Adaptability Questions

Q:

Tell us about a situation in which you had to adjust to changes over which you had no control. How did you handle it?

Answer

Strategy Statement: 


The interviewer is interested in knowing how you are able to perform in a workplace where you are not the one who is ‘making the calls’. The typical workplace environment involves a tiered structure where there are those who make the decisions and those who perform the work. An entry level position most often assumes the role of the latter. 


Sample Response: 


I am a performer of tasks. As a new employee, I understand that many of my duties will be directed by those above me. These will undoubtedly involve changes, and as long as I understand how the changes are related to the betterment of the company/business/corporation, I am fully ‘on board’. I once worked for a corporation where one of my duties was to prepare the annual report. As a result of input from the overseeing board and members, the format for that report was changed significantly. Although this meant that I had to relearn the report-writing process, with my understanding that this change would mean that the report was more accessible and easy to read, I had no problem with the demands of that change.

Q:

Tell me about a time you had to handle multiple responsibilities. How did you organize the work you needed to do?

Answer

Sample Response :


While attending college, I also worked at a law firm. I was successful because I practiced good time-management skills, and I made a to-do list every day. As I completed each task, I checked it off the list. It is funny how something so simple can keep you so organized. As a result of my to-do lists, I was able to visualize my daily progress.

Q:

What is your ideal working environment ?

Answer

The interviewer is attempting to assess how closely your ideal fits with the reality of their organisation. A positive work environment makes employees feel good about coming to work, and this provides the motivation to sustain them throughout the day. When you can find the ideal working environment that best suits your work ethics and personality, you will become more productive and lead a fulfilling life.


- Before answering, take into account how their company is structured in terms of work days, formality, small start-up verses large corporation, etc.

- Highlight your desire to work in a team-oriented workplace.
- Talk about your work-style and that it blends in well with the company’s vision.

Q:

You face a challenging situation involving three people; your manager, a peer and a client. All are in an emergency and only person who can provide solution is you. How will you manage to satisfy them all?

Answer

Firstly I will understand the exact problem they are going through and depending on the intensity of the problem I will suggest them. But at any given time, a client’s problem is of utmost importance and having a happy client would be important for the organization. Even my manager and an associate will understand it.
