Interview @ Endemol – (Planning & Engagement)

The preparation I had staged myself for the Endemol interview was, the earlier lecture advices from Roddy Gibson with information on how to present myself and advice on how I should tackle interview scenarios. An example quoted from Roddy Gibson was;

Personally, with the freedom to wear whatever you want, takes an individual away from the restrictions held and allowing the leisure to be your very own personal self. Without further due, the interview process I would presume had gone well, thus being selected for a second invited interview.

I am truly thankful for this opportunity with credit to Roddy Gibson on his lectures and arrangements of guest speakers. Learning from other people has really taught me what pitfalls and mistakes I could look out for when invited or applying for future jobs.
