Any tips on how to best prep for behavioral/fit interviews? I know there’s the STAR method, but looking to get insights on how you prep, how much time spent, what level of detail, vids/tutorials, etc

Write down all your experiences and contributions as if you’re narrating it to someone and then structure to make sure that the experiences fit STAR. Numbers are the key here and make sure you put forward the $/hrs contributions. Make sure you have 5-6 of those experiences and question yourself for any follow up questions that you might encounter from the interviewer and be prepared to answer them. Try not to repeat the same example with different interviewers. Read it out loud before an interviewer as if you’re answering but not just reading it

After a few long interview processes, I've learned that prior CPG experience is highly valued when entering any CPG industry (even in low- to mid-level roles). Can someone with experience recruiting in the space help explain the importance of the experience? Alternatively, would love to be able to "spin" my resume to help fill in the gaps that this lack of experience leaves.

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
