Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman.

Interview

I applied online for a position through a job posting website and on the company's website.. After a week without receiving a response from the recruiter, I was able to get in touch through a network connection and schedule a phone screening. Phone screening lasted about 45 minutes and consisted of me telling my story and explaining my resume, followed by the recruiter telling me more about the position. Didn't hear anything for almost a month before I repeatedly followed up and was informed that the position was filled, but there was another position the company would like to discuss with me. I was brought in a few days later for about two hours and met separately with a few different pairs of supervisors and managers, each from different teams. The questions directed to me were mostly centered on my resume, experience, and media relationships, but I was given plenty of opportunity to ask my own questions of them. About two weeks later I was asked to submit a writing sample and was offered a position the following day.

    Interview

    I was brought in to interview for multiple jobs spanning the companies various practices. I went through to the final round for each interview, having great conversations with the multiple people I was interviewed by for each different position. Had clear communication about expectations of the role only to be told at the end they hired someone else. When asking for feedback it was extremely vague or the complete opposite of what I was told they were looking for in a candidate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Edelman (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    A person in HR reached out to me on LinkedIn about a position in the Sacramento office. The process started with a phone screen with the HR person who reached out to me in mid-October. About a week after that, I got a message from them saying that they were delaying hiring for that position until the next year. When I saw the position posted again in December I re-applied and reached out to the HR person again. Had a second phone screening with them. Set up a a series of three one on one in person interviews.
