Preparing for an interview is a big question, digital marketing is very vast now and nobody knows what question interview will ask you. But another fact is a number of job openings are growing with the growth of digital marketers. I have attended many interviews also taken too, my team helped many of our students to get places in Accenture, Google, Facebook and some other top companies as well as mid & small size digital marketing agency. Here I would like to give you some basic facts you should not forget while preparing for the interview.
Important key factors to keep in mind:
1. Company Services/ Product or what they do?
2. Job Description
These 2 things if you can understand properly then clearing interview will be easy for you. The company profile will give you an idea of what the company does, what product or service they sell. Based on this thing you can analyze what they need from a digital marketer. You need to prepare your own strategy to promote and sell their product or services before going for the interview.
The job description will tell you what they want from you, read carefully the job requirement, skills required and other important data. This data will help you to prepare some of the questions for the interview. If they are looking for SEO then you need to focus more towards the keywords, link building and other techniques of SEO.
Now how to prepare a resume for digital marketing interview:
Most of the people have a common resume, but this is not the best way to approach for the interview. For shortlisting always prepare resume wherein top or first-page highlight about your skills and experience. The second page onwards writes in more details about your experience and expertise.
Once you are shortlisted and going for an interview, prepare a resume which is sort and describes a lot about your experience, skills, certifications, achievements etc.
Freshers always prepare 1 or 2 pages resume, not more than 2 page and experienced can prepare based on their work and expertise but not more than 5.
