I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomsbury (London, England, England) in Jan 2021

The interview was the first of two stages and non-compentency based. Included was a ten-minute test that involved checking over a contract for inconsistencies and typographical errors. This was followed by the actual interview, conducted via MS Teams.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work in Contracts?
  • Scenario: It is the afternoon, and an agent desperately needs their author's contract to be signed by the end of the day, but the editor is away from their desk and nobody knows where they are. What do you do? *Several more queries similar to this*
  • Please outline and explain how you would prioritise daily tasks from a Contracts' perspective?

I interviewed at Bloomsbury

Interview

A very smooth interview process. I did a phone call with the person who would be supervising me. All questions were very standard, no real surprises. I was then given a test where I had to write some tweets (it was for a social media related position).

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomsbury in Apr 2019

Interview

I found their internships on their website and followed the instructions. I received an email from HR less than a week later. The interview was the most awkward interview ever! It wasn't a difficult interview, rather it was very informal. Too informal in my opinion because it felt like they weren't prepared at all. Also, the people I interviewed with seemed to look down on my choice of books I read. They all had fancy previous internships/jobs with large literary presses. I talked to a few other interns who got jobs there and they got it through connections. The interview ended early and I was glad to get out of there. They never contacted me after and I didn't bother contacting them again. I did get a very nice job with nicer people at another publishing house which I'm very happy about.
