    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wieden + Kennedy (HQ).

    Interview

    I was contacted about an opening at W+K by a recruiter and quickly dove into the interview process. She and I had a quick phone chat discussing my experience and it was only a week or so later that I found myself in Portland to meet with the team. They were all outgoing and personable. I had prepared thoughtful responses to all the typical interview questions but was surprised at how little they asked. It was almost as if they were sitting back and waiting for me to talk for the full 5 hours without any prompts. That said, the interviews went well and I left feeling confident. I sent a thank you note and several follow ups/voicemails checking in after the interview. It was weeks before I got a response that they had already filled the position. Additionally, I was never reimbursed for the travel expenses they offered to cover.
