"In the workplace, I naturally lean towards my preference of straightforward rules and expectations. From there, once I am comfortable in my knowledge base, I can start to think outside of the box. So - to answer your question - I would say I bring a healthy balance of both."
"I am most comfortable when my creativity is challenged. I like to think of new ways of working, and create alternate solutions to a variety of scenarios. With that said, I am more than capable of following a predetermined set of rules."
Most organizations prefer to hire candidates who can apply creative thinking when needed, but can also follow protocol and guidelines. Assure the interviewer that you are an individual who can achieve both.
"In 2009 I completed my Certificate in General Insurance through the Insurance Institute of America (IIA). I am currently completing my Associate in Insurance Services (AIS) certificate. Are there any other certificates or licenses required to work in this role?"
"I am newer to this industry and just recently completed the Insurance Claims Training Course through FEMA. Are there any courses that you suggest I take immediately? I want to be well prepared for career growth at ACE Limited."
Some positions within ACE Limited will require you to hold special certification or licensing. These requirements may be different depending on the State that you are working in as well. Talk to the interviewer about any additional certifications you may hold and be sure to ask about their expectations and needs.
