Search Marketing Interview Preparation Toolkit

by Conor Ward

Posted on Nov 27, 2018

This toolkit has been designed as a practical resource for candidates who are preparing to interview for a position in search marketing.

It is geared towards those applying for positions requiring 0–3 years’ experience in the search marketing specialty. Many people who are applying for entry-level search marketing positions may already have substantial experience in digital marketing, within other areas of the industry. Therefore, we recommend that this interview toolkit be used in conjunction with our previous Digital Marketing Interview Preparation Toolkit.

That previous toolkit provides guidance on digital marketing interviews generally, so it should still be used to prepare general opening interview questions as well as personality and closing questions. It also provides additional tips on how to approach a digital marketing interview. This new toolkit builds upon that, providing specific guidance for competency-based search marketing interview questions.

This document includes a list of common search marketing interview questions, guidance notes on how to approach each question, sample responses, and space for you to write your own notes and prepared responses. You can do this by typing your notes into the document, or alternatively just print it off and write up your notes in the appropriate spaces. 

This provides the perfect template to get you well prepared for an upcoming interview. 

Just download the Microsoft Word document below to get started.
