    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Routledge (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, 1:1 with an editor. You're given a editing test, spelling test, an exercise on how to prioritize a list of tasks, and you discuss it with the editor as a way of outlining what the day-to-day of the job is, as well as the long term goals of whatever list you're working on. Took an edit test home -- had to write back cover copy for a book.

    Would recommend familiarizing yourself with the subject area of what you'd be working on, and with higher ed news generally.
