    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at News America Marketing (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and then received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was approximately 20-30 minutes long. I was then offered to come in for an in-person interview at their NYC Headquarters. The in-person interview process consisted of 4 30 minute interviews. If you have previous experience in a sales role and can relate it back to the position at NAM, you will do well. If not, just be sure to know why you want to work in sales!
