    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Axel Springer (Madrid (Spain)).

    Interview

    The recruitment process wasn't too much strict, and conditions for the start of the recruitment process were clearly defined. I was asked about my personal motivation in a strengths-based interview, which focused on what I enjoy doing and what I do well. Interviewers ask me to describe a situation in which I showed initiative.
