More often than not, the company or studio will email to ask you in for an interview, and will arrange a time and a date that suits you both. After receiving this email, make sure you respond in good time. You’ll want to thank them for the opportunity and say how much you look forward to meeting them.
If they haven’t stated, ask what you need to be prepared for. Some companies send the questions they’ll ask in advance, while others might send a task to do. If this is the case, it’s a good idea to ask how long they expect you to spend on it, what format to show it in and how to present it.
🚨 Be wary of the language used in emails like this, as you don’t want to be thrown off thinking that the interview was an informal ‘chat’, when in fact it was the opposite. Basically, always assume that ‘chat’ simply means ‘interview’ and be prepared, just in case. You don’t want to be taken by surprise.
