    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Records (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Participated in multiple phone interviews with Human Resources about 2 weeks apart. Was contacted afterwords by a hiring manager for a more specific interview relating to the type of work I would be doing once in the position. Discussed my application, my reasons for applying, my qualifications for the job and my overall interest in pursuing a career in the music industry.
