    Interview process

    The first stage of the interview process took place over the phone. One of Camargue's recruitment team emailed in advanced, asking if we could have a short informal phone chat. The conversation was anything but! It was intensive, and lasted over half an hour. I was thrown straight in to the deep end, and was asked tougher questions than in any of the subsequent interviews. I remember the first question asked was, 'What is your understanding of crisis management within PR?... And describe a recent example you're aware of.'

    At the end of the phone conversation, I was asked to meet with the same member of the recruitment team the following day. This was far less formal, and was more of a job description before going over the logistics (salary expectancy, holidays, etc).

    I was then invited to an interview with a director of Camargue PR, which took place within four or five days. This was the main interview, and went particularly well. The director seemed to take a real interest in my studies and work experience, and we engaged in intellectual conversations, such as the future of print media and the conflict in Ukraine. I got the distinct feeling that the director was examining my character over my job credentials.

    Most difficult question

    I was asked: if you were assigned to the National Grid (one of Camargue's clients), how would you improve relations with angry locals opposed to the National Grid's expansion plans?

    That was relatively difficult to answer. But that was the limit. No really difficult questions were asked.

    Interview tips

    If interviewed by Camargue PR, make sure you are fully prepared and have done mountains of research; they were impressed by my knowledge and understanding of their client base and current campaigns.

    I would also recommend interviewees to bring examples of their work. After discussing my previous work experience in depth, I was asked if I had brought along any work to share. Unfortunately I hadn't, and I regret that to this day.
