    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers and management, many of whom are long-term, dedicated employees. The Voice still, against all odds and interference from upper management, manages to hit it out of the park on occasion.

    Cons

    Off-site executive team really is less than worthless. They have basically gutted what was once a temple of investigative reporting

    Advice to Management

    Let the editor steer the ship...stay far, far away from any and all editorial decisions. Please, I beg of you!

    Application

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

    Interview

    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
