Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 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.

What are your go-to interview questions?

Sander Schwartz,President: FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment: I look for people with great energy, unbounded enthusiasm and self-confidence.

Charley Humbard, President & CEO of the UP network: We’re building a business and a brand. So I look for people who reflect our brand of value-based entertainment. I interview everyone from who will be at the front desk to the most senior jobs. And when I do that, it’s not necessarily for their expertise. It’s to see what makes them tick. Are they smart? Are they driven? Do they share our values?

Here’s the result of that mindset: We have had four people at our front desk. They’ve all been promoted into positions in digital, programming, production, and marketing. We have made it a point that no one gets in who doesn’t have the potential to be a leader. It’s worth it.

Jim Goss, SVP of Creative Services, On-Air Promotions & Short Form Programming, INSP: The key thing for me is to find people who have vision and passion, regardless of the position I’m hiring for. Even in a low-level job, you can have vision. In the TV business, very often you have people with Masters’ degrees and they’re being asked to do Craft Services. But if you step into the job saying, I’ll be the very best, people will take notice. Virtually every manager has paid their own dues and they will recognize that in others.
