- Why is the position open? (Could be someone left, or a new business win. Both of which prompt follow ups.) - What do you think is required for success from the person who fills this role? Are there any particular traits that have led people to success (or hindered them) in this role in the past? - Tell me about a piece of work you’re proud of, that reflects the direction the agency is headed. - No place is perfect. What do you think the agency / department could improve upon?
