Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hill & Knowlton.

Interview Details – Typically need to know someone to get a foot in the door for an interview. Attend job fairs, networking events and reach out to current/former employees who can pass your resume along to the right person. Once you've landed an interview, share a broad range of interest and experience across accounts at previous jobs. Be eager for the job and personable.

Interview Question – What ethical issues might you have with an account?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I received the position over the phone and was emailed my contract with vacation/salary information by email. I negotiated more money by email after that and received a little bit more than my original offer.
