    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wall Street Journal.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email. From there I was scheduled to come in within a few days to interview. The interview seemed to go well, everyone was friendly and I was able to show how I could fit into their current workflow. After my interview, I was given an assignment. I responded to the assignment well within the allotted time and with clear, thorough answers.

    I was told I would hear something within a week. I never heard back so I reached out. I was given a reason for delays (illness, busy, etc), but was told that I would hear from them soon. After a few weeks, I reached out again and didn't receive a response. A few more weeks went by and I reached out again.. still no response.

    I think it's fine that I wasn't selected, but I think it's unprofessional to completely ignore a candidate who made the time to come in and complete an assignment. The least thing any employer could do is send an email saying that they went with someone else.
