    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at News Corp.

    Interview

    Quite informal but with a few of the cliche questions thrown in. Followed by a 'personal fit' chat. Took longer than expected - a couple of hours. Felt welcome throughout, however. Office seemed very quiet - people appeared to be working hard, who knows what they were actually doing! Got a call back almost straight after with a job offer.
