Tell me about your experience collaborating with marketing, sales, editorial, and design teams.
The hiring authority is looking for details on your experience when it comes to cross-departmental collaboration. In media and online publishing, it takes many passes through many hands to complete a project so, it's essential to Leaf Group that you can work well with other people through a variety of departments. Give an example of how you collaborate with a diverse team in your current role.
"In my current role we have a staff of 450 people within ten departments. Any given week, I will collaborate with marketing, sales, human resources, and IT. These are the departments with which I collaborate most often. I believe that everyone has a great deal of value to offer, so, for that reason, I embrace every opportunity to collaborate cross-departmentally."
"I look forward to getting to know your marketing, editorial, and design teams here at Leaf Group. Currently, in my internship, I have spent two weeks in each department, getting to know the ins and outs of publishing, design, marketing, sales, and even public relations. The experience has been invaluable."
