How to Answer
Facebook is all about teamwork and collaboration. On the company's career website, they describe part of Facebook's mission. 'We empower people here to connect with each other, build community, and do work that is meaningful for them.'
The interviewers want to hear that you feel accomplished through teamwork. Take a minute to think about a team-based project that went well, made a significant impact on your employer, or taught you a valuable new skill. If you are newer to your career, you can talk about when you worked on a team project in university or even an extracurricular or volunteer experience where you were required to successfully collaborate with others.
"My software development team recently worked on a major release for a well-known brand. It was by far the biggest project in my portfolio. I was the Junior Engineer on the project and delivered amazing work, not just because I always strive to do my best and because the more senior team members believed in my work. Their encouragement and faith in my work were all I needed to elevate my delivery even further."
"The position I am currently in has been my first experience with a large marketing team. We have knocked some seriously complex projects out of the park, becoming the pacesetters for many launches. My favorite so far has been Project ABC, where we saw higher customer conversions than ever before. It's been exciting to see everyone flourish. I love to see everyone succeed. It's encouraging and exhilarating."

"I'd like to mention the flights' project, where the collaboration across the project team, learning and development team, and product team was the key to our well-praised success. Despite the extremely ambiguous context we were in, we constantly communicated with one another, sharing information in a transparent manner and drawing out ideas from one another constantly and applied to our output. Functioning as one big team in this way was the best possible way to work."Stephanie's Answer

"During the peak of the COVID & economic crisis last year, we lost a lot of clients. We urgently needed to win back a big client for the survival of our office.
