    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Ketchum.

    Knowing people within the company, the interview process was robust, but casual. I met with multiple people from HR and individuals from every department that I would work with in the future. The interviews turned into a consulting opportunity which led to full time employment almost four months later.

    Public Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ketchum in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    While the process took longer than other interviews I've had, the staff at Ketchum was transparent (as much as possible, anyway) throughout several rounds of interviews. They were flexible in finding the right practice group and position. Even the more junior staff with whom I interviewed came prepared with smart questions about my experience and management style. The office takes new hires seriously, so come prepared to answer detailed questions about your experience and what you would add to the team.

    Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ketchum in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Several rounds of interviews, starting with a phone interview.

    Negotiation Details
    There is a LOT of up-selling and bait-and-switch. Make sure that the position you accept is the one you were originally offered. Many people at Ketchum have VP titles, so don't assume you will have a managerial position just because your title sounds like one. In fact, don't assume that the job description you read even matches the actual position offered.
