    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at WWE (Stamford, CT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First, I had a phone interview for about half an hour with recruitment consultant, Christine Ruzek. Ms. Ruzek was extremely nice and thorough in asking me about my previous experience. Then, I had a phone interview, for about half an hour with director of social media operations, Brent Mosley. Mr. Mosley was also very nice and thorough. I especially enjoyed hearing that he has a strong team he truly enjoys working with. After these two interviews, I received a call from a very happy Ms. Ruzek, offering me the internship position. I immediately accepted the offer with much excitement.
