Copywriter Interview

Interview Details

Before bringing me in for a formal interview, CDM had me complete a "copy test" that involved responding to several hypothetical advertising/marketing tasks, e.g. design an ad for an eraser, write a fundraising letter from a nonprofit, etc. The test involved five or six tasks in all and took several hours to complete. After submitting the test, I received a call from CDM in several weeks and was asked to come in for an interview. I interviewed with an HR generalist and then with the two senior vice president creative directors who headed the department. The interviews were pleasant, informal, and informative.

Interview Questions
  • One of the SVPs asked me whether, having graduated from an Ivy League school, I might have difficulty working with people without "a pedigree." I found this question to be unexpected but refreshing.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Being right out of college with no agency experience to speak of, I did not have leverage to negotiate.
