  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to The Walt Disney Company
  • My advice would be to be friendly and inquisitive in your interview. The interviewer isn't expecting you to know everything, but showing your willingness to learn and ask questions goes a long way. Likewise when you start the role, make notes and ask questions, it's the best way to learn and people will be willing to help you if you show you're enthusiastic and want to make the most of the opportunity.
