How do I prep for an interview?
When preparing for an interview, Nicole Marks, Manager of Design, highly suggests doing your research. When researching, look thoroughly into all aspects of the company. This includes when the company was established, how many employees or locations there are, what their company values are, and of course have a basic knowledge of their brand, product, or service which will help you feel more confident going into your interview and allow you to confidently answer questions they may have for you.

What do I bring to an interview with 24 Seven?
Senior Consultant, Jessica Adaki, gave us the full breakdown of what you should bring to your first interview with us. First and foremost, be sure to arrive early to your appointment with 24 Seven (and any interview!) For the basics of what to bring, make sure you have your passport, a valid visa, national ID number, and bank information. If you need to bring any additional forms of identification or paperwork, your recruiter will specify that with you prior to your meeting, but if you have any questions before, feel free to ask! For creative candidates be sure to bring your portfolio.

How should I approach training as a freelance candidate?
Liam Allwood, Training and Account Manager, knows the importance of training for any job, but with his focus on freelance candidates, he is a professional at making any candidate feel confident. The importance of training freelance staff is so that they can feel like the fulltime staff and have that same knowledge and understanding of the product and brand. From product knowledge to every day tasks and background information, feeling properly trained is a must for all candidates, especially freelance.
