    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Rowman & Littlefield Publishing.

    Interview Details

    HR will generally set up with a phone interview with the managing editor. If they like you, they'll bring you in for an in-person interview. I was hired rather quickly as the current employee was leaving the country and only had a few days to train me. There's a high rate of turnover, so if you're not selected for a particular opening, there's a good chance you can reapply in the near future for another position.
