AMV BBDO

Account Executive, Account Management at AMV BBDO

Application Advice: Don't write or say what you think the answer is, or what you feel they want to hear. At this entry level, you aren't expected to know the answers but you are supposed to be able to convey your personality - so be honest.

Interview Advice: Obvious questions are adverts you like, or thoughts of current discussions in the industry, or commenting on your CV and skills. But I was also asked obscure things like my favorite film, where I saw myself in 10 years time, what I did for pleasure / what my interests were.

Application Advice: Any experience can be relevant, from writing, to office work, to sampling or working at events so be sure to make it clear that you can multitask and learn from others.

Interview Advice: Ensure you are friendly and willing to get your hands dirty - the first job in PR is hard and you can end up doing all manner of random (but fun!) jobs so it's good to portray that in your interview, as well as a hunger to learn from others and develop your skills.

Account Manager, Social Biddable at Mindshare

Application Advice: There is loads of material available online that you can do which will give you the edge over other candidates. There are also certificates that you can get online which will help as well. Make sure there are no mistakes on the CV. It may sound funny, but when you are applying to loads of companies looking for a job, making slight tweaks in the CV so that it fits best with the company, you will be surprised how many CV's have mistakes.

Interview Advice: Be confident and be yourself. Prepare yourself, relax and don't be scared of the interviewer. They are as worried about hiring as you're anxious on being hired. Be positive, this helps both parties to relax and be more comfortable. You will have a better chance of leaving a positive impression.
