How to Answer
Record labels such as The Beggars Group have a few purposes, which include:
- Marketing of recorded music
- Marketing of music videos
- New artist recruitment & development
- Music publishing
- Copyright enforcement
Discuss what you believe to be the primary purpose of a record label.
"I believe the purpose of a record label is to coordinate the production and manufacturing of a musical artist or band's work. A label will then lead efforts in marketing, promotion, and distribution. Copyright enforcement on behalf of the artists, their songs, and their videos is also a large part of a record label's job. Lastly, record labels and their scouts actively work on talent scouting and the development of new artists."
Second Answer Example
"The primary purpose of a label is to sign talented artists and then represent their work. These efforts could include marketing, campaigns, promotions, and even distribution. A record label also works hard to protect copywritten material on behalf of the artists."

How to Answer
Did you know that people with a friend at work are 7x more likely to engage in their work fully? (Source: Forbes) The interviewer would like to see if a friend referred you to this position, a former co-worker, or an industry acquaintance. This question is another way of the interviewer asking where you heard about the role, and if you have any connections from within. The BeggarsGroup may also have employee referral programs. You can keep your answer brief and to the point.
"I am friends with a professional recruiter who recommend that I check out your company's job postings. She mentioned that you had an excellent reputation and that everyone she has placed with your company has seen long tenure."
Second Answer Example
"My best friend referred me to this job posting. She is one of the interns at XL Recordings; Jessica Smith. She has said some incredible things about The Beggar Grou, all which prompted me to apply!"
Discuss the personality traits you believe a professional in the music industry should possess and be sure to address the fact that you will bring these skills to The Beggars Group.
"From reading your job description and knowing a fair amount about the entertainment industry I believe an entertainment professional like myself should be a go-getter, persuasive, and determined never to take no as an answer. We must be ready to hustle and get the job done no matter what it takes. With that said, there should also be a softer side as it's important to be approachable, honest, and transparent with clients and artists, alike."
Second Answer Example
"I believe the most successful music industry pros are ones who seek knowledge, good relationships and get the job done. When you show confidence in what you do, you are overall more persuasive and will make a bigger impact in your work. I am a confident person with great focus and believe my personality will be an excellent match for The Beggars Group."
The Beggars Group is one of the largest independent groups of labels in the world. They possess a unique workplace culture, employing the best the industry has to offer. Company culture is a significant factor when looking for a new position, and it goes both ways. Talk to the interviewer about the types of personalities with which you best work. Be sure to remain positive and avoid using this as an opportunity to speak poorly of previous colleagues.
Think of a few traits that co-workers should have, and include that in your answer. Such as, motivated to succeed, enjoys collaborating with others, and passionate about their careers.
"I best enjoy working with driven individuals, people who are positive, energetic, and take accountability for their work. I do have the ability to work with a large variety of individuals; however, these are the ideal traits I would see in future colleagues."
Second Answer Example
"I enjoy working with people who are driven to succeed, but not at the expense of others. I want to be around people who pick each other up and keep the team moving. I appreciate that this is the culture present at The Beggar's Group and the fact that you give your artists room to create and be themselves."
6. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your technical abilities? The Beggars Group would like to know how you rate your technical skills. Likely, they will mention specific tech skills in the job posting or job description. First, on a scale of 1-10, discuss how skilled are you in their tech requirements. Try to avoid giving yourself a 10, since nobody is perfect, and you do not want to come across as overly confident or someone who has no room for feedback and improvement. Alternately, avoid giving yourself too little credit. You do not want to paint the picture that you are a tech dud! Try to remain in the 7.5-9.5 range while staying honest and accurate. Be sure to list which programs, apps, or systems in which you shine! Here is an answer example: "I rate my technical skills as a 9/10 as I will, on occasion, have times when I am not as savvy as I would like to be. My supervisor and co-workers will attest to my ability to pick up new tech very easily. I would say I'm strongest in Python and am getting better every day." Here is an answer example: "I will rate myself an eight because I value strong technical capabilities but, just like most people, I have things to learn. My strongest technical skills are in the Microsoft Office suite, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint."7. What is your personal mission statement? The Beggars Group has built a successful business on the mission of allowing their artists the time to develop, affording them freedom and support, releasing the best the decade had to offer. Now, they want to know what your personal mission statement is. Not everyone has a mission statement or personal mantra just off the cuff. In business, especially when entering leadership, this is an important question to ponder. Do you have a quote that inspires you or a saying that you grew up with that resonates with you? Here is an answer example: "My mission is always to be a person in business that others can look up to. It is important to me that I create a legacy of integrity." Here is an answer example: "I heard a funny mantra the other day, 'I want to be the kind of person my dog already thinks I am.' As cute as it is, it is true. I want to be kind-hearted to my co-workers, understanding, and reliable."8. When a significant problem arises, what is your first reaction? The interviewer at The Beggars Group wants to know if your reactions to problems reflect maturity and professionalism. How you react will significantly determine how you fit with their existing team.
Perhaps your computer crashes, and you realize you may have just lost all of your hard work. Or maybe you are limited on time and have a deadline rapidly approaching. Demonstrate to the interviewer that you take a very systematic approach to problem-solving, rather than reacting impulsively when a problem occurs. Here is an answer example: "Depending on the situation, I will gather my resources and team and collaborate on making the necessary happen on a shortened timeline so that we can deliver our results in the most efficient manner possible. Usually, we learn something about ourselves, the team, or a more effective approach to the next problem in the process." Here is an answer example: "When a major problem arises, my first instinct is to jump in and fix the issue. I am a do-er and also think in a reverse-engineering manner. I start with the desired result and work my way backward. From there, I figure out where the snag occurred."9. Tell me about a time that you naturally took on a leadership role without being asked. Did you enjoy being a leader? Were you happy with the outcome? The interviewer would like to know if you have a natural ability and desire to be a leader, or if you prefer to be a follower. Being a leader gives us a different perspective and allows you to grow in your views. Explain that you enjoy helping others develop, while learning things yourself, and show that you are the type of leader that hopes to inspire others. Here is an answer example: "Our marketing director was unexpectedly out of the office on a family emergency for two weeks. I volunteered to take on her role because I knew it well and had been there the longest. I encouraged collaboration with the team, divided tasks evenly, and incorporated daily team meetings to ensure that we were on the right track and that no detail slipped by us. When the director returned, she ended up implementing a couple of my processes and complimented me on my dedication to the team and agency. It felt amazing to be a leader." Here is an answer example: "Being new to my career, I did not consider myself a natural leader; however, when we recently had a new intern join the admin team, I took her under my wing. I wanted to see her succeed, so I took her out for lunch, explained the office dynamics, and encouraged her to ask questions. It feels terrific to share my knowledge."10. Have you ever worked in a cross-functional environment? Working for a large company such as The Beggars Group, you will be asked to work on a project with teams from another department. Your ability to work with cross-functional teams will be a significant asset.
Maybe you headed a project which required you to collaborate with the members of the sales teams. You may have had the opportunity to organize a volunteer activity or team building exercise, company-wide. Share any challenges that came up and what you learned from the experience. Here is an answer example: "Exposure to cross-functional teamwork in my current position is widespread. I believe that when expectations are communicated clearly from the beginning, a cross-functional team project can be very successful. I go into these types of projects with an understanding that everyone has their strengths and limitations based on their expertise and job function." Here is an answer example: "Nearly every project that I submit, as a 4th-year university student, is in collaboration with another group of students. I like this because it creates a broader resource base and encourages teamwork."11. Why should The Beggars Group hire you? Interviewers at The Beggars Group 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, new music or entertainment 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. Here is an answer example: "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 media marketing, and more specifically, excitement for music and entertainment. Having been an avid fan of many of your artists, 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." Here is an answer example: "You should hire me because of the qualifications I bring through my recent degree in Entertainment Law. I am passionate about the music industry and the rights of artists and recording labels, alike. I am excited about the idea of delivering value to The Beggars Grou."12. Do you prefer to be behind the scenes or in the limelight? The interviewer would like to know more about your personality so they can place you in the correct job function. Would you consider yourself an entertainer or more of a worker bee? Perhaps you are a blend of both! Here is an answer example: "I can change from enjoying the limelight to being behind the scenes, simply depending on the type of project. I would say that I am a healthy balance of both; however, I do find myself in the limelight a bit more often because I naturally take on leadership roles and am skilled when it comes to public speaking." Here is an answer example: "My instinct is to be behind the scenes whenever possible. Although I am very outgoing, I often prefer to do the background work, like research and data analysis, and then pass my findings along to someone more of a natural in the limelight."13. How would you market an artist when you do not enjoy their work? Without explicitly discussing any artists that you do not care for, try talking more about the approach you would take if The Beggars Group asked you to help market them. Setting your musical tastes or personal preferences aside, would you work hard to ensure this artist got the most out of their record deal? Here is an answer example: "I understand that not everyone at The Beggars Group will like absolutely every talent that is signed. That's just part of the job, and it's good to have preferences when it comes to taste in music. That's part of what makes us unique. If I were asked to market an artist whom I did not particularly enjoy, I would work just as hard to market and promote them as if they were my all-time favorite. Through the process, I would likely develop a new appreciation for the work!" Here is an answer example: "My personal preferences would never have an impact on how hard I would work for an artist signed with The Beggars Group. Whether I enjoy their work or not, it's my job to help them succeed, create profit opportunities for the label, and operate at 100% capacity every day."14. What do you think about the future of record labels? Since you are interviewing at The Beggars Group, it would be in your best interest to be prepared with some positive statements on record labels and their future outlook. Record companies have been around since the dawn, but there has been a lot of chatter regarding their footing in the entertainment industry. Speak to the interviewer about where you believe record labels will be, in the future. Here is an answer example: "I believe that record labels are a must for any serious artist and, because of that, companies like The Beggars Group aren't going anywhere. What we will be doing is pivoting our focus more digitally than we ever have before. The competition will continue to be fierce when it comes to online and social marketing efforts for artists; however, I am ready and prepared to bring the ingenuity and grit that it takes to remain a stand-out in the entertainment industry." Here is an answer example: "I see record labels relying less on dollars for records sold and more on royalties from streaming services, merchandise, and endorsements. I also foresee changes when it comes to ownership of intellectual property. Artists have more tools available to them to control outcomes now - many more than they had in the 1990s, for instance. In the future, I see a healthier collaboration between record labels and their artists."15. Talk about a recent entertainment campaign that caught your eye. The Beggars Group puts big dollars into marketing and promoting their artists. The interviewer wants to see that you understand the difference between a mediocre campaign and an effective one. Think about the latest entertainment advertisement that you saw, heard, or witnesse. Why did it catch your eye, and what made it so memorable. Be sure to show the interviewer your enthusiasm for marketing and promotions. Here is an answer example: "I believe that the best marketing campaigns are ones where the artists meet their fans where they are. One example of this that I find unforgettable is DJ Khaled's use of Snapchat. Here, he talks about his path to happiness, which has made him a voice in internet culture. Aside from his music, Khaled is now known for his catchphrases like 'I appreciate you' and 'You the best.' His loyal following has remained, and he continues to broaden his reach." Here is an answer example: "One campaign that has stuck with me is one from Lee Scott, a hip-hop artist from the UK. When he dropped his album, he first released an exclusive premium version to 100 fans. Later, he created an exclusive bundle pack and charged even more for the next 100 fans. Lastly, upon general release, he charged premium rates by including merchandise into the packs. This slow-release strategy picked up a lot of PR and created a great amount of anticipation among his fan base."16. In your opinion, what is the most influential form of media today? Have a meaningful conversation with the interviewer on media influence. With so many forms of media out there, which do you feel is the most influential at the moment? Be sure to back your answer. Here is an answer example: "I feel that the most influential form of media today is social media and online content. As a whole, the human race wants fast, easy to consume, entertainment news. Our rate of consumption is unprecedented, and the fastest way to access it is through online content sharing." Here is an answer example: "There are many important forms of media today - so many, in fact, that people seem to be getting overwhelmed. I would still say that traditional media, in the form of television and the daily news, is at the top when it comes to the number of people influenced and the quality of the content distributed."17. What do you know about The Beggars Group subsidiaries and labels? Major record labels such as The Beggars Group will have sub-labels and other subsidiary companies to serve various genres of music and entertainment. Show the interviewer that you have done your homework on their company before your interview by listing a few of these things that you should know. Keep in mind that you don't need to start listing off every single subsidiary of The Beggars Group. You have to show the interviewer that you are engaged and genuinely interested in their organization. Here is an answer example: "I know that your most well-known sister companies and labels include 4AD, Rough Trade Records, Matador Records, XL Recordings, and Young Turks. I have researched The Beggars Group extensively and was very interested in finding that you signed Cat Power to your Matador Records label. She is one of my favorite female artists. I am eager to learn even more about your diverse label." Here is an answer example: "I know that The Beggars Group has been around for decades, representing artists such as Cat Power, Radiohead, and Chavez. Your labels encompass multiple musical genres, including hip hop, country, pop, and even jazz. The labels I am most familiar with include Matador Records and XL Recordings."18. What is your favorite source for entertainment news and industry updates? The interviewer wants to see that you have a thumb on the beat of what's happening in the music industry. The Beggars Group needs to hire people who are curious and want to know what's going on minute-to-minute, always knowing which trends and topics to follow. Discuss how you remain up to date in the industry by mentioning a few different tools and resources. Here is an answer example: "First and foremost, I follow The Beggars Group on Twitter for important live updates on what's happening in music entertainment news. I also follow a lot of top artists on Instagram, and I read Billboard magazine regularly. I fully understand the importance of being up to date on entertainment news and industry happenings." Here is an answer example: "My top sources for entertainment news are all of the music awards! I watch the Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, the Grammy's, the MTV Music Awards and more. Also, I follow many top artists and labels on social media, which provides me with up to the minute entertainment news."19. Who are considered the 'Big 3' record labels, and how can The Beggars Group compete? The 'Big 3' record labels include:
- Sony BMG
- Universal Music Group
- Warner Music Group
These three record labels own nearly 80% of the music market. Since you are interviewing for The Beggars Group be prepared to discuss the other competition. How do they compete with each other to have the best talent in the music and entertainment industry? Here is an answer example: "Sony BGM, Warner Music and Universal Music make up the 'Big 3' in the music industry. I believe that the best way The Beggars Group competes with their competitors is to work hard to sign the worlds' most celebrated artists to their core label. This approach includes being competitive when it comes to what you offer the artist. Also, working hard to scout hot new talent is a significant factor in your ability to remain ahead of your competitors." Here is an answer example: "The big three record labels are Sony BGM, Warner Music Group, and Universal Music Group. Together, these three hold 80% of the music market. The best way to remain competitive is to continue gaining access to the world's core talent and signing them to your primary label. The second part of this strategy is to be the first to find and sign hot new talent."20. The world of entertainment never sleeps. Are you willing to work long hours, evenings, weekends, and holidays? The interviewer wants assurance that you understand the work at The Beggars Group isn't just schmoozing, attending celebrity events and being a part of posh promotions. Working for a record label is hard work and requires grinding into the nights, weekends, and on holidays. Assure the interviewer that you are ready for this commitment. Here is an answer example: "I currently work 60+ hour work weeks with a 24/7 cell phone and am on my email most of the day. I am prepared to work long and hard hours, doing what it takes to succeed in the entertainment industry." Here is an answer example: "As a recent graduate, I am well equipped and highly prepared for the fact that I need to work demanding weeks and long hours, to rise above the rest in this competitive industry."21. Who is your favorite band or musician, represented by The Beggars Group? Why are they your favorite? Having an answer to this means that you have to have conducted a fair amount of research on The Beggars Group before going into your interview. Think of the music that you listen to the most, and be sure The Beggars Group represents them. You can chat a bit about why you like this band or musician, and what you hope to see more of, from them, soon. Be sure to exude positivity and enthusiasm in your response! Here is an answer example: "My favorite musician represented by The Beggars Group would be Grimes. I like her because of her longevity in the music industry, considering she has been releasing music since the early 2000s. Being a fellow Canadian, of course, I am a fan, and I was thrilled when she received the Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year in 2012." Here is an answer example: "The Beggars Group has signed Torres, and I cannot get enough of her music lately! The sound transcends musical genres. I also appreciate how transparent she is about where her inspiration is sourced from her adoption to her religious upbringing."22. What are some of the biggest challenges you would expect a record label or entertainment company to come across? There is a lot of discussion surrounding record labels and the need for them in our ever-changing digital world. Some of the challenges that The Beggars Group may be facing today include:
- Streaming services gaining market leverage
- Artists becoming more educated and demanding more from their label
- Difficulty adapting to changing digital environments
- Loss of control when it comes to recording and distribution options
- Significant loss of revenue over the years
Discuss in a positive light, the issues that The Beggars Group may be facing, and how you believe they have been overcoming these challenges. Here is an answer example: "I believe that the digital world is changing the record label game at a fast pace. I think that the biggest challenge is keeping up to date with these changes, and pivoting quickly enough to remain relevant. From what I have seen, The Beggars Group has fought hard and won when it comes to maintaining relevancy in this industry. You have done so by being an activist for indie artists; for instance, expressing concerns about how Apple Music pays out hard-working artists." Here is an answer example: "From what I have observed while preparing for this interview, one of the biggest challenges a record label faces today are the streaming services out there who are gaining market leverage and creating a loss of revenue for labels and artists. I believe that The Beggars Group has overcome this through brand loyalty as well as the fact that you have signed artists with a highly loyal fan base."23. Name three artists you believe will have a breakthrough this year. The interviewer wants to see that you follow the music industry and that you have a genuine interest in what they do at The Beggars Group. If possible, come prepared to discuss artists from this particular label. This type of example will show the interviewer that you have done your homework on their company and who they represent. Here is an answer example: "Three artists under The Beggars Group whom I believe will have a breakthrough this year include (list hot new artists). The marketing efforts put into their latest releases and the fact that they have had successful collaborations with other artists on your label are strong indicators of future success." Here is an answer example: "The artists that have caught my eye this year include (list hot new artists). I think it's great that The Beggars Group has put a lot of emphasis on finding new and diverse talent throughout multiple musical genres. I look forward to seeing these artists flourish in their careers."24. What are your 3 favorite forms of entertainment? The interviewer would like to know the types of media and entertainment that you enjoy consuming regularly. Talk to the interviewer about your favorite forms of entertainment and be sure to include why they are your top choice. Here is an answer example: "My favorite forms of entertainment have always been watching reality tv, listening to podcasts, and going to concerts. I have always wanted to become a music writer and journalist, and find that these forms of entertainment spark my creativity and keep me informed on trends in the entertainment industry." Here is an answer example: "There are so many great forms of entertainment media available to us. I am more traditional and would say that my favorite forms still include print media such as music magazines, documentaries, and podcasts that focus on the entertainment industry."25. What could The Beggars Group do to increase record sales for our lesser-known artists? The Beggars Group knows very well how to promote their lesser-known artists; however, they want to see if you can think creatively. The way you respond will also show the interviewer what you know about record labels and how things operate in the music and entertainment business. Discuss how you would use the marketing trends of today to boost new artists' exposure. Here is an answer example: "The internet has opened endless possibilities when it comes to new artist promotion. If I were to put a plan into place for increasing record sales for lesser-known artists, I would begin with social media marketing efforts on YouTube and Instagram; primarily with Instastories. I would also seek out a collaboration between the new artist and a better-known artist from The Beggars Group label." Here is an answer example: "The opportunities that we have today when it comes to reaching potential new fans is remarkable. I would begin by reaching out to music blogs, podcasts, and online magazines who need to put out fresh content. I would pitch a feature on the up and coming artist and then roll with the momentum from there, approaching more digital media sources."26. With which sector of the music and entertainment industry are you least experienced? Similar to, 'What is your greatest weakness?' this question asks you to disclose the area where you are the least knowledgeable. It's essential that you highlight the area where you are least experienced while still showing the interviewer that you are confident in your ability to learn. Here is an answer example: "When it comes to the music and entertainment industry, unions, and guilds are the areas where I am least experienced. I am aware that many artists are part of a union; however, I am not entirely sure how those union agreements impact the work done here at The Beggars Group. I am eager to learn the inner workings of topics such as this." Here is an answer example: "I am least experienced when it comes to entertainment law both locally and internationally. I have performed some research and read many articles; however, I feel it will take more dedication from me to grasp the complexities of entertainment law."27. How does your post-secondary education apply to the music and entertainment industry? The interviewer would like to know more about your post-secondary education, and how it will benefit The Beggars Group, should you be hired. Expand on what you already have laid out on your resume and be prepared to discuss how particular coursework will translate well into this role.
If you bring post-graduate work experience, give examples of how your education has helped you succeed in your career up to this point.
If you are a recent graduate, you could choose to discuss one or two classes that equipped you with skills you can apply to this job. Here is an answer example: "I have a Masters' in Law and Entertainment, which gave me top-notch industry knowledge from the start of my career. The courses I took helped me to develop skills in short and long-term strategic planning in this competitive industry. I also learned a great deal about project management, performing arts, and cultural entrepreneurship." Here is an answer example: "I recently completed a series of courses geared for entertainment management and artist relations. These courses will round out my Business Law degree, offering me a balanced perspective on entertainment and the law. I look forward to applying what I have learned in this role with The Beggars Group."28. What are your career goals in the next 3-5 years with The Beggars Group? Assure the interviewer that you are interested in forging a long-term career with them by discussing the career path you foresee if hired. What are your career goals, and how do you hope to achieve them, with The Beggars Group? Here is an answer example: "In the next few years I would like to move into a more serious leadership function. In my current company, there is little room for growth, which is why I feel that working for The Beggars Group would fit into my long-term career goals. I want to work for you and grow into a leadership role with your organization." Here is an answer example: "5 years from now, I would like to be supervising or managing a team of my own. I feel like I am progressing at a rate that will make this a possibility."29. If The Beggars Group hired you today, what would you accomplish first? When you start a new position, it is essential to set a goal on how you will make a positive impact quickly after being hired. Tell the interviewer what your impact goal is, should you be the successful candidate. Here is an answer example: "When we were speaking earlier, about sales targets in this position, you mentioned that most new sales professionals hit their KPI's after 120 days. If hired today, my goal would be to exceed my KPI's after the first 90 days. I plan to make a positive impact very quickly." Here is an answer example: "If hired today, I would start with analyzing all quantifiable data from the last month, quarter, and year to identify any bottlenecks or shortfalls and set a plan to correct them."30. Where do you find new music? It is essential to the interviewer that you bring a keen and genuine interest in the music and entertainment industry. The Beggars Group works hard for its artists to gain exposure to new fans, through multiple platforms. Talk to the interviewer about where you go most frequently to find new music. Try to add some variety into your answer by discussing resources such as articles, blogs, charts, or even music magazines. Here is an answer example: "I like to hear about new artists through a variety of resources. First, I subscribe to The Beggars Group blog, where I get articles and information on newly signed talent and up and coming artists. I have been a long-term reader of Billboard magazine as well." Here is an answer example: "I like to learn about new music through podcasts such as 'The Ongoing History of New Music' where they feature '5 songs you must hear this week.' Sources like this one give me exposure to indie artists I may not typically hear of. I also read a couple of online mags such as Billboard and Vibe."
