    Social Media Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with a coordinator and a director. Very informal. Was wearing a suit and felt overdressed. Asked why I was interested in social media, favorite movies, etc. Got the feeling this position was more personality-based than skills based - as in, they were looking for someone who would click with the team. The coordinator had previously had that internship, so that does seem to encourage the idea that these internships could have potential for a full-time paying job.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume (no cover letter) through their employment webpage I was called for an interview a few days later. After the interview I was told I'd have to do a second interview which would take the next week. Both interviews were over the phone and both lasted about half an hour. The last interviewer said she'd get back to me about whether or not I'd gotten the internship within a week but I never heard from them again.
