Job Interview Tips for Five Entertainment Management Applicants
Check out the jobs section on our website (https://www.5entertain.com/jobs), select your desired position, and apply.
Once you've sent in your application, and you meet the criteria, you might get invited to have a job interview. Job interviews can be nerve-wracking, as you don't know what to expect or how to act, no matter how many of them you’ve had. However, they are necessary for you and the employer to determine if you're a perfect fit.
Here are a few interview tips to help the process go smoothly:
Have Questions Ready
During the job interview, the interviewer will always inform you of the job you've applied for. Before your interview, compile a list of questions on anything you'd like more information on. These can include your working hours, salary, where your destinations are going to be, and your accommodations. You must fully understand the duties of the position you're applying for. It also wouldn't hurt to bring a notebook and pen to make any necessary and additional notes.
Whether you're being interviewed in person or online, how you dress sets a first impression. For a job interview, you must be neat. You can do this by keeping your hair out of your face and, if you wear any, keep your make-up simple and natural. For Five Entertainment Management auditions, you must wear black. Wearing dark and neutral colors for a job interview is a good idea, too, as they keep you looking neat and professional. If you want to showcase your personality, you can do this through accessories.
Have a Copy of Your CV and Portfolio with You
During a job interview, the interviewer will question your past education and experiences. Keeping a copy of your CV with you will help remind you of your duties for those jobs. Be mindful and professional when talking about previous jobs, even if you left on bad terms. Bad-mouthing previous employers is a red flag for the interviewer, and you likely won't be chosen for the job.

Be a Professional Version of Yourself
A sense of humour is always welcome in a job interview, but keep it professional and don't overdo it. Don't be too snarky or overly confident, either. Stay poised and present to answer the questions carefully. Let the professional side of your personality shine in the job interviews by showing them that you are someone they can trust.
Many people tend to get nervous during interviews. If this is you, then try these methods to help calm you down.
Practice soothing breathwork techniques before the interview to regulate your nervous system.
Meditate before the interview to help clear your mind.
Journal before the interview to express any negative thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing.
Keep Calm and Enjoy the Interview Process
Be prepared with any additional information the interviewer may need after the interview, including your showreel and portfolio. Stay calm and try not to be too nervous, as this may cause you to run your mouth. Stay well-informed and follow up with the interviewer after the interview.
