"My friends say they always know when I have been working the audio in my company's videos because my transitions between speakers are smooth and fade cleanly, instead of popping between them and clipping each other's sound."
Although working an audio switch board does not leave much room for creativity, other aspects of the job call for some creative play. This includes during the post editing process, and even in certain technical ways of adjusting audio as the show goes on. The candidate can discuss some creative ways they have made audio their own.
"There was a time where we had only three audio engineers on staff and I had to fill in more often. I was exhausted from working so many hours. However, this ultimately made me get more practice and learn more about various speakers so I could do my job better."
The candidate should discuss a time where they struggled in their work. This could be a time where they worked overtime or had to work under a severe time crunch. It could also be a time where personal stressors made working slow and difficult. However, the candidate should ultimately talk positively about the experience and how they found a way to persevere because of their passion for the job.
