    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Pearson.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who'd seen my resume floating around and she connected me with the Editor I came to work for. The interviewing process was seamless--they were both very impressed with previous editorial experience. The editor was unexpectedly enthusiastic about previous sales experience, as he felt EAs should transition into sales positions.

    Interview Questions
    • The editor I interviewed with was very interested in previous sales experience, almost trying to sell me on a Sales career before I entered Editorial.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was very little wiggle room as far as compensation packages go.
