What are the biggest challenges you see working with X client.. And what are you guys doing to address them

Goal of the phone interview is only to make it to the in person interview. Be interesting and interested, rather than trying to show how brilliant you are. Save that for the in person. I like: - what's the biggest challenge the team will face in the next year? - what qualities do you think the ideal candidate for this role needs? - what is the biggest opportunity area for the team/agency in the next year? - what is the culture of the team/agency like? - what recent piece of agency work are you most proud of and why? - what will the successful candidate in this role need to do to be successful? Also, always practice our loud a few times. It's weird but so valuable.
