(Jessica Liebman on businessinsider.com) – I’ve been Business Insider’s Managing Editor for nearly a year now. A big part of my job is recruiting; since we’re a fast-growing company, we’re constantly looking for new talent, from interns to site leads.
I’ve estimated that between career fairs and in-office interviews, I’ve interviewed over 150 people. This doesn’t count phone interviews, which I usually do one or two of every day.
To be fair, most people come prepared.
I’ve been particularly impressed with the graduates of Syracuse University’s Newhouse school. They come with sharp ideas, crisp resumes, and sometimes even a folder with “Business Insider” printed on it to hold extra copies of their clips. (I’m happy to report that we have four Newhouse alums at Business Insider, all of whom were amazing hires.)
