Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2012.

Interview

Initial communication: A networking event of senior editors and past trainees. Application online in December, including two writing samples (one had to be a 'vox pop' interview article). Followed by an online writing test (editing 1 news article, writing an article from given information, and creating headlines and leads based on given word limits and info) in March. This was followed by a panel interview. In the interview, they asked questions like:
- Why should we hire you?
- If you could interview anyone in Asia, who would it be?
- What do you understand by budget deficits, and name 2 countries with budget deficits.
- What questions would you ask the provisional leaders if the North Korean govt was overthrown?
- Name 5 countries that will impact the world's economy

Interview Questions

  • What is your understanding of budget deficits? What should a government that faces them do?   Answer Question
  • What are two challenges that confronts Asia in the next century?   Answer Question
