What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Penguin Random House?
Come prepared. Bring multiple resumes. Have interview questions written out and ready. Appear organized. Take the time to do your research on the imprint/department/team ahead of time and ask thoughtful questions. Wear a suit even if things have become more casual. I'm a little old school for a millenial.
