    1. Photographer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

      Positive Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Onward Search (New York, NY) in Oct 2023


      The first interview as an easy going phone call but was also up front about role, salary, expectations, etc. After some conversation about my experience and vision as a photographer we moved into discussion about the role and how my skillset would work. I am still waiting to hear on next steps.

      How do you approach managing multiple photography projects at the same time?
