Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in Feb 2021

Interview

First had a phone screening with a recruiter, then moved on to interview with 4 team members back to back and then moved on to interview with a 5th team member--didn't get the position but had positive feedback so they suggested a different role for me and then it was the same process. They also kept telling me that I would have to do a "test" but they never did. Interviews varied by person but I would say they are more on the conversational side.

Interview Questions
  • What is your favorite beauty brand? What is one word that describes you? If you were a brand what brand would you be? Tell me about yourself. Do you have any media relations experience? If you had to build a media list right now for "X" client who would you add to the list?

One very straightforward, logistics-based 10-15 minute screening call with an HR rep, followed by 4 30 minute interviews with different members of the team I was applying to. No questions too out of the ordinary, but some interviewers were a bit awkward and hard to read

Average Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in Dec 2018

Interview

I was referred to Edelman by a former colleague who worked there before. I was reached out by recruitment and had a phone screening. I was then invited in to meet 3 members of the department and everyone was super friendly and the interview wasn't super formal. At the end, the recruiter said she wouldn't leave me hanging and would notify me by end of the week the next steps. (This was before the holidays so I wasn't expecting a decision made by them yet anyway) I emailed her after the interview the next day to thank her for having me in. By end of the week, I hear nothing but the holidays were next week so I would probably hear back the next week, right? I follow up the Friday after the holidays and got a bounceback "out of office". No problem. A week goes by and I follow up again kindly asking if I'm still in consideration since I am actively interviewing and would like to know. I knew there were looking to hire in January because they told me. I still have not heard back and I know this is a large company who interviews many candidates but leaving someone hanging is very unprofessional. A simple email saying I'm no longer in for consideration would be fine- especially when that is your job to follow up with candidates. I had high expectations from this company and was really impressed by the team but I am disappointed that I wasn't even given a simple email after 3 follow-ups.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in Sep 2018

Interview

I applied online. A day or two later I got an email to interview with HR. I then had a 2nd round interview with 2 VPs. The last interview was a timed 1-hour writing assessment. The whole process took about 3 and a half weeks. I was nervous because I didn't hear back after the writing assessment for over a week, but was thrilled nonetheless when I get offered the job. The HR lady was very professional and cordial throughout the interview process.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Walk me through your resume.
  • Describe your PR experience.
  • Writing assessment was along the lines of "find a current PR campaign and explain why it was successful or unsuccessful. "
