Thank you for your interest in working for Media Matters!
As a first step, we would like you to take this assessment which will allow us to review your experience and linguistic & analytic skills.
The assessment will consist of a couple of sections. First you will be asked a couple of general questions about your background and experience. Then you will get a few questions about the media analysis industry. This is followed by a section in which you are asked to to write summaries of news articles, which also includes some questions that will test your understanding of the text. In total, the assesment will take about 30-45 minutes
If you pass the assessment, a member of the team will be in touch with you to discuss follow-up steps.
Thank you and good luck!
