    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Open University (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in November-2017.

    Interview

    There was a pre-interview campaign writing and artwork exercise, a 65-minute five-member panel interview and a 30-minute exercise to develop content based on a brief for a social media campaign on the day of the interview.
