    From the first interview to an offer was approx. 1.5-2 months. Because I was away at school I completed my first interview over the phone and the second interview over Skype. The people who I spoke with were very friendly, welcoming, and seemed thoroughly interested in my answers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sony Music Entertainment (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Typical interview process with a record label. What I didn't like was the "rejection" process. After the interview the person who interviewed me said that I should hear back by the end of the week whether I got the position or not. Even after a follow-up email, no contact was made to actually tell me that I wasn't hired for the position
