    Broadcast News Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Weta (Arlington, VA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The PBS NewsHour conducts a phone interview where the hiring manager asks candidates about their goals, their qualifications and interest in the position and the program. The company will conduct a current events news quiz which is extremely difficult and a test of your knowledge regarding the PBS NewsHour program by phone. This is all basic knowledge. I passed all tests and was not hired by the PBS NewsHour and WETA. This position is not for aspiring tv news reporters, anchors, nor producers. You will not get a demo reel with WETA and PBS NewsHour. The PBS NewsHour's news assistant program for broadcast, digital/online, and social media are extremely competitive for undergraduate college graduates and graduate students.

    For aspiring television news reporters, news anchors, multi-media journalists(MMJ) and news producers out there, the PBS NewsHour neither provide none of its employees the opportunity to make a news anchor reel tape, a news reporter reel tape, and/or news producer reel tape. The PBS NewsHour does neither have the money, the equipment nor resources available. Find another news assistant position at another news media company as the PBS NewsHour does not provide this.

    It is very difficult to be admitted into the news assistant programs (broadcast, digital/online, and social media) as it is very competitive. The PBS NewsHour will not inform applicants specifically why they weren't accepted and why their application has been declined. This program and this company constantly suffer from budget cuts on a consistent, regular basis. The PBS NewsHour has limited resources for all candidates/applicants and all employees.
