    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hearst Television.

    Interview

    There were three interviews. First one with hiring manager and local sales manager. Second one with hiring manager, local sales manager and other account executive. Third interview with GM. They really get to know your background. They are looking for certain characteristics that would fit the position they are interviewing you for. They want to know what you are passionate about. Are you self motivated? Driven? Ambitious? Curious? Are you an avid learner? Just be yourself and they will figure out if the position is right for you!

    Interview Questions

    • Be ready to think on your feet. The questions that they ask see how you would be in a legitimate sales experience. Some people are naturally better at this than others. Thankfully, my past sales experience prepared me to answer these questions well. Remember: it isn't always the answer that they are looking for; sometimes it is the confidence you have with that answer.   Answer Question
