    Their best hires are talented and amiable, so be both. References mean a lot. They've hired both cub reporters and experienced editors during my time there. The interview is friendly, professional, between colleagues.

    Account Executive Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MediaNews in August 2008.

    Interview

    The overall interview process was pretty intense. It took 6 months to finally get an interview. Once I did I met with the Sales Mgr first, then VP of Advertising and finally the Publisher, all in about 2 hours. This is a tough cookie to crack, especially one with zero advertising experience! Needless to say, the interview was extremely difficult. I APPRECIATE THE PROCESS AND LOOK BACK ON IT WITH A GREAT SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT.
