1.

When have you taught someone important skills or knowledge, in the workplace?

Interviewers want to hear that you have experience teaching or mentoring other employees one-on-one.

You may have taught a new hire all of your department's standard processes. Perhaps you taught a long standing employee how to use Excel. You may have mentored an employee who was struggling to hit their monthly goals. All of these scenarios are great examples to draw on. Better yet, if you have personally seen someone struggling with workplace skills or knowledge, approached them, and offered to mentor them, it is a shining example of leadership!

Whatever your scenario may be, tell the interviewer what you helped the person with, while highlighting the positive outcome of their skills improvement.

Ryan's Answer #1

"Last week our company introduced a new module in our SAP system. I could see that our contracted HR Assistant was having some troubles with the new module. I was familiar with it already so I offered to help him learn the module. We spent his lunch hour for the next 3 days working on it. He perfected the module and our company was so impressed with his dedication to learning that they are now trying to find room to hire him on a full time, permanent basis."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Absolutely! In each of my two previous roles, I have been tasked with leading a small team. I have worked on everything from appointment setting and overcoming objections to price negotiations with those respective teams. What's more, I always look for an opportunity to connect with the new folks to the team to ensure them that I can be a resource to them."

2.

What sources do you look to when solving complicated problems?

The interviewer wants to know that you are able to think outside the box, or even ask for help, when you are stuck on a complicated problem.

Maybe you look to a mentor or boss for advice. Perhaps you have handbooks, manuals and systems you turn to for help. Offer some relevant examples based on your industry. If you work in the medical field, you may turn to textbooks, online research, colleagues or even patient's history to find the right solution. If you work in customer service, you may ask the customer what they need in order to find the best way to solve the problem.

Show the interviewer that you are knowledgeable and equipped to handle these types of scenarios.

Ryan's Answer #1

"When I am faced with a complicated problem, I will look to the resources that my current company has provided me. The answer is almost always in there. If it's more of a moral dilemma vs. a knowledge based dilemma, I will ask my supervisor for his thoughts and opinion since I value him as a mentor and expert in our industry."

Ryan's Answer #2

"In order to solve a complex issue, I will reach out to a manager or mentor from a previous role to ask them how they've handled such issues in the past. I am always ready to dive back into our handbook, but these types of scenarios are often not covered there, which is why I really value a human, experiential approach. I know that there are so many folks in the industry who have so much to teach me and have probably already "been-there-done-that", so I love to utilize them as a resource."

3.

What would you do if a client asked you about a product or service and you were unsure of the answer?

The interviewer wants know if you are an independent thinker. Explain that you would take the time to try and figure out the answer, but you are not afraid to ask questions if you need to.

Ryan's Answer #1

"If I had a client ask me about something that I didn't know enough about, I would absolutely find the answer for them before giving a false answer. I am okay with admitting when I don't know something and i love to learn new things. Of course, I would find the answer quickly by asking the appropriate person or finding it within the company's internal resources."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Whenever I do not have an answer, I never say 'I don't know'. I always reply with a 'I will find out'. If I do not know the answer to something then I take it as an opportunity to research and learn something exciting and new."

4.

What type of work environment allows you to be the most productive?

Are you able to be productive in any environment? Are there particular types of environments that you find distracting? Discuss your preferences with the interviewer. Be sure to research the type of environment that is offered in this position prior to the interview.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I understand that your work environment is very collaborative. I come from a similar environment and found that I could be very productive when there was the 'buzz' of a team around me. I can also be productive in quieter environments although that isn't my preference."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I work well in a high pressure, demanding environment that requires you to work smart and make your mark. I am competitive in nature and love to be personally challenged."

5.

At MHP Communications we value continued education. If you could choose any marketing related course to attend, what would you choose?

Many employers look to hire employees who have a penchant for knowledge and growth. Express your interest in continued education by passionately discussing a topic that you would love to learn more about. Be sure to keep your answer industry and job related.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I love the idea of expanding my knowledge within internet marketing. If I could choose any topic for continued education, I would choose to learn more about search engine optimization and search engine marketing. You can dive really deep into each of those topics which is an exciting challenge for me."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I am really pleased to hear that you appreciate continued education. Thank you for this consideration! If I had the opportunity to expand my knowledge in any area of marketing, I would choose Consumer Behavior Insights. There is so much to learn when it comes to consumer spending and buying patterns- it's fascinating."

6.

How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?

We all like to be recognized in some way for our accomplishments in the workplace. Share with the interviewer how you would like to be recognized for your hard work. Through gifts? Financial perks? Public recognition? Kind words? Title promotions?

Ryan's Answer #1

"I am very much an over-achiever and find that the best way for me to be recognized for a job well done is to be given words of kindness and recognition. I am easily encouraged and the best reward for me is to know that my hard work is being noticed."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I am definitely driven by some friendly competition! I like internally driven contests where I have the ability to win small financial incentives."

7.

Do people see you as a trustworthy and honest individual?

It is easy to say that you are trustworthy and honest but it's best if you can back it up with a review or words from a previous supervisor.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I am told quite often that I am an honest and trustworthy individual and you will be able to hear that directly from my supervisor when you call for a reference. I hold honesty and trustworthiness as very important virtues."

Ryan's Answer #2

"My friends and family rely on me heavily because I am trustworthy and honest. They can count on me to be straightforward with them and depend on me to be there when it matters least or most."

8.

What do you think our company's biggest challenge is?

What is this particular company's biggest challenge, and how do you think that you can assist?

Ryan's Answer #1

"After speaking with you further about the company, and this role, I believe that the biggest challenge this company has faced is in hiring the right talent. I have a strong background in recruitment as well as management and do feel that I can assist with this hurdle. Having the right team players is imperative to a company's success and, if we can tackle that, I see great things happening."

Ryan's Answer #2

"That is a tough question because I have not spend time working within your organization. Knowing the industry, my best guess would be that the biggest challenge is the same challenge any marketing company faces, and that is keeping up with the fast paced changes in marketing, advertising, and social media."

9.

What questions do you have for me?

It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the questions you are asking are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of questions you could have found the answers to from simply watching a video on their company site!

Here are some sample questions:

- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the biggest change in this industry over the past 3 years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?

Ryan's Answer

"Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What is top of mind when it comes to filling this role? In addition, what types of career growth opportunities would follow this position? And lastly, do you have internal candidates who are also interviewing for this position?"

10.

Tell me about one of the most rewarding experiences you had working on a team. What made it rewarding?

The interviewer wants to hear that you feel accomplished through teamwork. Talk about a time when you felt fulfilled through a team setting or project collaboration.

An example may be a time when you worked on a team project in University, a recent work collaboration, or possibly an extracurricular experience such as coaching a little league team.

Discuss the positive results of the teamwork and how you attained a positive outcome as a group.

Ryan's Answer #1

"The most rewarding team work experience that I have had was in my last year of university. We were assigned a project in teams of 4 which accounted for quite a large part of our grade. I believe everyone pulled more than their own weight because so much was at stake. Team work is very rewarding when everyone has sometime to win, or lose."

Ryan's Answer #2

"One of my most rewarding team work experiences was while I was attending University. I learned so much by working with my classmates. I gained new problem solving skills and learned a lot from their research preferences."

11.

Do you have difficulty working in a team environment?

Team collaboration is a key part of most jobs so it's important that you give an overall positive reply to this question. If you have difficulty working in a team environment, that is okay; however, you need to show the interviewer that you are capable of offering flexibility between a group setting and working autonomously. In the end, the interviewer wants to be assured that you are capable of working positively, in a team environment.

If you love working in a team environment: "Personally, I thrive in a team environment. I see team projects as an opportunity to learn new skills!"

Ryan's Answer #1

"Personally, I thrive in a team environment. I see team projects as an opportunity to learn new skills!"

Ryan's Answer #2

"If you have difficulty working in a team environment: "Depending on the scope of the project, I sometimes prefer to work autonomously; however, I am more than capable of being a positive and contributing member of a team based project."

12.

If you had $50,000 to build your own business, what would you do?

If money was no object, what kind of business would you start? The interviewer will be able to learn something new and unique about you through this question. Avoid answers that would include building a business that competes with the hiring company.

Ryan's Answer #1

"If I had $50,000 to build my own business I would open up a community center in my neighborhood that offered inexpensive childcare, cooking classes, and other life skills programs. I am passionate about volunteering and see a strong need in those particular areas."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I would choose to invest the $50,000 into an existing business in an industry that my spouse has an interest in. I love what I do for a career but she has always wanted to be an entrepreneur."

13.

What gives you satisfaction in this particular career?

Job satisfaction is a major factor in whether people stay or leave their employers. Talk to the interviewer about what satisfies you about your career and why you continue to stay on this particular path.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I am very satisfied in this career path and I believe it is because I am able to help people on a daily basis. It is important for me to feel as though I am contributing to my community and this career certainly generates those feelings."

Ryan's Answer #2

"My satisfaction always comes from a job well done. I am self-led and disciplined so my satisfaction truly comes from within."

14.

How do you think your early career will help you succeed in this position?

Did you start working at a young age? Perhaps you have held some tough jobs earlier in your career? Many hiring managers agree that the best employees are ones with 'grit' and whom have held a 'dirty job' or two in their lives. Talk to the interviewer about your early work experience.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have been working since I was just 14 years old. My first job was as a shop hand for my father who was a mechanic. I had to sweep, clean, greet customers and order parts. It was a great way for me to get my hands dirty and I was taught excellent customer service skills from an early age. Everything that I learned during that time has helped me to stay grounded and humble in my career."

Ryan's Answer #2

"My early career taught me great work ethic and positively shaped my communication skills. I look forward to applying these skills to this role with your company."

15.

How do you deal with uncomfortable situations?

Often, our work environment holds the possibility for awkward or tense situations. It can be difficult to know how to respond when you have a coworker who is moody, or when your coworker lacks social skills and constantly asks inappropriate questions. The interviewer wants to know that you can keep your cool in situations like these.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have had my share of awkward situations, and having raised 2 kids, I am no stranger to them! In the workplace, if an uncomfortable situation arises I tend to face the issue head on, but in a tactful way. Sweeping things under the rug rarely helps. I have no problem being open with my team or colleagues if I am not feeling comfortable in a particular situation."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I try to avoid conflict, but I have a high tolerance for discomfort. I've learned to try to let the people in question sort it out, but have no problem rolling up my sleeves and diving in to help mediate the problem."
