Assistant Account Executive Interview

Assistant Account Executive
New York, NY

Interviewed at Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners

Interview Details – Very nice people. Met with the hiring manager first, followed by an Account Executive, and finally the Account Director. They were all very easy to talk to and seemed like great people to work with. The agency looked like a very cool place to work. I would definitely try again to work here.

Interview Question – They didn't ask questions that would catch you off guard. It was all straightforward. All the questions pertained to the job and my qualifications.   Answer Question

Intern Copywriter Interview

Intern Copywriter
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners in May 2012.

Interview Details – I was picked up by an in-agency creative recruiter directly from college at a portfolio review. After a brief correspondence I was called in for an interview where I showed my book to an ACD and a CD; one right after the other.

This interview was more like a follow-up interview, having covered preliminaries with the recruiter when we met.

I showed way too many campaigns. (Say it all with 3 if you interview here.)

Negotiation Details – I knew from the preliminaries that the offer would be a paid-internship and that the hourly rate was non-negotiable.
