    Creative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    My older brother's colleagues had a contract position in their new releases marketing department and passed my resume along to upper management, who contacted me for an interview. I was inverviewed by two people simulatenously, which they noted was the first step before interviewing with VPs and higher ups. Turns out the position I thought I was referred to was not the exact position they were interviewing for, so there was a bit of initial confusion during the process. I did, however, make it clear that I was interested in both of the positions, as they liked what was on my resume. I followed up several times with both interviewers weeks following, but failed to hear back at all. The interview itself was brief, with an overview of the position/responsibilities, and general questions about me and my career aspirations.
