    Interview

    You have to fill out a current events test that asks specific questions about things that are going on. Local and national questions count, also be aware of local geography and major landmarks. There was also a writing test. I had to write two VOs and two VOSOTs and a tease for each of them.

    Three rounds of interviews, mostly with staff from the show. The interviews involved news of the day topics, as well as technical things, like familiarity with iNews and email. It was an entry level job, so there were questions about why we want to work for the company, etc.

    Only had one phone interview - No face to face interview. Didn't get back to me about the position until I followed up via email. They had a decent program and placed you where they thought was best suited for your needs. Easy interview, usual questions about skills/likes/dislikes and experiences. Study the company beforehand.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at FOX News.

    Interview

    The phone interview was pretty straight forward. It lasted about 15 minutes long, with questions ranging from my academic background to my professional career goals. The interview request came about two weeks after I initially applied. Personally, the interview felt a bit rushed and I didn't really feel any personal connection with the interviewer.
