    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CNN.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions were pretty standard. I made it all the way until the last round but they decided to go with an internal candidate, which I hear typically happens. It's harder to get an interview without a connection though. Luckily I had a recruiter in my corner who took time to prep me for the interviews which was amazing!
