Not sure about media, but brand strategy, what do you read? A campaign you like and why? Why do you want to be a strategist? A big one lately has been asking about “your approach.” I.e., How do you research, brief, collaborate. Good luck!🍀

Oh and be prepared to tell a good story about how what you learned in media will help you (i.e comms planning, data viz and storytelling). Why is this a logical next step for you? They won’t ask that but you might wanna hit on it as part of a ‘tell me about yourself’ answer

I’m going to ask you about a brand you think has a good strategy and why. I’ll ask you a research related question but it might be hidden inside of another question. And I’m going to see if you’re a creative thinker.
