    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SHIFT Communications (San Francisco, CA).


    I submitted my resume, and then received a follow-up email requesting an interview in their SF office. I was interviewed one-on-one by three different people, all of whom were very gracious in giving useful advice for getting into PR and feedback on my interview responses. Following the interview, I had to complete two writing exams, one writing a summary and one writing a press release. The office as a whole was very friendly.
