Junior Copywriter Interview

Junior Copywriter
Chicago, IL

Interviewed at Leo Burnett

Interview Details – Fantastic informational interview, went through my book with a creative recruiter. They were a bit difficult to get in touch with, but dropping off your resume directly to the office, and addressed to a specific person will be beneficial.

Interview Question – Make sure you can explain case studies and background info in regards to various campaigns.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Great program, but I was more keen on working with another Chicago multinational agency.
