What is a situational interview question?
This type of question allows the interviewer to understand your thinking, decision making, and problem solving processes. It can also help the interviewer see how fast you think on your feet.
- How do you go about building a relationship with a new client?
- What type of communication would you choose to use to address a complaint from a peer or co-worker? Your manager? A more senior manager?
- If you had tight deadlines you were concerned about meeting, what would you do?
- When you have a lot of tasks on your plate at one time, how do you go about deciding what tasks to do and when to do them?
