The process took 2 days – interviewed at Incline Marketing (Seattle, WA) in June 2010.
After submitting a cover letter and a resume, I received an e-mail to schedule a phone interview on a Friday. I appreciated the digital notification, as many employers simply call and give impromptu interviews. After answering a series of questions on my experience and the standard marketing internship interview questions, I was invited for a 1:1 interview.
At the 1:1 interview, it was a bit more difficult. It was a different interviewer (the other half of the small company) and he asked a series of questions to gain familiarity on my background. Then, he said we were going to do a case test around the idea of starting a new business. I was excited because I had done a lot of case competitions. However, it was a bit difficult to figure out what information he was seeking, so I didn't do well and the interview essentially ended after that portion.
While that piece was difficult, he offered great advice for my future interviews, which I appreciated a lot. Additionally, he offered advice on one way I could grow my marketing career, which I always value since I'm young and still trying to figure out where to take my marketing degree. You could tell that he and the internship would've been a great mentoring experience.

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Incline Marketing in May 2010.
Be prepared for vague case style interview. First interview was a phone interview, followed by an office interview, then two 1 on 1s, then a final more relaxed interview over happy hour. There was a lot of emphasis on team cohesion and work ethic.
