Interview question for a creative team? (art director + writer)

Don't ask people negatively slanted questions. That's not an energy and creativity and calling on the best in people inducing strategy. Makes people shrink and worry about how to answer in a PC way in order to appease your expectations and you learn nothing about what makes them excited about who they are and what they bring.

👆nailed it. It's a "will this team bullshit or tell the truth" question. Works every time.

I would ask them about one or two projects in their book(s) in some depth

Ask them about their concepting process. If they have one. Pick one project in their book and ask them to explain three things that make it work so well. Both questions show their thought processes and ability to describe and present good work

What do you two fight over the most? Who usually offers to make peace first?

I’ve always wanted to be asked why we think we work as a team .... I feel like I have a good answer for that but no ones ever asked.

Love it.

Interviewed for Uber Strategy Manager- what a massive joke. Wouldn't tell me the comp on the first interview. Case studies are 3x the size of any other case study I've done for actual fortune 100 companies. And then interview with everyone and their mother, all who wax eloquent about my solutions. But then the last person gives me another case study to do. Towards the end, everyone and HR is giving me a verbal offer, telling me they're excited about me joining their team, I should join asap.

I’m 26 and I work at an RIA doing reporting but I’ve always wanted to work in investment banking. I have way too much in student debt ($150k) to go back to graduate school to try and get an investment banking internship. I don’t have my CFA but I would like to get it. Is it too late for me to break into the industry without prior ibanking experience? Should I retire that dream? Or is grad school the only way to get in?
