What exactly are they (Harper Collins Publishers) looking for in an employee, assistant publicist?
They are looking for the best. People who are deeply committed to the work they do and the industry they are in. Putting out uncompromising product and pushing the boundary of innovation in product development, process and communication with our consumers.
The interview process was long. I applied for the job in February. I had my first phone interview in April. I met with the hiring manager at a convention location in May. I had additional phone interviews with members of the staff in May and June. I was flown in to have a day-long onsite interview and a tour of the area with a local realtor in July. I was offered the job in late July and started in September (to accommodate relocation). The interview process may have changed since my departure.
Very likely. They are looking for the best in their fields and if they are in another state they are open to that.
What is the payday schedule (weekly?) and which day of the week is it? If I start in October this year, what date would be my first paycheck?
Paychecks were received bi-weekly. If using direct deposit, expect pay to be deposited into your bank account by midnight of the day prior to pay day.
