Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
11.05.13

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, November 5, 2013, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

Welcome to Leadership Lessons, the column that focuses on conversations with senior managers and leaders in the TV world, speaking candidly about their professional journeys and how that informs what they look for when hiring new employees. Today, questions/answers about interviews.

What are some of the things you look for when interviewing people?
That they have a strong personal brand: what makes them unique? How do they add value to the team and organization? How do they approach problem-solving and consensus-building across organizations?

How passionate are they about the business and their respective area of focus?

Diana Mogollon, General Manager, mun2

What are some of the qualities you look for when interviewing candidates?
An interview is almost like a date. You’re going to spend more time with a new employee than your spouse. So it’s important to know what drives the person. I don’t like to rush interviews. I prepare for them: I’d never read their resume 5 minutes before they walk in the door. During the interview, I try to make people comfortable. It shouldn’t be a one-sided conversation. I want to learn what motivates them; what their taste and style are. I ask questions like, “What are you watching on TV right now? What do you read? What’s interesting about social media today? Why did you get into cable TV?” Then it’s easier to morph the conversation into talking about IFC.

Nothing bothers me more than people who don’t do their homework before an interview. Know what’s going on and understand why.

Jennifer Caserta, President and General Manager, IFC

What are some of the things you look for when interviewing people?
I look for diversity, logic, and the thought process that went into their roles and companies they’ve chosen to work for. Their career choices provide an understanding of what motivates them, and what their short and long term ambitions and goals are.

I also want to find out what they are passionate about and how that relates to the role.

What interview questions do you like to ask?
I want to hear about which achievements they’re most proud of thus far. That tells me a lot. I also ask them to tell me about the best boss they’ve had and what made them a great supervisor. And I ask them what about this job and company interested them.

Laureen Ong, President, Travel Channel.
