    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at MediaNews in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    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.
