Account Management

What are some questions you could expect when interviewing for an AE position? Trying to nail this interview tomorrow, so any advice/tips are welcome. Thanks!

What's the most important thing you learned as an AAE? Three most important? Why are you looking for something new? Why this agency? Why this brand? What work do you most admire? What work from our office? Not from our office? How would your boss describe you? What do you like about your current agency and role? Dislike? We work odd hours here because of the client, are you flexible with your time? Why did you become an account person? Has that impression changed in the time you've been working in the industry? What do you want to get out of your next role that you haven't in your current role? Why not move to another account within your current agency? Prepare thoughtful, articulate, not-too-rehearsed answers to those and any other questions you've had in any other interview, using your answers to highlight and specify your ambition, your POV on great work and the state of the industry, and why you think this agency and account are right for you. Other than that, use the interview to interview the agency. You are deciding if they are right for you, not just the other way around. Showcase your curiosity and passion.
