Assistant Media Planner was asked...August 26, 2010

3 Answers

I answered that recently with my current job search I have been trying to spend less time working on looking for my ideal job and more time for myself to get my mind of things outside of looking for a job.

The above answer seems like it would not get someone a job. I think saying that you are working to become more familiar with the industry by reading books and trade magazines more consistently. Less

I don't think you should play into the media planner's hand on this. Be honest, have integrity, and say something meaningful you are working on. Examples: "I'm trying to listen more intently to others" or "I'm trying to expand my knowledge by reading more books." Make yourself a well-rounded candidate. Less

When you answering the questions be sure to be confident and highlight your skills. They are looking for problem solving skills and self starters. If you don't have any previous Media background speak to your transferrable skills as much as possible. Less

Carat

Nothing was really tough, I had some experience in the industry so I knew the basics. The position was entry-level so the questions were pretty standard about media and advertising.

Do you like competition?

1 Answers

I told them that I preferred to focus on competing with outside threats. To which I was told that the firm hosts in house sales competitions amongst the employees for bonuses. Considering the nature of the business they are in and the relatively small company size compared to big publishers, I feel they should work together to add more customers. Less
