Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) in Oct 2014

Interview

3-part interview. First was a phone screening, second was a phone interview, third was in person panel interview where you are to conduct a needs analysis on a fictitious business. During the CNA process, you're to uncover the businesses USP's and use that to leverage a second meeting with the client to present a campaign proposal to them. During the CNA make sure you ask how much business they do, at what quantity are they currently producing or selling X and at what quantity would they like to be at without having to add any more staff to sell their product. This is key, as they use this as as metric to determine budget.
