What will you be asked in a PR Executive interview?

by Sarah & Craig

We’re often asked for our advice on the best way to prepare for a PR Executive or PR Account Executive interview.

Here are some questions that you’re likely to be asked and should have an idea of how to answer –

  • What do you know about our agency?
  • Why are you interested in a career in PR?
  • Where there any of our recent campaigns that were of particular interest to you and why?
  • Why would you be a good employee for us?
  • What can you bring to the role?
  • How would your friends / previous employers describe you?
  • Do you have strong grammar and spelling?
  • Have you ever written a press release?
  • Do you enjoy writing?
  • Would you be confident dealing with clients and talking to journalists on the phone?
  • What are your career ambitions?
  • Do you have any questions for us?
