Question 1 of 31

Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a client.

I think it is really important to go above and beyond for clients when possible. A good example of this is a recent brochure I created for a new client. The client needed the file delivered to their printer by noon that Friday to ensure the it could be printed and shipped on time. I uploaded the file to the printer's FTP site early that morning and sent them an email asking them to let me know they got the file. When I hadn't heard anything by 11:00 AM I called the printer and found out their server was down. I got in the car and personally drove it down to the printer because I knew it would damage my client's reputation if the brochures weren't delivered on time. The client was incredibly appreciative of my efforts and we've been working together ever since.
