Looks good on your resumeCons
No one talks to you as an intern and most days I just sat there with absolutely nothing to do. They think their intern program is amazing, but HR was completely disorganized, and no one knew how to make their interns useful. I spent most of my summer staring at a cubicle wall under artificial lighting.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Give the interns actual projects and tasks and organize their luncheons better.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Cambridge University Press in September 2014.Interview Details
Normal application online - cover letter and CV. Two interviews in total, both face-to-face. First one was general getting-to-know you kind of questions. Second one involved doing a presentation on a project I'd run and many more in-depth questions than the first interview.
The people seemed like a really nice bunch. Friendly, social, easy to get on with. In contrast, the office building itself was a bit dreary. As expected, the work culture definitely more towards the academic than a fast-paced corporated environment.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- Questions asked about other previous projects and what they involved, what difficulties were encountered, how they were overcome, how I influence others, how I deal with conflicting objectives and how I go about prioritising work. Answer Question
1. They seem to run along very traditional project management lines - less innovative and creative that I would get on with. 2. The salary was 20% down on what would be typical market rate (they offer 30-33k).Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
