  • With the announcement of Cision Impact, our customers will be able to report the ROI of their earned media.

    How Cision® Impact Measures Earned Media

    The measurement of earned media needs a change. Compared with their paid media counterparts - who are able to report on exactly how each digital ad affected revenue, as well as definitive information about the audience the ad reached - earned media's metrics often don't stack up.

  • Cision unveils the Cision Communication Cloud™!

    Welcome to the Future of Earned Media Communications | Cision

    It wouldn't quite be accurate for me to write that "earned media is back," because to many communicators, it never actually left. In fact, 81 percent of marketers view earned media as more than or equally effective as paid media.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cision (Cleveland, OH).


    I interviewed at the Cleveland office and had an awful experience. The employees seemed miserable. The receptionist was unbelievably rude and condescending, and the interviewers seemed bored and disinterested from the start. It was a complete waste of my time and I’d never recommend this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked a lot about what I knew about Cision and PR Newswire. I understand as a potential candidate, it’s my responsibility to come prepared, which is why I did my research ahead of time - but it felt like they were quizzing me and getting way too specific. It’s THEIR job as well to inform me and educate me about the company, yet any time I asked a question, I got a broad, round-about response that in no way answered my question.   Answer Question
