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.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"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."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"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 being distributed."
2.
Of all the media solutions we provide at Company ABC, which do you know the best?
It is imperative to thoroughly research Company ABC before you go in for your interview. Be sure to look carefully through the 'About Us' section on their website as well as anything to do with their clients or recent projects.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I researched Company ABC a lot before coming here today and see that you recently won an award for being the top (specific specialty) in the industry. This area is one that I specialize in as well. Because of my previous achievements in (specific specialty), I feel that I could make an impact right away."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I would say that, without a doubt, visual design is my strongest area of expertise when it comes to media solutions. I have many other areas of strength, such as A and B; however, this is my stand-out skill."
3.
Walk me through your experience in the television and/or radio industry.
Take a few minutes to walk the interviewer through your resume. Highlight any particular experience you may have with television and radio. Be concise and be sure to avoid speaking poorly of any previous employers and experiences.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I began my career in media in a volunteer role with my local television station. From there, I started to assist with writing broadcast scripts. I left that role to attend university and recently graduated with my communications degree. I am now looking for my first opportunity in media, and very much look forward to seeing my career grow with Company ABC."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have been working in the television and radio industry for the past eight years. After graduating with my degree in Media Studies and Mass Media, I joined our local radio station as a content writer. From there, I took on a role as a junior editor; then a team leader for a small team of editors. At this point, I am now looking for an opportunity to grow which is why I applied for this role with Company ABC. I love this industry and look forward to continuing my success here."
4.
What are your 3 favorite forms of entertainment?
The interviewer would like to know the types of media and entertainment that you enjoy consuming on a regular basis. Talk to the interviewer about your favorite forms of entertainment and be sure to include why they are your favorite.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My favorite forms of entertainment have always been reality tv, podcasts, and celebrity-based news. I have always wanted to become a gossip columnist and find that these forms of entertainment spark my creativity and keep me informed on trends in the media."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"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, documentaries, and podcasts that focus on economics and business."
5.
If Company ABC 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.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"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."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"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."
