    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kirkus Media.

    Interview

    There was no interview process, per se. Instead, an editor asked me to write a mock review in the Kirkus style, using a book I had recently read. I received various examples and guidelines to go by, and then the editor replied several weeks later with feedback (I believe he was out of town, hence the slow response). After resubmitting my review and the editor approved, I received my first book review assignment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Kirkus has a standard freelance contract--no negotiating, though they do offer slightly more money for more time-consuming books.
