Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Zimmer Gunsul Frasca (Seattle, WA).
The woman who would be my 'boss' came up to Seattle from the home office in Bellevue to interview prospects. I had gotten my resume late in the process as I had another job & couldn't decide if it would be best to keep that job or go for the ZGF position. When I sat down, Jan (who was the CFO and Manager of Admin.) and I immediately hit it off. It was so amazing that when I got the job and spent my first week in Portland following her around we both kept saying, oh that's just what I was going to say. Obviously, it was a very comfortable interview and went well.
- Why do you think you would be the best candidate for this position? 1 Answer
Although I have had much experience in negotiations, it wasn't necessary in this case. They had stated an annual salary in their advertisement so that was settled. I did get very large annual increases in salary because Jan & the Managing Partner in Seattle felt I was doing such a good job. When I left, I had gone from $35,000/yr to $43,000/yr. Because I also worked as a clent secretary, I received overtime pay. One month my pay was $53,000. Much as I enjoyed the job, liked the other emplyees, and worked in a beautiful spot that looked out a large window at Puget Sound, I left after 2 1/2 years because the company was too conservative. I had spent 20 years in Advertising Agencies and couldn't live without the more out-going, ya-ha, fun ambiance. I left to join an Advertising Agency in Spokane WA.
