difficult. Overall very pleasant. It only took two days to tell me I got the job.

    Interview Questions
