    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fort Worth Star-Telegram (Fort Worth, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Upon getting to the building, I met with my main interviewer. After spending about 20 minutes with him discussing my resume and portfolio, I met with the person who would be my direct supervisor. After that, I met with about six other editors one-on-one, who told me about the processes of the paper and what was to be expected of me, if I got the job.

    Interviewed for rotational AE position. Applied on a career website and was called back that day or the next morning (can't remember which).
