Do you use joined up hand writing?

Do you know your times tables?

Can you tie your own shoe laces?

I'ts probably wise to recite the lines so you can prove you can remember them - "Can I take your order please" and "The ketchup is over there"

haha your a funny one! nah but i am expecting to be the goffer to start with if i get the job! :thumbsup:

There's no problem being the go for!

It's a great starting place of a job, which can take you far

It's really really exciting - I bet you are jumping up and down.

I started off as the goafer - and ended up being head hunted for many years after - getting promotion after promotion.

Like I say - best of luck - it's great news

Whats your favourite Viral marketing campaign?
What adverts do you remember?

I've been working in marketing for 9 years now......... I'd say the first year - 18 months (although I still make the ocassional coffee for people now if I'm quiet :-D)

good luck mate, ingore the trolls

edit: seems the mods have taken car of it now

I think JFK said he was in marketing, mabye he can help.

Whatever the business is, try to find some background info on it, when it was established etc etc, shows you done some research

I have been in marketing for a year now and i made my first coffee last week (for some visitors)
If its a graduate position then most likely you will be asked exactly what you studied at uni, they might ask you what your disertation was about etc, this helps them get a feel for what exactly you know and what interests you the most. Also any other experience, luckily for me i started my own online business at uni so already had a lot of practical experience in some areas of online marketing.

cheers man appreciated!
i will give him a shout see if he has any info!
i know a ton about the company already
their arnt a big company established 2006 so relativly young, i thought somewhere like that would be better as it may be easier for me to get ahead in a smaller company than apply for one of the major boys and be stuck in the background for years!:thumbsup:

my degree is in sociology but i felt a step into marketing maybe a good way to take it as consumer marketing research is a form of applied sociology.

[COLOR="Red"]I work in marketing and if there's anything you want to know just ask me.

In the interview itself just make sure you come across as ultra confident but not cocky or arrogant. As BG said make sure you know a lot about the company although it sounds like you've already done your research.

Common interview questions are:

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
What makes you better than the other candidates?
They make also ask you what are your salary requirements so make sure you do your research into how much other companies pay employees of your job title.[/COLOR]
