    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penguin Random House (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone call with the HR person, and then went in to meet the person I would be reporting to. She gave me a writing assignment for a title. Then I met with some more senior people at a second interview. Overall, it took about three weeks. Even though some imprints can be casual, make sure to dress sharply, have a notebook, and come prepared with questions of your own.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, it was the standard stuff. Just be personable and knowledgable about the imprint.   Answer Question
