    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Black Diamond.

    Interview

    I initially applied for a content manager position, which I was not chosen for. However, that interview process was a very positive experience. The hiring manager took me out for a beer and really drilled down on who I was. When I wasn't offered the position, he said he wanted to keep in touch. I later saw the social coordinator position, asked him about the position, and was introduced to the digital manager. Again it was a good interview experience. The initial contact was through email, and then a call to discuss the position, and what made me a fit. They were gearing up for a reboot of their digital and asked questions about how I manage content, planning and analytics. One thing that piqued their interest was outside the box concepts and an urgency to get ahead of the social landscape. He mentioned he was interested in bringing me in, and said he had a lot of travel coming up, and it could be a little while before anything could happen. After that there was a long communication gap (approx. 2 months). When I was contacted again, I had already started at another position, but still accepted the invite for in-person interviews. For the interviews, there were three back-to-back interviews with two of the major marketing stakeholders in each interview. Their questions were mostly around: how would you shape/build the social presence of BD? They drilled down on what approach for each channel would be, i.e., Instagram, Twitter, etc. how to attract the younger audience, and how to manage community comments. I was offered the position, but unfortunately had to turn it down, as I was still fresh in my new job.
