Professional internship interview

Hello,
I have my phone interview for marketing-related professional internships on Sunday. Has anyone gone through this before, and is able to tell me a little bit about what this is like?

Thanks,
Jeff

I sent my resume in for 3 different positions:
Copyright-Travel Industry Marketing Internship
Special Programs Marketing Internship
Disney Cruise Line Internal Communications Intern

Maybe one of them will work out!

Congratulations!

If you haven't already interviewed this first interview will probably be just a "are you disney material?" interview. I applied for the Disney Design Group internship and made it past the first interview, now I'm waiting to find out if I get to interview again.

Mine was basic questions. Know why you want to work for disney, and what you strengths are. Be prepared to talk about you!

Smile on the phone. Be enthusiastic, they want you to want to work for them.

And Good Luck!

I had that first interview on Sunday... I guess I'll get a phone call if any of the three internships is interested in me - the person I spoke to said that my information was being passed on, so hopefully that's a good sign. I also need to fill out an application and mail it in.

Good luck to you also!

Jeff

Are any of you applying for Communication Planning internships? I think the person who applied for the DDG internship is considered Communication Planning.

I am currently doing an internship in Communication Planning and I just found out that I'm being extended through January.

Let me know how your guys' interviews are going!

Question Any 2nd calls?

How long did it take before you guys heard back for a 2nd interview??? I had my first one Feb 28, and mailed my packet/application to them on March 1. I'm going to lose my mind if I don't hear back shortly!!! I hate uncertainty, and I need to start looking for a backup summer job at home. I know I can't be the only one losing their mind!!!

Congratulations on getting an interview! It's definitely a long process of interviews so try not to get too anxious! My suggestion for the second interview is to be ready for any types of questions and just be yourself!! Good Luck! I love my internship; Travel Industry Sales!!

I have my second interview on Thursday. Apparently there are three people at Disney who will be participating in the call.

How many interviews could there be?

Generally, you will only have one interview per department, if that's what you mean!

If there are three people involved in the call, it could be the supervisors and a few existing co-workers. I know I had a few of my co workers on the phone when I did my interview!

You said there was quite a process of interviews, I thought you meant there were more than two. Phew! Any idea how many people they could be considering?

Well, I guess what I meant was that if you are called from other departments and that thw whole process is long! I applied in May, got my first interview in September and then didn't hear anything until November! There is the general screening then I had two or three others from different departments, but only one per!! lol, don't worry!! You will definitely be fine, just be prepared with questions you think that department will ask and just be yourself and try to click with the interviewer! I think it's as much about how you "click" as it is your resume, etc.!!! It all depends on the department with how many others they are considering...I really don't know!

I had the strangest interview experience. Disney Design group called me the day after I sent in my portfolio and I had what is typically referrered to as a second interview my first time around. I had two artists talking to me about my work and neither one asked me anything that would be referred to as a typical interview question. During the conversation I asked if I would be getting the more standard "first interview" and they said that DDG didn't do things the typical way so I guess that was it. Anybody else have this happen?
