    Junior Digital Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ketchum (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online then did not hear back for a month and a half. Finally heard from HR about scheduling a phone screening which went well, so I was asked to come in for in person interviews with two of the associate creative directors. The interviews lasted about a half hour each and were very painless and pleasant. One of the associates even told me I was her favorite candidate for the job that she had met with. I left feeling very confident that the job would soon be mine. I sent thank you emails to everyone I met with. HR said they got "very positive feedback" from the people I had met with, and she would be in touch soon to discuss "next steps." After that I did not hear from anyone at Ketchum for about two months. I later emailed HR after I received an offer from a different firm, just out of curiosity, to which I was told that they did not have any openings available at that time. I was strung along for three months by them, and then they did not even have the decency to tell me they selected another candidate. Hindsight I am glad I am not working at Ketchum because I am now at a job with actual standards of professional etiquette and human decency and I am much happier.
