    Applied online and they got back to me via email letting me know that I had made it to the next round. Next round was answering questions from a form they sent about the best PR campaign I had seen and I would be a good fit for the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ketchum.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed by the sustainability and pr groups of the company for a sustainability internship. Pleasant and nice staff who asked high quality questions about my experiences, which were not traditional because I have a background in science rather than pr or business.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ketchum in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted via email for a phone interview after application. Went through two rounds of interviews. Interviewers very positive and supportive. Even if it was phone interviews, they were very conversational. Very efficient communication. Although I was not selected in the end, I felt being respected and might go back and apply with them again.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ketchum in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very long and very drawn out. There were a few rounds of interviews, followed by a press release contest, as well as an online video contest. In the final interview, the team sounded generally disinterested in hiring.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ketchum in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (resume, cover letter, essays, the whole long process.), and they called me because they liked my cover letter. The interviewer was very complimentary, almost to a fault. He gave me a false sense of security and spoke as if I had already landed the internship--praising my answers, sounding impressed, agreeing with everything I said, etc. And he didn't sound a year older than me.
    After the interview, he said I'd be hearing back from him in within the next week for a second interview, but the next communication I received was a rejection email. All it said was that they were looking for someone with more experience. I found that strange, since I was applying to a summer internship position.
