    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The E.W. Scripps Company (Cincinnati, OH)

    Interview

    It was a very smooth and stress free processes I’ve ever been apart of. Scripps is such and elite company around the Cincinnati area, so when I was going through this process I was imagining long interviews, super long process of waiting, and just worrying about the worst. However, this process was amazing. Everyone was so nice, and excited to meet me and open to my questions. I loved the energy that I was given within the interview process as well as the in the interview itself. Kiera Moore was a big help throughout this process, and is very informative as well as kind. She explained the role perfectly, and I am excited to be apart of the Scripps team.
