    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They require a video submission, an essay, and multiple interviews. Be prepared to put effort into your application. This is not a position that you can submit your resume and tweak a generic cover letter for. The actual interview questions are pretty standard, but it takes a while to get to that point.
