      When preparing for your interview, choose a compelling and honest story that can articulate a real-life experience where you received constructive feedback from your manager or peer at your workplace. During the interview, describe the situation and explain what feedback you received and from whom. Elaborate on how you reacted when you received the feedback. Show that you maintained a calm and composed attitude and were not defensive to the person who gave you the feedback.

      Written by Sue Oberliesen on May 27th, 2022

      1st Answer Example

      "I have been working in leadership positions in marketing for the past ten years. I always encouraged my peers and subordinates to share their feedback and tell me if they thought I could do something better. I encouraged my team to complete peer reviews and created a safe space to provide constructive criticism and feedback. For example, a few individuals said that I did not explain my expectations clearly in the team meetings and that I left a team under-staffed. I always tried to respond positively to their criticism, taking into account what they said and finding ways to make changes that positively addressed their concerns. In my opinion, leaders and managers see things from a different perspective than employees, and we may miss something that matters to the team. I think it's important to stay humble, avoid getting defensive, listen carefully to any criticism from our subordinates and colleagues, and encourage them to share their feedback with us when they see a problem. I've been following this philosophy for years and plan to continue to do so if I'm hired in this role with Facebook."

    2. Have you ever been in a challenging team situation? What did you do to move towards a resolution?

      Why the Interviewer Asks This Question

      Interviewers pose this question when good teamwork is essential to their work environment and company culture. The goal is to find out how you deal with clients and team members who work or believe differently than you do. They are trying to find out if you can bridge differences and work towards effective solutions. Facebook hiring managers want to hire open-minded, innovative candidates who can manage disagreements with other team members and leaders.

      Written by Sue Oberliesen on May 27th, 2022

      How to Answer

      This question offers you the opportunity to discuss some of the characteristics that enable you to work well with your co-workers, supervisors, and clients. The ability of team members to collaborate effectively is critical to productivity and marketing success. Telling a story from your past is an effective way to communicate your strengths as a team member. Use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) interview response technique. In your answer, while you want to focus on how you helped the group achieve a resolution, try not to focus too much on your individual successes. Be sure to end on a positive note so that your interviewer sees you as a proactive problem-solver and a team player.

      1st Answer Example

      "During my last position as a marketing associate with an advertising firm, a client had last-minute changes and suddenly wanted to revise an entire campaign strategy two days before launch. The client was unhappy with the team's first draft, so we were tasked with redoing the entire plan. We organized a two-day brainstorming session and worked for several hours each day. I asked to take the lead on putting together a new deck. This was challenging and an opportunity to apply my strong visual presentation skills. The client was very impressed with how quickly we were able to pivot and put together a new campaign."

    3. What would be your biggest challenge coming into this role?

      Why the Interviewer Asks This Question

      The interviewer's goal is to assess whether the position is a good fit for you. To determine fit, interviewers will often try to figure out which aspects of the job will be the toughest for you to master.

      Written by Sue Oberliesen on May 27th, 2022

      How to Answer

      The best way to approach this question is to analyze the job and think about which tasks will be most difficult for you based on your past experiences. Selecting a knowledge or skill area that you lack is generally more advisable than choosing a personality trait that would be hard to change. Start by breaking down the job into its various components and thinking about what you need in terms of skills and knowledge to accomplish each task. Think about elements of the job that will require learning or adjustments on your part.

      Written by Sue Oberliesen on May 27th, 2022

      "I want to be immediately effective in this role.

I may encounter blind spots along the way, but I would accept that as part of the learning process and incorporate those lessons into my work."

An appropriate answer to this question will vary based on your position and experience level.

      How to Answer

      Take some time to conduct research before the interview and find out what tools they use for marketing - there are a lot of tools that companies can use for social media marketing. Between Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Snapchat, and others, marketers have been forced to rethink entire marketing strategies that best reach the audiences of each platform. You should know how to use Facebook and the other most common ones and be aware of other tools. For example, tools used by a company with just 5-10 employees might be different than the tools a large corporation like Facebook might use. You shouldn't need to know every feature of every tool or every single technique; just describe what you know.

      What You Need to Know

      Edgerank is an algorithm Facebook uses to determine what should appear on a user's News Feed by looking at your interactions and your interests so that it can show you what you most want to see. An Edge is every interaction you've ever had on Facebook, and when Edgerank filters your News Feed, it's showing you the people and posts you've shown the most interest in. Having a good Edgerank ranking improves how other people see your post. The higher ranked you are, the more important you appear to be, and it affects how your fans and their friends see you. When coupled with great content, you become top priority viewing, increasing awareness of your brand.
