a. What the hardest challenge you've overcome? b. Do you know what KPI/CTR means? c. What's your experience with video and how did you get into it? d. What editing software do you use mainly? Do you use premiere? e. I believe they asked me how I take criticism and how I responded to an instance of failure.

1 Answers

a. (very personal response) b."I'm not sure about KPI, but I studied the terminology and retained that CTR means click-through-rate." c. (Gave a backstory beginning from when I was a child and my dad would always get the newest video camera, etc) d. "Ohohoho yes, I use premiere, and after effects." e. I said that I take criticism into account and don't take it personally. My desire is to deliver a working video for the client that will drive business. I mentioned a project in which the client wrote a scathing review that went on for paragraphs, telling me the footage was useless. I let them (the interviewer) know I went in with the wrong equipment because I needed to create a portfolio and knew I could portray a certain story in that event and was ready for criticism. I read the entire scathing review, thanked him for his input, and then edited a video he really liked. He responded with "I have no idea how you extracted so much gold out of that footage." Less

Tell us how you would market our walk-in feature via video without having someone actually walk into the store.

1 Answers

This question stumped me because I couldn't come up with an answer on the spot and I felt they wanted someone who is able to be creative right then and there without much thought. Unfortunately, I'm not built like that. I believe this is one of the reasons why I wasn't offered the position. Less
