At Marvel Entertainment you will be handling multiple projects at a time. When have you nearly missed a production timeline due to disorganization?
Production deadlines are incredibly important. One missed deadline can throw a thousand deliverables out of balance, costing a studio or production company countless dollars. Talk to the interviewer about a time when you nearly missed a production deadline. Discuss how you caught the potential disaster, and pivoted to make sure that you met the deadline in the end. Be sure to mention what you learned in the process!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I handle dozens of deliverables in a day, making it a challenge to stay on top of it all. I nearly missed an important deadline because I delegated a few tasks to my assistant without checking in regularly. Since this incident, I have set up my work in a cloud-based task management system which my assistant and I share. I set up clear milestones, attached to dates and times; ensuring that we are on the same page all the times."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Tight deadlines are normal in the film industry, and I make a point of delivering early on everything as often as possible. Last month, I had a production deadline that offered half the working time as usual. I took my work home every night for a week to ensure that we met the deadline without the quality of work suffering; however, it just wasn't enough. At the eleventh hour, I called in reinforcements. It is sometimes hard for me to ask for help, but I know to set my ego aside for the good of the project."
2.
Do you feel performance should be rewarded over experience?
The interviewer would like to know your thoughts on being paid based on your work performance, versus being compensated solely on your years of experience. As millennial employees continue to dominate the work scene, more and more employees are requesting compensation based on delivered results. Do you feel that you should be paid based on tenure, or results? Discuss this with the interviewer and back your answer with an example, if possible.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I feel that employees should be paid, and rewarded, based on their performance. A new employee will find motivation in being rewarded for performance, and it encourages healthy competition with tenured employees."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"In media, performance is everything! For that reason, I do believe it should be the primary consideration when it comes to compensation, bonus' and raises. Tenure is vital to consider as well, and also continued education and training are excellent considerations."
3.
How would you rate your performance in this interview so far?
The interviewer would like to know if you are satisfied with your interview performance. If your interview were a flop, you would know, and it's much better to address outright your performance than try to sweep it under the rug.

If you feel that your performance in the interview is going well: 'I believe that this interview has been quite informative and I am happy with my performance. Is there anything that I can clarify for you from this conversation?'

If you feel that your performance in the interview is not going well: "I am not sure if I have been able to portray myself 100% accurately in this interview; although, I am trying my best. If there is anything more I can clarify for you, I would be happy to do so."
Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am not sure if I have been able to portray myself 100% accurately in this interview; although, I am trying my best. If there is anything more I can clarify for you, I would be happy to do so."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I would rate my performance as an 8/10. I am happy how I answered most of the questions; however, I feel that I stumbled a bit when you asked about my experience with gamification ads. Could I further clarify for you?"
4.
Why should Marvel hire you?
Interviewers want to hear about that one unique skill that sets you apart from the other candidates applying for this job. Think of your answer as your 'elevator pitch' or your qualifying statement. If you can't think of ways that you are unique, ask a few friends or family members what they feel sets you apart from other people. Their observations may help you understand how you are perceived.

Perhaps you already know what sets you apart! This skill could include any industry accolades, exceptional achievements, additional industry related training, a second language, or how involved you are in the community. Don't be afraid to brag about yourself a bit. In an interview, you are your most influential advocate.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I know that my years in sales, freelancing as a marketer, and working on different marketing campaigns have prepared me to be a great asset to your team. I believe that I am the best fit for the role because of my experience, passion for marketing, and more specifically, excitement for the Marvel brand. Having been an avid Marvel fan for years, I know that I will be able to bring more fire and energy to the role than my fellow applicants, and am certain that I am the right fit for your team."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"You should hire me because I'm qualified and passionate about your cause. I am excited about the idea of delivering value to your organization through this internship and will hustle for the opportunity to go above and beyond for your loyal Marvel followers."
5.
Describe to me the types of digital media you are most experienced with.
There are a plethora of digital media forms today, and the interviewer would like a breakdown of the ones with which you are most familiar. Some types of digital media include images, video, gamification of many kinds, social media, websites, online channels and more. Speak to the forms of digital media you are most experienced with while being sure to address the types listed in the Marvel Entertainment job description.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current role I work primarily with online channels such as YouTube and IGTV, creating video content. I also have experience working on projects related to gamification ads. I saw in the Marvel Entertainment job posting that you were looking for someone with in-depth knowledge with IGTV and Insta Stories for marketing. I would rate my knowledge in this area an 8 out of 10, leaving me very confident that I would meet your requirements."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"While completing my degree in Digital Marketing, I learned a great deal about digital media production and design for video and web platforms. Most of my experience is with creating compelling video ads, and shorts for use online and on social media."
