What happens at a Backstage Interview?

On the day and time of your interview you will log into NYT’s online studio. In this space you will meet (digitally) with your NYT interviewer and another representative from NYT. You will spend about 20 minutes with your interviewer, in a one-to-one session. You will need to prepare at least one task for the interview.
