Is there such thing as too much ass kissing in a job interview? Or everyone likes for the interviewee to do their research and act like they would really like to work for the company and the creative director they are interviewing with?

If I kiss ass, I feel I direct it more towards the agency. Maybe too much though. I find myself maybe going on and on too much. I’ve yet to interview with CDs who I’ve been following for a while. Plenty who’s work I really like though. I usually point out something I really like from their books. That’s just me though.

Yes.

I think yes. Don’t want to come off as smarmy

A difference without distinction.

I wasn’t being disingenuous. I was just excited and wanted to let the CDs know that I respect them and their work and the company.

A little goes a long way. And yes, it helps build rapport.
