Rachelle's Answer #1
"There are many admirable people in the video game development industry; however, I most admire Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft. Microsoft acquired his company for more than two billion dollars, which is remarkable. Besides his financial success, I appreciate that his passion for programming and creating great games far surpasses any ego he could have."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My hero in the video game development industry continues to be Roberta Williams. In this male-dominated industry, it's exciting to see a woman be a stand-out. Not only that, but she is also more mature in age, being in her 60's, and still killing it as a video game designer, writer, and the co-founder of Sierra On-Line."
2.
What does the word 'innovation' mean to you?
The term 'innovation' is often overused in business these days and has now become a buzzword that many people don't fully understand. The interviewer would like to know what you feel innovation indeed is. Include an example of a time when you have witnessed an innovative change in the workplace, or when you have exercised creativity.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"To me, innovation means presenting a new idea or making an existing idea better. It's important to be innovative in the workplace, but often it's a misunderstood concept. An example of when I was innovative was when our company was facing budget cuts. I suggested that we begin to operate as though the cuts were already made, in an attempt to preemptively save funds. The concept worked well, and we were able to eliminate many unnecessary expenditures."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"This year I introduced a virtual idea box to my company, as a way to encourage creative ideas from our employees and freelancers. This initiative is a concept that we have now introduced to our clients. This 'idea box' allows for anonymous, or named, employees and even clients to give their two cents without feeling the pressure of brainstorm meetings. To me, innovation can mean taking existing ideas and transforming them to make them work for today's digital age."
3.
How do you feel about joining a new organization?
The interviewer would like to know how you are feeling in regards to making a significant change. Changing employers can be exciting, scary, and all of the feels wrapped into one big weird emotion. Talk to the interviewer about how you feel regarding this particular career move.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"For me, the thought of joining a new organization is stimulating. I am excited about learning new skills although I am also aware that it will be a lot of hard work. Overall, I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity with Lionsgate."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I would not want to leave my current organization for just any role; however, I have had an eye on your group for a very long time. For that reason, I would feel incredibly honored and thrilled to join the Lionsgate Entertainment organization."
4.
Is compensation the most critical factor for you when taking a new job?
The interviewer would like to know how much emphasis you put on pay when considering a new position. In addition to compensation, there are many other factors in a fulfilling career. These other factors may include:

- work/life balance
- overall medical and health benefits
- additional perks such as car allowance, cell allowance, spending account
- amount of vacation time
- the location of the company
- career growth opportunity
- the size of your new team
- the company's reputation
- overall workplace culture.

Talk to the interviewer about other factors that are important to you when considering a new job. If you are not sure on details for this role with Lionsgate, you can ask!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Salary is important to me because I know that I am skilled and well educated. With that said, I do look at the full picture which includes factors such as benefits and the amount of paid vacation time."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Several factors are important to me when taking a job. Compensation is a driving component but so is the company mission, culture, benefits, and location. I am looking to have an easier commute than I currently experience."
5.
Can you talk to me about your GPA during undergraduate/graduate school?
The interviewer would like further details on your more significant successes as a post-secondary student. Are you satisfied with your GPA or would you change it if you could? Talk to the interviewer about your post-secondary experience. You can keep your answer brief and to the point.

If you were satisfied with your post-secondary experience: 'I graduated top of my class and am very proud of my accomplishments during University. The experience taught me to study hard and set goals for myself.'

If you were not satisfied with your post-secondary experience: "I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."
Rachelle's Answer #1
"I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"The successes of my post-secondary education set the stage for my success in my career. My GPA could have been better; I graduated with a 3.4; however, the discipline that I learned was incredibly valuable."
