    Speaker Operations Executive Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ascential.

    Interview

    The position was for a role at Cannes Lions. I had a phone call with a HR recruiter at Ascential who asked me some questions, it went well. This was on a Thursday. Then on Monday I receive an invite to interview face to face with the manager. Short notice to prepare - but I thought OK fair enough.
    I thought the interview was fine - in retrospect I could have framed my answers more in-line with the actual questions the manager asked. However I also realised that the job the manager described was quite different and had many more responsibilities than what the job description entailed which seemed a little misleading. The manager insisted at the end of the interview that I would find out by the next week if I was going to have a second interview for the position.
    Instead I found out that they re-posted the position on LinkedIn one day after my interview and I never heard from them again. I understand that I was unsuccessful but I lose respect for any business that treats people like this. The whole event has been postponed to October now due to the pandemic so I guess nobody wins.
