Please describe the interview / hiring process.
The interview process at Dow Jones was incredibly easy. It is all behavioral questions read off of a script. The employees are friendly, but the work seems very repetitive. I thought the research associate position was going to allow me to dive deep into the financing of VC backed companies, but it was actually just a job where you called for information. Disappointing. The skills test just makes sure you are detail oriented. Triple check each step at the end. For example, one question asked me to end a title with no period. Make sure you do not put the period.
