    3.

    In the healthcare industry, problems arise frequently. When a major problem arises, what is your first reaction?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer wants to know if your reactions to problems reflect maturity and professionalism. How you react will significantly determine how you fit with their existing team.

      Perhaps your computer crashes, and you realize you may have just lost all of your hard work, or maybe a deadline is rapidly approaching and you have limited time. Demonstrate to the interviewer that you take a methodical approach to problem-solving rather than reacting impulsively when a problem occurs.

      Written by Rachelle Enns

      1st Answer Example

      "I have taught myself to be much calmer with my first reactions when problems arise. Now, I step back and review my options for solving the problem rather than allow myself to become frustrated."
