    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Edelman in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had an interview with the deputy managing director for an internship in their Barcelona office. After a few days I was offered the position as an intern & set up my start date. The interview was centered around getting to know my background and gauging if I had the writing abilities and overall knowledge and to do well within the company. I suggest doing your fair share of research on Edelman and the companies they work with. Questions and discussion topics were heavily rooted in understanding Edelman, their culture, how they're different than advertising firms, and what they can do for their clients. The interviewer was kind and made me feel comfortable throughout the process!

    Interview

    I applied online then a few weeks later got an email to set up a preliminary HR interview. Then the next day had a Skye interview with one of the Directors. They were really nice and willing to talk and answer questions. I followed up a few weeks later and always got an immediate response. However they took longer than they said to send out offers.

    Interview

    The interview process at Edelman Berland was relatively quick and easy. I was brought into the office and had 4 in person interviews some consisting with just one employee and others with two employees. They were mostly fit and personality based questions in addition to why the industry and why the company specifically and any relevant experience or coursework.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview for the internship was strenuous. It involved a phone screening initially and was then followed by four in-person interviews. It was never made abundantly clear who I was interviewing with, the interviewers introduced themselves too quickly and always seemed rushed. Only one of them had reviewed my resume prior to the interview. Overall, everyone in the office that I interacted with appeared stressed, uninterested, and even disorganized. There was no enthusiasm for their internship program.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Through the online career portal, I submitted my resume and cover letter and answered a few basic questions. I was contacted by a recruiter about a week later to schedule a time to come in for an interview. The interview itself was very straightforward - the recruiter asked me to walk through my resume and then threw some simple behavioral questions my way. Nothing in the interview was out of the ordinary. I received an offer about six weeks later.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with a recruiter and the following interview was split into several people working on the team I will work with. The initial interview was over Skype and very brief, more of a "get to know you" type interview. The following interviews with team members were more comprehensive on my skills and what I would work on.
