    Application

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

    Interview

    Interviewed with a hiring manager for a screening call and then with a Publicist at an imprint. The interview was pretty long and I was asked many of the standard interview questions as well as general questions related to my interests in books and knowledge of media/marketing. It was a phone interview.
