This edition includes the top job listings in the Television, Media and Ad Agency markets, professional development advice from national experts, your Q & A’s with our experts, and a summary of executive moves among top companies. 

Levels of an Interview

I talked to my HR friend last weekend and I asked him to tell me about a great interview he conducted.

He told me of a candidate, was doing well, but then my friend asked him to describe a time when something didn’t go as planned at his job.    

The candidate said, “I received an email from my boss asking me to create a promotional video about the company.  She had several ideas and was firm on the content if not the method of presenting the content.  Then she left for an extended business trip and someone else became the point person.  Again, I was told to include certain things but the way it was presented was up to me.  I would take care of the video, and the audio would be taken care of by them, separately.  I worked on, and presented several different videos.  Though she liked them all, none of them were to her satisfaction.”

“What did you do then?” my friend asked.

“I realized that she wanted something very specific, but was having trouble explaining it to me.  Though creative and smart, she has never been involved with video production.  I then asked her to create a script that illustrated exactly what she had imagined, what graphics she wanted with what voice over and in what order.” 

”So did that solved your problem?”

”Not exactly.  Normally I would have the voice over first and work the audio, then the video.  But the person doing the voice over wasn’t immediately available and time was tight.  This makes things particularly difficult because the timing of the audio needs to match the video.  So I would have to approximate the timing and hoped it matched the voice over.”

”And did that work?”

”No, for several reasons.  First, unknown to me, I was expected to provide background music to be played under the voice over.  I chose some copyright free music that had sort of a worldly sound to it.  No one liked it.  So I asked if she could provide some suggestions for the background music, she agreed.  But I know, because I have the very same problem all the time, matching music to a video is a very difficult process.  It’s got to feel right.  So we got bogged down in the background music.  And the video needed to be completed in 36 hours.”

”So what happened then?”

”We finally found a piece a music that worked beautifully, so everything seemed to be on track, but the voice over suddenly became a problem.  Their equipment wasn’t working and they couldn’t get the script recorded.  I’m able to do decent audio from my home office, so I called my neighbor who has a booming voice and asked him to read the script.  We were done in 30 minutes and in another hour and a half, the final edit for the promotional video was done.”

”How did it turn out?”

“Really well.  We all joked that the video should be called the disaster, because it was while making it.  But because I had to do some many different versions of the same material, my knowledge of the program I used to create it, grew tremendously.  I became a better editor because of the process and the final product was much better than the first several versions.”

“Anything else good come out of it?”

“Absolutely, like I said, everyone I work with is really smart, so all of us realized that the process created the problem as much as anything.  So we now have in place a very specific schematic for the next time we need a project created.” 

My friend said the candidate passed on every criteria; that he had worked through a difficult problem without blaming anyone, he was tenacious, he improvised when needed, he recognized that even during a challenging process, he pulled some good from it and that, in unison with his bosses, created a system that would avoid the same situation from happening again.  Everything you want in a worker.

And then I realized just how good of an interviewer my friend was.  Without knowing anything about video production, he asked general questions that allowed him to assess the candidate’s knowledge and abilities, and get a good sense of what kind of worker he is. 

My friend calls them levels, and in any good interview, there has to be at least five levels to certain questions.  This is where he gathers the important information about a perspective employee, not in the original question, but deep into the levels. 

Not only do these levels allow the interviewer to assess ability, but also the intangibles that never come out in an interview unless the interviewer pursues these layers. 

Are you ready for this kind of interview?

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
How to Deal with Workplace Stress
by Gena Yuvette Davis

Working in the City of Angels can be far from angelic. Los Angeles ranks as the fourth largest economy and the second largest market in America. Now, combine this with the fact that L.A. is one of the top ten most populated US cities, unemployment is up, the commute is still brutal, and for those who are still employed, they must deal with more work and less resources. 

Believe it or not, there are people who still like their jobs. When the work is satisfying and advancement is evident, we are more productive and don’t mind taking on extra duties when warranted. But, with all the meetings, reports, employee problems and office politics, there is going to be a time when our jobs stress us out.  How you cope with stress will determine if you are the kind of career professional who will advance to the upper rings of senior management or die trying.

Here are a few lessons to help you deal with workplace stress:

  • Breathe – It maybe cliche but it works.  When you find yourself overwhelmed and stressed, take some deep breaths. It helps to lower your stress level.
  •  Create a schedule – If you have several projects going at once, create a timeline for when your projects are due.  Also, if at all possible, delegate projects to others.  You do not have to do everything yourself. 
  •  Learn to say “No” – There is nothing wrong with saying no if you have too much on your plate already.  Decline that extra project when your boss asks if you can take it on. You’ll save yourself from unnecessary stress and your performance on the work you do have will be better.
  • Take lunch – Many think it increases their productivity or shows commitment if they work through lunch. Well, it doesn’t. You need to eat something, taking a break and fellowship with your co-workers. This allows you to refocus and get more work done. If you are tired and hungry, you won’t be able to think and are less productive.
  • Get out of the office – If stress is getting to, leave the office for a while.  Go for a walk, go to the gym or take a nap. Do whatever you need to do to rest your mind and gain some perspective.  Once you come back to work to tackle the project, you will be more refreshed and will do a much better job.

Stress is part of our lives.  As you move up the corporate ladder, you are going to deal with more and more stress. Don’t let stress ruin your career or workplace experience. Take steps to manage your stress level.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by John Cox

I know you can never be late to an interview, but how early is too early?

The general consensus is 10-15 minutes early is fine, anything over that starts to get awkward.  In parts of Japan, being early is considered as rude as being late.  But in the US, it’s good to be a little early, check in with the receptionist, sit down and calm your nerves.  Plus, there may be forms to fill out.

I have an interview with a great company, but everyone there is dressed casually. Do I wear a suit and run the risk of appearing to “conservative” or do I dress in accordance to the company’s culture and run the risk of being underdressed for the interview?

Wear a suit.  It’s always better to be overdressed than too casual, especially for an interview.  Dressed in a suit, you show the interviewer that you are serious about this job and a polo shirt and khakis simply don’t have the same impact.
