Mission: U.S. News & World Report is a publisher of news and information that empowers people to make better, more informed decisions about important issues affecting their lives.
Some very talented people working here, who will no doubt teach you a few things. I was also given plenty of opportunity to express my career goals and move into new roles. Management took a couple leaps of faith and allowed me to jump outside what I was comfortable with. I also felt like my direct bosses understood the work we did and were willing to go to bat for us.
It's no secret that traditional journalism has fallen on hard times. Sometimes you end up working on projects that change endlessly while the folks at the top figure things out.
Advice to Management
Try to find the company's niche and expand on it. Don't waste resources on projects that are essentially doomed from the start.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. News & World Report (Washington, DC).
First did a phone screen with the HR representative. She was very helpful and responsive to my questions. Next it was on to a phone interview with the technical lead. Then it was on to in-person interviews, where I spoke with six people, mostly individually. I interviewed with mostly technical people, but a couple of general managers as well. I was also able to name my start date after accepting their offer, which was great.
