    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acuris (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    After applying online, a regional editor phoned me and we had a short discussion on why I was interested in the job. From there, the interview process was turned over to senior editorial leaders who asked more pointed questions about the financial markets, my journalism experience and they presented various hypothetical news situations.

    Interview Questions

    • They presented scenarios in which a CEO might say something about his/her company's strategy. I was then asked to come up with follow-up questions for the hypothetical CEO. The interviewer wants the journalist prospect to demonstrate he or she can draw more enlightening information from a CEO who is only answering questions with fiduciary statements.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Acuris in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was long. It involved a test and writing a story. It didn't prove useful to figure out what kind of job it was anyway. They should have mentioned that the job would involve enduring abuse at the hands of managers.

    • How did you get the information you got for the test story?   1 Answer
