Interview

This stage will be an interview conducted by Directors of the local branch you are applying for. In Iulia’s case, her interviewers were one of the IT Directors and a Business Analyst from London. This stage was broken up into two sections, a SWOT presentation and a classic interview taking a total of 1 hour to complete.

SWOT analysis presentation

You will be emailed 1-2 weeks before the day of your interview on a brief, explaining what you need to prepare for your presentation. Iulia, for example, delivered a 10 minute presentation consisting of a SWOT analysis on Universal Pictures, to analyse the impact of COVID-19 on the UK box office. Afterwards, the interviewers asked questions on her presentation before proceeding to the final interview.

Online interview

The interviewers will have your CV in front of them and they will ask questions relating to your previous experiences and links to the industry.

How to respond for success

Iulia kept eye contact with the camera and maintained a steady pace when talking. She would recommend asking questions back to the recruiters to demonstrate that you are interested in the industry, but also engaged in conversation, rather than being a robot. The interview is very friendly and NBCU are looking for a character to make sure you would be a good fit to the team. The interviewers typically ask less formal questions, discussing film and favourite shows to make sure that you are relaxed but maintain professional standards.

If you are the firm choice, NBCU will contact you within 1 week, however there could be other candidates which could prolong the process. In Iulia’s case there were so another interview was conducted.
