    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Energy BBDO in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruited at my University for a AAE position but I was candid about wanting a job in planning and they were able to set up interviews for me in their office the next day. Met with 5-6 brand and digital planners and was given an offer on the spot.

    Interview Details

    Was over the phone and pretty pain less. I had been selected through an associate creative director reviewing my work at a portfolio review where they liked my work. To be entirely honest I am filling this space here after to comply with the amount of writing required by this site.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Energy BBDO in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Most applicants apply online, but I knew someone who passed my resume along. The interview process was pretty easy: phone interview with HR, followed by in-person interviews with a woman from HR and members of the team I was going to work on. A few days later the offer was in my hands. Very simple, but it can be different depending on the job you interview for.

    Negotiation was quick: They said they wanted to make me an offer, and asked what salary range I was looking for .

    Planner Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Energy BBDO in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was clear that Energy BBDO leadership feels empowered to find a place for someone who they see potential in. After my initial interview with the department head, we talked about what a job might look like, what their needs were and how my skills would add value. I had an offer elsewhere so pushed them to get things moving, and they were responsive. In all, I sat down with probably eight people. Loved them. The people were the most appealing aspect of the job.

    Reasons for Declining

    Comp offer was terrible. I wasn't expecting that much, but the offer really blew me away. Plus, I didn't really want to market pharmaceuticals.
