How to Answer
How you react to an error made will tell the interviewer a great deal about you and your honesty level. Perhaps the mistake is one that could land you in a lot of trouble. Would you try to hide the incident, or would you tell a supervisor right away, and have the situation rectified?
"My first reaction when I do something wrong at work is to own it. How can anything be repaired if nobody even has a chance to fix it on time? That would be my line of thinking if a mistake were to occur."
Second Answer Example
"I am hard on myself so when I do something wrong or make a mistake. If I make an error, the first thing I would do is research how to fix it. I am independent and smart, so I know that I could repair any damage very quickly."
Employers want to know that you have a systematic approach to problem-solving. Consider the skills and qualities that help you successfully face problems. Perhaps you have a keen eye for detail. Maybe you can see opportunity when others can only focus on the issue. Share your strengths as a problem solver, and your ability to come up with innovative solutions.
Strong problem solvers are:
- Systematic thinkers
- Open minded
- Okay with being wrong sometimes
- Always researching and exploring
- Able to identify the core problem
- Able to reverse engineer a challenge to avoid future issues
- Ready to come up with multiple avenues that work well for all stakeholders
- Are do-ers and not worriers
"I am a great problem solver because I can compartmentalize all aspects of a problem before studying it. I also like to bring more experienced team members in to add to the solution. I will never try to be a hero and solve a complicated problem without tapping into the resources around me."
Second Answer Example
"I have been told that I am an excellent problem solver and I believe this is because I have a bit of an engineering mind. I can take the issue, work backward to solve it, and then use that resolution as a basis for avoiding future issues to come up. I am also a big-picture thinker which allows me to come up with various resolutions per problem."
By giving you only three words to describe yourself, the interviewer knows that you are going to choose carefully! Try to use words that are unique and will set you apart. You want to avoid giving an answer that everyone else has likely given. Time to get out your thesaurus and choose some fun and new descriptive words!
"If I had just three words to describe myself I would say that I am positive, enthusiastic, and available."
Second Answer Example
"Just three words to describe me is a challenge! I would say that I am happy, helpful, and transparent."

How to Answer
This question is not a trick one! The interviewer is trying to get a feel for your personality and how you interact with others. You may work well without the need for much management or direction, or perhaps you are better driven by a collaborative and team led environment. Either way, be honest with the interviewer about your preferences without leaning negatively, either way.
"Whether I am doing an independent project, or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well."
Second Answer Example
"As a professional in publishing, I have a good blend of independent and teamwork experience. When it comes to strategy for a new project, I love working in a team environment. Once it comes to the final details of the content or copy, I prefer to work in a quieter, more focused environment."
6. How do you handle stress on the job? The interviewer would like to know if you can appropriately handle the stress related to this job. Discuss how you can thrive, even during the most stressful times. You can keep your answer brief. If you can, provide an example of a time when you implemented a stress-management technique in your current role. Here is an answer example: "I handle stress very well, and when you call my references, they will attest to this fact. When I am under pressure on the job, I focus on the task at hand and make sure not to get distracted. Staying on a deadline is very helpful, and I will delegate when necessary to alleviate some stress." Here is an answer example: "Stress is often one of my drivers. When facing tight deadlines, I tend to concentrate even better. It's a unique characteristic, I admit, but it works for me!"7. The publishing industry has many tight deadlines. How do you manage your time, ensuring that your deadlines are met? The interviewer would like to know what you do to ensure that your deadlines are met and that you are consistently on time with projects and other expectations. Discuss how you stay organized, getting into the small details of how you plan your day or the tools you use to track your work and progress. You can mention a time when you were close to missing a deadline, including the actions that you took to ensure you delivered on time. Here is an answer example: "With five years' experience in the publishing industry, I fully understand that my day can change on a dime. I remain on top of my deadlines by being prepared for a plan B at all times. Also, I track my progress and tasks through an app called Trello. This type of application works well for communicating with my team, ensuring we all work hard to meet expectations." Here is an answer example: "I learned during my time in university that deadlines are met most easily when there is organization and when tasks are properly mapped out from the start. I learned the hard way, having to cram in a few assignments because I was not well prepared. Now, when I begin a project, I create a timeline with an estimate on how long each task will take. From there, I divide my time."8. If you could pitch me one idea for a book, article, or editorial, what would it be? The hiring authority wants to get to know you. One great way to do this is to ask about your interests. Generally speaking, you would want to pitch something you are knowledgeable in and passionate about. There is no right or wrong answer to a question like this; however, the interviewer will want to see that you are insightful and have enthusiasm for an exciting topic. If you choose an item that is related to Sage Publications or their publication, that's great but certainly not a requirement for this to be a successful answer. Here is an answer example: "I read a lot of history books and find so much of it fascinating. In particular, ancestry and genealogy. If I could pitch you one idea for an article, it would be a how-to for people who were starting on discovering their family lineage." Here is an answer example: "As a new graduate, I have a keen interest in productivity hacks for new university students. In my first year, I struggled with organization and time-management. By the end of my second year, I had mastered the art of juggling many priorities. This topic is in high demand, and I would pitch it as a series of articles, deep-dives, and even infographics."9. Where do you believe the educational journal and textbook industry will be in 5 years? Support your response. The interviewer wants to know that you believe in the longevity of Sage Publications and the future of their niche. Of course, since you are interviewing for a long-standing publication, you want to keep your response positive. Be sure to support your opinion with the research you have done in the educational resource publishing niche. Here is an answer example: "I was recently reading an article on trends and facts in the publishing industry, from a journalism publication which had some powerful ideas on the future of educational resources. Even though the purchase of physical textbooks has declined over the past 15 years, the number of visitors coming to an educational publishers' website had increased exponentially. I believe that alternative print publications will exist for many years to come; however, many publishers will begin to rely more heavily on their digital subscriber base who still go to them for reliable, consistent, and trustworthy content." Here is an answer example: "I believe that educational resource readers are also going to ask for digital subscription options, allowing them to pivot between the two mediums. Although sales of traditional print textbooks and journals have decreased over the years, discerning readers will still turn to these traditional methods for reliable education. This engagement may be more digital and online, as time goes on."10. Market research is essential to Sage Publications to help us understand where to take our business in the years to come. Rate your research skills from 1-10. Do you enjoy conducting research? In the publishing industry, research and reliable sources are everything. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of conducting robust and dependable research. Draw on your positive references when answering this question. Here is an answer example: "One of the reasons why I would love to work for Sage Publications is because of your solid reputation for reputable educational sources and research. In my previous positions, I have earned recognition for my great research skills. When you call my references, they will attest to this as well. There is always room for improvement so I would rate myself as an 8.5 out of 10 for research capabilities." Here is an answer example: "When it comes to research capabilities, I am most definitely a 10/10. An eleven even, if that is allowed! I love researching a large range of products and am very data and analytically minded."11. Name for me your three favorite books, and why they are your favorite. Since Sage Publications publishes educational journals and textbooks, the hiring managers want to make sure they are bringing on a team member with a passion for books, and reading! There is no wrong answer to this question. Open up about your favorite literary works. Here is an answer example: "I love reading and try to pick up a new novel at least once per month. I read a variety of genres; however, my all time favorite book series is the Harry Potter series. I have read through the entire book series about three times. The way JK Rowling builds a world of suspense and magic never becomes tiresome." Here is an answer example: "My top three favorite books happen to be across multiple genres. One is 'All the Lives We Never Lived' by Anuradha Roy. This novel is by a renowned Indian writer who brings in stories from childhood with a theme of independence and finding oneself. The other is 'Becoming' by Michelle Obama, a memoir of the former First Lady. Lastly, the book of poetry by Rupi Kaur called 'Milk and Honey.' Her poetry is dark and beautiful."12. What type of experience have you had working in the education industry? Experience in the education industry is helpful in many different ways. It not only gives you a better sense of Sage's competitive environment, but it also gives you an understanding of trends and the needs of your target readers, should you be hired. Share details of your experiences in this industry whether or not they are related to publishing. Here is an answer example: "I started in the educational publishing industry as a former high school teacher and eventually combined it with my love for writing. The combination of my work experiences gives me a well-rounded knowledge base to build useful educational resources. Sage Publications offers premium educational products, and I am confident I can contribute to the company's goals of providing high-quality solutions." Here is an answer example: "Although I have not worked directly in the education industry, I have attained knowledge and skills through my work and personal experiences that may apply to this position. Having gone through several online training modules, I have an understanding of how different educational publications operate. Also, as a parent, I have researched several of the biggest competitors in the K-12 educational resources industry. Through my research, I have an understanding of what is currently available in the industry and have insights into what may be lacking in the current offerings from various companies. Based on my research, I know that Sage Publications offers several competitive products to a few different user groups. "13. What drew you to Sage Publications? This question is similar to 'Why do you want to work here?'. To answer this question effectively, it's essential that you have reasoning that is specific and will stand out from other people competing for this role. Giving a general answer such as, 'You have a great workplace culture' could potentially disqualify you from winning the position. Show the interviewer that you have done your research on Sage Publications by coming prepared with some compelling reasons to work for them. Here is an answer example: "I have read your brand story and was inspired. Each year, since 1965, Sage Publications comes up with thousands of fresh concepts for educational based learning. In addition to this, your company supports growth for women, which is important to me." Here is an answer example: "Initially, I was drawn to your publishing company because I saw your name everywhere in my University textbooks and journals! Sage Publications is known to be a stand-out publisher in the education genre and well respected. I also appreciate that you have recently made an effort to increase your exposure on social media channels, ensuring you remain relevant in this digital age."14. Who is your favorite author, and why? There is no right or wrong way to answer this question! Unless you do not know any author names off hand, which could turn out disastrous since you're interviewing for a publisher! Think of your favorite author and be prepared to discuss on a meaningful level, why you appreciate their work. Giving a surface-level answer would be the wrong thing to do here. Here is an answer example: "My all-time favorite author is Stephen King because of his incredible success. He's become the figurehead for suspense, horror, and supernatural fiction. On top of selling over 350 million copies of his books, many of these have become films, comic books, and television series. It's incredible what he has accomplished." Here is an answer example: "From the time I was a kid, and still today, my favorite author is Judy Blume. She wrote young adult fiction that rubbed a lot of parents the wrong way, back in the 1980s and 1990s. She created this whole genre that came with important conversations that were once taboo. Decades later, she remains incredibly relevant in her space with many authors trying to emulate her style."15. How do you transition between the creative and analytical sides of publishing? Wearing multiple hats is the name of the game when it comes to publishing. One moment you could be discussing the analytics of a past publication where the next you could be giving your opinion on the design of a book cover or layout of a new online article. It's essential that you show the interviewer your ability to be flexible on the job by pivoting tasks regularly. If possible, give an example of a time when you were able to flip between creative and analytical. Here is an answer example: "I believe that I transition quite well between the creative and analytical. Generally speaking, I am more of a creative minded individual; however, my experience in business has allowed me to see the data and analytics behind a successful publication. So, in addition to my creative approach, I also ask myself or my team how our decisions will impact the company's bottom line. If hired, I will deliver a nice balance between analytical thinking and creative mindedness." Here is an answer example: "My educational background is in business with a focus on accounting and financial management. This coursework means that I am naturally inclined to look at data such as numbers, results, spend, account activity, and ROI. With that said, I spend my spare time in creative writing, dabbling in design, and other activities that relax and entertain me. I believe that I will pivot well between the creative and analytical sides of publishing because of this variety in knowledge and interests."16. When thinking about your experience with educational content, describe the target audience of the publications you have worked with. Because educational content can have many different types of users (K-12, post-secondary, corporate, etc.), the response to this question will give hiring managers at Sage a better sense of the publication types on which you have worked. Highlight the general skills you have strengthened and the knowledge you attained through your past experiences and how these skills will help you be a valuable contributor to building and improving educational products for Sage Publications. Here is an answer example: "The majority of my experience has concentrated in building an educational curriculum for students in grades K through 12. Through my work building content for this group, I learned the importance of listening to reader feedback. Because I did not have a background in education, it was vital for me to familiarize myself with the needs and requirements of these learners. Using several rounds of revisions, I was able to help build effective learning based content. I know the communication skills I have developed, and my understanding of the K-12 reader group will allow me to make valuable contributions to meeting the needs of Sage Publications's target audience." Here is an answer example: "I have worked on educational content for the corporate environment. More specifically, the written content used for internal training and management. The material was highly customizable and allowed internal human resources departments to monitor and pace the training employees received. Because each client's needs varied, I cultivated my client relationship skills as I worked to understand their varying needs and requirements. Also, I learned a great deal about different learning styles and implemented my knowledge into the training products I helped to create. These skills and knowledge will undoubtedly help in meeting the needs of Sage Publications's readership audience."17. With which publishing categories are you most familiar? How will this knowledge help you in this position with Sage Publications? There is a multitude of publishing categories in which you could bring experience. This experience includes textbooks, magazines, physical books, ebooks, catalogs, online publishers, newspapers, and more. Discuss with the interviewer the areas which you are most experienced. If you want to dive deeper into genres, you can certainly do that as well; especially if your experience is related to the publishing activities at Sage Publications. Be sure to sound confident, and finish your answer by tying in how this experience will make you successful in your new role. Here is an answer example: "I am most familiar with book publishing, working with seasoned authors, often in the children and young adult realm. This experience will help me at Sage Publications because I know how to move content that appeals to a wide audience with significant age and interest gap." Here is an answer example: "Although I am new to publishing, I have the most experience reading and identify best with medical journals. The mediums that I am most familiar with include online journals and other digital content. I have a great eye for design and layout for online publications and believe I could offer Sage Publications fresh insight."18. 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 publishing, it takes many passes through many hands to complete a project so, it's essential to Sage Publications 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. Here is an answer example: "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." Here is an answer example: "I look forward to getting to know your marketing, editorial, and design teams here at Sage Publications. 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."19. What are your salary expectations? The best way to discuss your salary expectations is to use your current earnings as an example. Be open, and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise. Here is an answer example: "Currently, I earn a base salary of $45,000 per year plus a potential 20% annual bonus. Last year my earnings were $52,000, and I would like to stay in the same range or slightly higher." Here is an answer example: "I am currently making $60,000 per year with two bonus opportunities. I am looking for compensation that is aligned with the role and provides an opportunity for growth."20. What is the key to success for a publisher in this digital era? The digital world is transforming traditional publishing, and the interviewer wants to know what you believe to be the key to success amidst this shift. Discuss what you think a publishing company should do, in this digital era, to remain successful and relevant. Keep your response positive rather than shifting into negative language. For instance, mention what is great about this digital era versus focusing on the hardships. Here is an answer example: "I believe the key to success for a publisher in this digital era is to remain relevant in your core area, while also exploring the ways that digital can complement your existing products. If you are a traditional book publisher, for instance, why not explore the impact that a social media campaign could have for a new author. As in any industry, it's critical that we remain up to date with technology so that we are always meeting our audience where they are showing up." Here is an answer example: "The key to success in publishing, and many other industries is listening to your customers and taking action on what they are teaching you. For instance, in the publishing industry, it's critical that we deliver works on topics that people are searching for, and seeking out. We can accomplish this approach through surveys, polls, purchased data, and even some analytics on Google algorithms."21. What do you expect to be the most significant trend in publishing this year? When you come to an interview prepared to discuss industry trends and happenings, you are showing the interviewer that you have done your homework on Sage Publications and that you have a vested interest in what they are achieving within their market.
There is no real right or wrong answer here; as the interviewer just wants to know that you have done some research on the educational publications industry. So long as your response is intelligent, the interviewer should be happy with hearing your insight. Here is an answer example: "From what I have read, the most significant trend in publishing is meeting the increasing demand from audiences to have their publications available through a variety of mediums. With a huge number of entertainment options available to consumers these days, it will be essential for publications to continue exploring multiple mediums. For instance, it's excellent that Sage Publications has made content available across many digital platforms." Here is an answer example: "Independent and new authors who are publishing onto alternative mediums such as Wattpad is one topic that has grabbed my interest. I understand that traditional publishers enjoy searching out for new authors on these platforms because it leads them to the authors and also their loyal readers. I believe we will see many more emerging authors discovered from online writing platforms like this."22. How would you increase Sage Publications' journal audience in this online-centric world? In a world immersed in online content, the hiring authority at Sage Publications would like to know how you would capture the interest of new readers to their thousands of published journals. Discuss one idea you have that would help print media to stand out in an online world. Here is an answer example: "Print media is still very relevant, especially when a publication attracts a particular niche. In an online-centric world, I would place focus on the nostalgia that comes from reading your favorite magazine, along with the fact that Sage Publications has been a trusted source for journals and educational media since 1965." Here is an answer example: "Many people still love the offering of traditional magazines and journals. To increase subscriptions or readership, I would remain hyper-focused on best serving the niche you do best at Sage."23. How do you go about fact checking, and researching sources? In publishing, no matter which genre or medium you're involved in, it's essential that you check for facts before hitting that proverbial publish button. Now, more than ever, a company can receive significant backlash from posting or publishing anything misleading or untrue. Discuss the steps that you take to verify facts and sources for all content. Here is an answer example: "At this point in my publishing career it's much easier for me to weed out an unreliable source versus a reputable one. When I first began my career; however, I trusted that many sources were credible, not accounting for the fact that there is so much fake news out there. Now, I triple check against our library of content and online. Before any piece of content goes out, I will send it to our professional editor for a final once-over." Here is an answer example: "I will dig deeper into any sources, quotes, statistics, and do my best to find where they originated. If I cannot find the original source, I simply will not use the source."24. What is the difference between a publisher's frontlist and backlist? In publishing, a frontlist is a list of a publisher's newly published book titles. A backlist is a list of a publisher's older books. The backlist is usually a book that is off the bestseller list and has been in print for more than a year. The interviewer wants to see that you understand these terms which are pretty basic in the publishing industry. Keep your answer simple and, if possible, give specific examples from books that are currently on the Sage Publications frontlist and backlist. Here is an answer example: "I understand the frontlist to be newly published book titles where a backlist would be books that have been in print for about a year or more. For instance, Sage Publications has around 800 new titles on the frontlist each year." Here is an answer example: "Right now, I would guess that there are around 500-800 educational titles on the frontlist at Sage Publications, since you publish around 800 new titles every year. Generally speaking, a newly published book will be on the frontlist where a book over a year in print will fall onto the backlist."25. What do you know about our company culture? Company culture and fit is a crucial factor when considering a career move. Assure the interviewer that you have put thought, research, and consideration of how the company culture at Sage Publications will work for you. Sage has a long history of being an independent publisher, and woman founded and owned. Mentioning this information would be an excellent start! Here is an answer example: "I have researched your company through your social media channels and on glassdoor.com. Your employees have great things to say, and overall it seems that you have a positive work environment. I admire the fact that Sage was founded by a woman in 1965; a time when female entrepreneurs were few and far between. I look forward to joining an organization, like yours, that is upbeat and thoughtful with an eye on female entrepreneurship." Here is an answer example: "I looked through many positive reviews online about your organization and company culture. You offer great incentives to keep people motivated, and it seems to be the type of fast-paced publication environment that values innovation and performance."26. In which area are you the strongest: editorial, book sales, or book marketing? The interviewer is trying to assess which tasks and departments you will best work within. The way that you respond to this question could determine where the hiring authorities place you if you are hired by Sage Publications. Be honest with the interviewer on where you feel you best fit. Avoid pigeonholing yourself into one particular area. Here is an answer example: "I have strengths in a variety of areas; however, if I had to choose one stand-out area, I would choose book marketing. Some of the crucial book marketing steps that I have led include designing websites, building an email list for pre-sales, and creating social media strategies such as hashtag-driven contests." Here is an answer example: "I have performed well in all three of these areas but to choose just one, I would pick book sales. I have a solid background in sales with formal post-secondary education in sales and marketing. I look forward to working with Sage Publications and your authors to push record book sales this year."27. What are the benefits for an author or educator to publish their work with Sage Publications versus self-publishing? The idea of self-publishing has become increasingly popular, especially with self-publishing tools being available at anyone's fingertips. The interviewer wants to see that you are an advocate for the more traditional publishing route. Discuss what you believe to be the benefits of using a traditional publisher such as Sage Publications. Here is an answer example: "There are tremendous benefits to working with a traditional publisher. These include the fact that a publisher knows how to advocate for your work. They also have more connections than any independent author or curriculum builder could ever gather. I am eager to work with Sage Publications helping writers, researchers and subject matter experts to navigate the challenging world of publishing within the education space." Here is an answer example: "I believe the list of benefits is lengthy and include greater visibility and audience reach for an author, the fact that a literary agent can negotiate very well for you and your manuscript. Also, with less need to coordinate all aspects of publishing, an author will have more time to focus on what they do best - write!"28. Walk me through your editing experience. How would you rate your editing skills from 1-10? Even if your primary role with Sage Publications is not officially as an editor, the interviewer will want to see that you have a solid basis when it comes to language, context, tone, grammar, spelling, and more. Emphasize your solid command of the language, and your ability to pay attention to the small details. Discuss the types of editing jobs you have taken on, in the past. Here is an answer example: "I have helped to edit documents large, and small, including whitepapers, web copy, and curriculum outlines. I am confident in my language, spelling, and grammar skills. It's rare that a mistake will get past me, as I pay strong attention to the small details." Here is an answer example: "Although I have not formally edited a document of significance, I do always make a habit of double checking my emails and other internal or external communication. I have used editing programs such as Grammarly in the past, for assignments and papers while attending university."29. In your opinion, what is the difference between marketing and advertising? There are terms in the publishing industry that are similar; however, the interviewer wants assurance that you fully understand the semantics. Briefly discuss what you believe to be the most significant difference between marketing and advertising. Here is an answer example: "To me, the most significant difference between marketing and advertising is that advertising is simply one component of an entire marketing plan. The term marketing encompasses topics such as public relations, distributions, sales, market research, and more." Here is an answer example: "Marketing refers to an entire plan when it comes to approach and distribution. Advertising is simply one facet of a marketing plan."30. 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, social media, websites, webinars, online courses, and more. Speak to the forms of digital media you are most experienced with while being sure to address the types listed in the Sage Publications job description. Here is an answer example: "In my current role I work primarily with online channels such as YouTube and IGTV, creating educational video content. I also have experience working on projects related to gamification for kids' education. I would rate my knowledge in this area an 8 out of 10, leaving me very confident that I would meet your requirements." Here is an answer example: "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 education videos for YouTube and other long-form video content platforms."
