    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Village Voice as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working directly under the art director, huge focus on learning the industry of newspaper photography, on your own for a good amount of the work (out of the office).

    Cons

    Unpaid, kind of feel alone at times

    Photography Inter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Village Voice in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume, portfolio and cover letter and didn't receive an email back, so I had assumed I didn't get the position. Then, unexpectedly I got a call on a weeknight evening that basically ended up being a phone interview. I was given no heads up to anyone even calling me and was caught extremely off guard. The interview itself was barely an interview, more of the man critiquing the work I sent him endlessly, with none of the advice actually being helpful. In the end he told me that I needed to do more projects (which is absurd, seeing that I am a photography student and spend all of my time at school doing projects) and to let him know. It was a strange 'interview' and I had no idea how to react to it, so I chose to not contact him back.

    Interview Questions
    • As with most art interviews, the most difficult question for me was what I see myself doing with photo in the future, mostly because it's not easy for me to personally answer.   Answer Question
