Interview

The recruiter reached out to me to schedule the interview and then 10 minutes before the interview was supposed to happen, they emails me to let me know the position was filled two days prior. So never got to actually interview with the company.

Edelman

Anonymous Employee in London, England, England

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (London, England, England) in May 2021

Interview

Initial phone screening with a lovely recruiter. I was then asked to interview the following week with two Account Directors, and then the week after that with VPs. After the first interview, I was asked to complete a 30 min writing task. The interview with the VPs was significantly more detailed and gave me an opportunity to ask more granular questions about the structure of the team. I would advise people going for interview to emphasise their wins, the KPIs they exceeded, and their unique skills that set them apart from the rest. Be confident and show them that you will be able to be client-facing. The entire process took just over three weeks, however I was assured that this is not normal and that there were a number of diary clashes and people on annual leave. Overall it was fine.

Interview Questions
  • Do you have experience of managing social media? How do you advise clients on their social media?
  • How do you manage client expectations when they suggest campaigns that will not be appropriate for their audiences?
  • What aspects of your role do you enjoy the most?
  • How have you managed work priorities during the pandemic? Have you worked across time zones with international teams before?
  • Have you seen any Edelman campaigns that have inspired you? Why do you want to work for Edelman out of all of the agencies?

Interview

The first step needs to be done as soon as possible after your meeting. You want to try to remember all of the questions that you were asked. This is the time when you want to write down the questions you remember and how you responded. Take all of the notes that you can. The notes will show you what you could have answered better, and they may even give you some insight into your rapport with the hiring manager.

Interview

Writing this review mostly because I want to give props to Amy Nunn, she's an absolute rockstar at talent acquisition and I had a very positive experience with her throughout the entire process. She kept me informed every step of the way and went above and beyond to respond to my questions. I ultimately ended up getting another offer after I accepted the offer with Edelman. She was very understanding and helped facilitate a lot of difficult conversations. While I ultimately didn't go with the offer at Edelman, she was extremely helpful and I appreciated her transparency throughout the process. The only suggestion I have for the company as a whole is to make an offer sooner and cut out the minutiae of having to meet with too many team members. If Edelman had made me an offer sooner in the process, I wouldn't have even entertained the other company's interview process which ultimately led me to choosing them over Edelman. Get good people in the door faster so you don't lose them to competitors.

Interview Questions
  • The interview consisted of very general questions like "What is your team structure?" and "How did you handle a challenging situation?"
