Are you a creative job seeker or freelancer looking to land work? If so, plan to field the following five common interview questions:
What projects are you working on right now? This interview question can uncover whether or not you’re staying busy and striving to improve your craft. Use your answer to speak to your ambition, expertise and motivation.
What tech tools do you use on a daily basis? Hiring managers are looking to gauge how strategically you approach your work as well as whether the company can support your equipment needs.
What do you like to do outside of work? Many employers believe that people who are passionate about interests outside the office typically perform better on the job.
Hiring managers want to know what drives you, whether it’s
mentoring kids or
making cootie catchers.
How would you describe your design style? In addition to revealing your approach to creative work, your answer can help hiring managers determine if your design aesthetic will complement (or clash with) the company’s branding.
What do you think of our marketing/creative materials? Hiring managers want to know that you have done your research, are familiar with their work and have an educated opinion. Share your honest thoughts tactfully and succinctly.
