How to Answer
The interviewer wants to understand if you are a team player. These situations seem to happen often in the workplace since everyone's work style is a bit unique. Maybe you are organized, and you had to work with someone who is not organized. Perhaps you are a 'big picture' thinker, and you had to work with someone who micromanaged the details. Maybe you are a technology whiz, and you had to work with someone who likes to do things with paper and pen.
Start by discussing the project you were working on and the ways your work styles differed from each other. Explain how you came to a mutual consensus on how to conquer the project. Show the interviewer that you are capable of giving merit to different working styles, even if they do not match your own.
"My fellow administrator and I approach deadlines differently, and that is okay. I prefer mapping out the situation and putting myself on a timeline whereas she prefers to jump right into the task. We have found a good balance between our two working styles after discussing our differences. On our last project, we agreed to split the tasks up and come together at the end of each day to put the pieces together. We have also agreed to keep the lines of communication open throughout the day. As different as we are from each other, we both agree that so long as we get to the end goal together, it doesn't always matter how we got there."
Second Answer Example
"When I began my most recent role, I replaced a manager who very much believed in a dictatorship management style. It was a huge challenge to undo the damage created, while safely implementing my more relaxed management style. My team was so used to a stringent workplace that they resisted my methods significantly. Once trust developed, we were able to create a comfortable workplace culture."
The interviewer is putting you on the spot just slightly. They want to hear the steps that you took to prepare for your interview today. The wrong answer is that you are winging it! Even if you did not have a lot of time to prep for the meeting, or it was a last-minute booking, chances are you still took the time to search the company online or read through the job description. You can be brief and quickly touch on the ways that you prepared for the meeting.
"I am well versed in what your company offers and have spoken with a couple of my friends who have worked for your organization in the past. Also, I updated my resume for you since the one you found online was slightly outdated."
Second Answer Example
"Your organization is one that I have had my eye on for some time now. I am well aware of your company history and took some time this week to get to know your new product line. I feel well prepared for our meeting today."

How to Answer
Technical terms and methods can be confusing to anyone outside of the industry. Some say that if you cannot quickly explain what you do in layman's terms, then you do not understand it well enough. You should be able to explain everything that you do, on a Grade 8 level. The interviewer is testing to see if you can do this. Keep your reply brief and try to keep your words under three syllables!
"If I were to explain cloud computing to someone outside of the industry, I would say that cloud computing is a way to deliver computing services over the internet, using the cloud. For instance, we use cloud computing when we store photos online, and even when we use different apps on our phone."
Second Answer Example
"My mom recently asked me what cloud computing was and so I told her that she uses cloud technology everytime she asks the internet to perform something on demand such as saving pictures online, access files online, or even playing certain games on her phone."

This question is a personal based question, focused on who you most admire in the tech industry. With influencers changing all the time, and companies coming out with amazing advancements every day, the interviewer would like to know better which people are stand-out innovators to you. Be sure to back your answer with why this particular person is of interest to you.
"If I could meet anyone in tech, I would choose Kara Swisher. There are far fewer female influencers in the tech industry, compared to men. I admire that she is brilliant, an entrepreneur, and an important influencer, and also that she has been a writer for The Wall Street Journal. The path she is paving for women in this industry is incredible."
Second Answer Example
"To choose just one person in tech, who I admire the most, is pretty difficult. There are so many people that I admire. If I had to choose just one, I would pick Tim O'Reilly. These days, it's incredibly difficult to gain an audience in the tech space, let alone coin new terms and important thoughts. He popularized the term 'open source' and also 'web 2.0.' The fact that he has such a powerful voice in this fast-moving industry is inspiring to me."
There may be no right or wrong answer here, but the interviewer is interested in knowing which data structure is your favorite. Chances are, the structure that you choose is the one that you are best versed in, giving the interviewer an idea of your experience and skill level.
"I would say that search trees are my favorite data structure, for a few different reasons. First, it is easy to determine structure relationships within the data. Second, they provide an efficient way of inserting data as well as searching."
Second Answer Example
"I believe that data needs to be flexible which is why I prefer search trees. I am comfortable using many data structures and algorithms; however."
6. Workday refuses to cave to corporate politics, and heirarchical attitudes. In your opinion, how can a company best achieve this kind of culture? On Workday's website, they claim to not bend to typical 'ivory-tower' attitudes, in an attempt to focus only on the factors that have made them successful up to this point. Share with the interviewer some ideas on ways that a company can maintain these goals of a happy and healthy corporate structure. Here is an answer example: "I appreciate Workday's efforts when it comes to their workplace culture. You are doing something very right, considering all of your awards including Best Workplaces for Technology, Best Workplaces for Millennials, andFortune 100 Best Companies to Work. I believe that a key to maintaining this environment is to offer flexibility to staff who need to work from home on days their kids are off of school or offering flex hours when it comes to start and end times during the week. It's the small things that make the biggest difference, in my opinion." Here is an answer example: "From my research, I see that Workday truly believes employees are the heart of the business, which is the most important first step of achieving an excellent workplace culture. Other ways to achieve this includes performance incentive programs and offering promotions based on results rather than tenure only."7. What is the riskiest decision you have ever made in the workplace? Being a top company in tech sometimes requires calculated risks. Workday didn't get to the top from doing what everyone expected of them. In fact, they pride themselves on being disruptors in the cloud services industry.
The interviewer wants to know how you handle making risky decisions. As a successful professional, you know to calculate risk in your industry. Tell the interviewer about a work-related risk you have taken and what the outcome was. Here is an answer example: "The riskiest career choice I have made was asking for a reduction in hours, from full time to part time employment, to pursue my degree in computer science. My boss could have let me go, but he didn't. He openly supported my pursuit of higher education." Here is an answer example: "One of the riskiest decisions I made was to leave corporate America and join a startup with an innovative idea. The company was seeking to provide a product/service that would pioneer a new industry. We worked harder and smarter to launch and create a new space in the nutraceutical marketplace. We failed a lot along the way, but we learned to fail fast, and it made us all better professionals."8. What advice would you give to a colleague who was stressed out? Being able to handle stress is one skill but being able to talk your colleagues off the ledge, during their peak times of stress, is an entirely different skill. Discuss with the interviewer what you would say or do to help a coworker cope with stress. Here is an answer example: "If I had a colleague who was stressed out I would recommend that they look at the factors that regularly stress them out, and create some boundaries surrounding those stressors. Perhaps a colleague keeps interrupting them, resulting in missed deadlines. These distractions need boundaries so I would start there." Here is an answer example: "To help a colleague deal with stress, I would recommend that they take the time needed to recharge. It is surprising how many people do not turn their phone off ever, in an entire week, or take the vacation time to which they are entitled. Sometimes a change of pace can fix so many feelings of stress and overwhelm."9. What questions do you have for me? Workday wants to know that you are well prepared! It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the queries you have are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of items you could have found the answers for from merely 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 most significant change in this industry over the past three years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me? Here is an answer example: "Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What is top of mind when it comes to filling this role? Also, what types of career growth opportunities would follow this position? And lastly, do you have internal candidates who are also interviewing for this position?" Here is an answer example: "I would like to ask if there is anything in my background on which you need clarification? Also, after discussing everything today, is there any particular reason why I would not be the best fit for this iOS developer role with Workday?"10. Workday believes in a transparent workplace. How do you respond to unsolicited feedback? The interviewer would like to see that you can respond professionally to unsolicited feedback and pivot your approach when needed. It is one thing to take the input but a whole other to show that you can implement the suggestion if required.
Sometimes unsolicited feedback will not be helpful. In these instances, they may come from a catty, miserable, or jealous co-worker. What do you do then? Assure the interviewer that you are capable of letting this type of situation slide without it affecting your entire day. Here is an answer example: "When I receive unsolicited feedback I will take a step back an assess whether I believe the person had my best interest in mind. If the answer is yes, they intend to help me; I will approach them and ask for them to elaborate and perhaps suggest a way for me to implement change. If the answer is no, they are only trying to hinder my performance; I go about my day." Here is an answer example: "I have very thick skin, so if I do receive unsolicited feedback, I can take it with a grain of salt. Customers will complain about our set pricing, the color of our packaging - really, anything you could think of. Now, if on a whim, my boss recommends that I have a better organizational system, I will take that to heart and take a good hard look at my organizational methodology. I am always open to change and workplace improvements."11. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your technical abilities? The interviewer would like to know how you rate your technical skills. Likely, they will mention specific tech skills in the job posting or job description. First, on a scale of 1-10, discuss how skilled are you in their tech requirements. Try to avoid giving yourself a 10, since nobody is perfect, and you do not want to come across as overly confident or someone who has no room for feedback and improvement. Alternately, avoid giving yourself too little credit. You do not want to paint the picture that you are a tech dud! Try to remain in the 7.5-9.5 range while staying honest and accurate. Be sure to list which programs, apps, or systems in which you shine! Here is an answer example: "I rate my technical skills as a 9/10 as I will, on occasion, have times when I am not as savvy as I would like to be. My supervisor and co-workers will attest to my ability to pick up new tech very easily. I would say I'm strongest in Java and Python." Here is an answer example: "In my current role, technology, social media, and apps are at the heart of what drives our projects. We have to communicate messages through technology, stay in touch with our clients and team, and always be in-the-know when it comes to the latest and greatest apps. I am exceptional when it comes to staying up to date with the latest marketing tech and will rate myself as a 9/10 and always improving."12. Do you feel performance should be rewarded over experience? Workday does not always require a degree for their roles as they value on the job experience, displays of expertise, and even self-taught knowledge. The interviewer would like to know your thoughts on being paid based on your work performance, versus being compensated solely on your years of experience.
As millennial employees continue to dominate the work scene, more and more employees are requesting compensation based on delivered results. Do you feel that you should be paid based on tenure, or results? Discuss this with the interviewer and back your answer with an example, if possible. Here is an answer example: "I feel that employees should be paid, and rewarded, based on their performance. A new employee will find motivation in being rewarded for performance, and it encourages a healthy competition with tenured employees." Here is an answer example: "As a manager of people myself, I feel that both performance and experience should be weighted when deciding compensation, pay increases, and promotions. You want to ensure that you compensate your highest performers appropriately but that their growth is stable and manageable in the long-term."13. How will you guide your team in terms of personal development? The interviewer would like to know that you understand the importance of self-development techniques for your team.
Some suggestions for employee personal development initiatives:
- Roadmapping of a professional growth plan
- Setting learning goals
- Conferences and other off-site learning opportunities
- Related books, audio books, and podcast from industry influencers
- Lunch and learns with exciting topics
- Online learning portal or subscriptions to Udemy and other online universities
- Mentorship partners
- Internal volunteer initiatives or supporting their volunteer interests
- Cross-departmental training opportunities Here is an answer example: "I like to guide my teams in personal development by offering unique learning opportunities. My current company has a learning portal where employees can log-in and learn new skills from software to leadership. It's an excellent resource. Do you have anything like this in your professional development arsenal?" Here is an answer example: "As a manager, I fully understand the importance of investing in my employees. For that reason, I will provide at least two off-site learning opportunities per year for each team member. This experience may be a conference, a trade show, or a seminar related to their role, goals, and of course - the company's mission."14. Tell me about the most challenging problem you have encountered in your professional career. Workday seeks to hire the best employees in the world, who never settle. Their expectations are high, and the rewards are high in return. You will face many challenges while working for Workday. Can you handle the pressure? The interviewer knows that you are not perfect; however, they need to know that you can professionally overcome work-related roadblocks. Maybe you had a significant project that almost went sideways. Perhaps you had a conflict in the workplace that you could have handled more professionally. Explain your approach to resolving the issue and be sure to highlight the steps you took to reach that resolution. Here is an answer example: "The most challenging problem that I encountered in my career was when my former company experienced a major merger. It was a lot to adjust to but, after some time, I was able to get a good pace again." Here is an answer example: "The most significant challenge I have faced as a manager would be the labor dispute and lockout that our company went through in 2016. Many of our permanent employees are union based. We could not come to a new collective agreement, and so I ended up having to utilize a lot of temporary staffing options during that time. It was a lot of re-training, and strain on the company culture overall."15. What is your personal mission statement? One of the core values at Workday is integrity. Their commitment is: 'We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We stick to our commitments, treat everyone equitably, and communicate openly and honestly.'
The interviewer would like to know if you have a personal motto or mantra. Not everyone has a mission statement or personal mantra just off the cuff. In business, especially when entering leadership, this is an important question to ponder. Do you have a quote that inspires you or a saying that you grew up with that resonates with you? Here is an answer example: "My mantra is that 'people who shine from within do not need the spotlight.' I feel that it is incredibly necessary to be a humble leader and I take this mission statement very seriously. I want my team to be in the spotlight rather than being the kind of leader who the credit for good work." Here is an answer example: "I live to serve others. That is my mission. I want my customers to be aware that I care about the success of their business and will do what it takes to ensure they are lucrative. I feel these are qualities that you seek in new employees, after reading Workday's mission statement which included the fact that you will pull out all stops to deliver paramount customer service levels."16. At Workday, we prefer to hire those with an education in computer science or another related field. Walk me through your post-secondary education and training. Since Workday specializes in cloud-based software, you will be required to have experience and knowledge in computer sciences or a related topic if applying for a role within technical operations, product development, or the like.
The interviewer will likely have an idea of your education background from your resume. What they are asking is for you to take a few minutes to bring the experience to life for them. What was your major? Did you receive any special academic recognition? Discuss the strengths gained during your post-secondary training and how you plan to utilize them in your new position with Workday. Here is an answer example: "While reading through your iOS Developer job posting I was pleased to see that you are seeking 3-5 years' experience with preferred education in software engineering. I completed my Bachelor of Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2014. During that time I specialized in Software Analysis. I graduated with a 3.99 GPA, one of the top in my class." Here is an answer example: "I recently completed a few certificates in software development, which are listed fully on my resume. I also have a great deal of on the job training and certifications, all listed on my resume. I noticed that you do not require a specific degree for the iOS Developer position but instead focus more on years of experience, ability to deliver clean code, and skills in HTTP, HTML, and JSON. I am confident in my abilities in all of these areas mentioned."17. Culture fit is important to us at Workday. How would you describe your personality? Workday has earned a plethora of awards for being an excellent employer. They employ over 8,000 employees with a vast range of personalities and values. Discuss the ways that you believe your character will be a compliment to the existing culture at Workday. Here is an answer example: "I would describe my personality as approachable, light-hearted, and positive. I believe that, if asked, my colleagues and supervisor would say the same about me." Here is an answer example: "Try to include a variety of words that the interviewer does not hear all the time. Be unique! Here are some ideas:
- Witty"18. What experience do you have using team-based messaging applications? There are many options for communication software and messaging applications. Give the interviewer a brief overview of the apps you are experienced in and assure them that you can learn their internal system, should it be new to you. Here is an answer example: "I have used a variety of team-based messaging applications. I am best versed in Brosix, Slack, and Freedcamp. No matter which system you use I am sure that I can pick it up very quickly." Here is an answer example: "Although I have not worked with a team based messaging application, I am confident that I would learn very quickly. Which team based messaging apps do you use at Workday? I would love to get a head start and begin learning with some online tutorials if possible."19. With Workday, you will experience changes on a regular basis. When have you had to change a significant component of your project due to the presentation of new information? Being able to swivel the focus of your project is a necessary skill for your success in most careers. Talk to the interviewer about a time when a significant change occurred on a project. How did you handle the implementation of the new information? Here is an answer example: "I had a large project last month that was nearly complete when the client called to say that the dimensions provided were incorrect. Because of this, our team had to re-do the entire proposal. It took us an additional four days of work but, in the end, the client was delighted with our work, and it resulted in new opportunities with them." Here is an answer example: "I would say that being in the software and technology business means changing major components on projects on a very regular basis. I am very well accustomed to changing gears on a moment's notice and can adapt very well. In my current position, my clients often pivot direction or present new information that changes our strategy or focus. It's important to be able to adapt in this industry easily."20. Tell me about your greatest work related accomplishment. Talking about your most significant accomplishment will give the interviewer a firm idea of where you place your values. It will also show the interviewer more about your personality, how you like to be motivated, and how to coach you in the future. It is okay to brag a little bit when answering this question. Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments! Here is an answer example: "The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating University as an honors student while still working full time in a related field. I was top of my class, and working full time. This accomplishment showed me that I could dedicate myself to my career, and reach the goals that I set for myself. It felt great to accomplish so much and be recognized for my dedication." Here is an answer example: "My greatest work-related accomplishment was the management promotion I received at Oracle after just one year. I worked very hard for that promotion and was so happy when my work and dedication was rewarded. It kick-started my career."21. I would like to have a full understanding of your experience and portfolio. What types of industries have your previous projects been involved in? The software and technology industry is all-encompassing, and it is essential for the interviewer to have a full understanding of the sectors and types of projects in which you bring experience. Be sure to highlight any projects or clients mainly related to Workday, as that may pique the interviewer's interest!
Some of the Workday's most significant clients include:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Toyota Here is an answer example: "I have experience in a wide range of industries including healthcare, automotive, and education. Most notably, I have worked with organizations similar to yours including Mastercard, and Volvo." Here is an answer example: "A great alternative to explaining your projects is to bring a substantial portfolio with you. "I wanted to show you a full range of my experience, so I have brought you a digital portfolio of my work. Would you like to take a look?"22. We consider research to be the backbone of what we do at Workday. Do you think it's essential to research before beginning a project or would you instead jump right in? Talk to the interviewer about your work habits and the way in which you prefer to approach a new project. If you have a sense of how Workday prefers to approach their projects, you should discuss that method. For instance, if the interviewer tells you that they prefer extensive research before beginning a project, that is your cue to talk about your excellent research skills. Here is an answer example: "I agree that research is the backbone of a strong project. Without it, important details are missed and much time is wasted. I like to research before starting a project so that I can lay out a plan and understand the potential hurdles as well." Here is an answer example: "Although there are some instances where jumping right it may be required, I always prefer to research before I being a project. Rest assured; I would always follow your preferred methods here at Workday, should I be hired."23. At Workday, we take privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Are you willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement, if hired? Signing a non-disclosure agreement is quite common in the software and technology industry. If hired, you will likely become privy to trade secrets, pending patents, and other innovative projects that must remain confidential. Talk to the interviewer about your willingness to sign an agreement. If you are currently under non-disclosure agreements or a non-compete agreement with your present employer, now is the time to discuss that. Here is an answer example: "I have signed non-disclosure agreements in the past; although I am not currently under one. I see the importance of agreements such as this and am most willing to comply." Here is an answer example: "I am happy to review any privacy and confidentiality agreements that you have."24. What do you think we do better at Workday, than any of our competitors? Before your interview, be sure to research Workday, and any awards or recognition they have recently received. In their industry, and competitive space, where do they stand out?
Some research will show you that Workday has received awards for:
- Best Workplaces for Giving Back
- Best Workplaces in the Bay Area
- Best Workplaces for Technology
- Best Workplaces for Millennials
- Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work
- Best Workplaces in Chicago
Be sure to speak positively about the organization's recent achievements to show that you are interested and engaged in their work. Here is an answer example: "When I was preparing for this interview I noticed that Workday is one of the best places to work for millennials. You are a trailblazer in this particular arena, realizing that the majority of the workforce will be millennials in the next few years. I appreciate that you value more than just years and years of experience when acknowledging your workforce." Here is an answer example: "After reading reviews on your company, I believe that your reputation is the most solid and sincere of all your competitors. Workday is consistently recognized for excellent workplace culture, and for giving back to the community."25. At Workday, we take pride in our ability to stay one step ahead of our competitors. How will you contribute to this trend? It is critical that you research Workday, and their most vigorous competitors, before your interview. What does Workday do best, and who is trying to do it better? Speak openly with the interviewer about your ability to work competitively and how you plan to contribute to their continued success.
Some of the Workday's competitors may include:
- Oracle HCM Cloud Suite
- SAP SuccessFactors
- Dayforce HCM
- Epicor HCM Here is an answer example: "I believe the best way to stay ahead of your competitors is to pay a big amount of attention to the fine details. When you put out a great product, others will try to mimic your work, but they will cut corners because they will feel rushed to get it out on the marketplace first. I will contribute to the success of Workday by committing my most attentive work to you every day." Here is an answer example: "I think that the best way to stay ahead of competitors is to keep your new product launches as simple as possible while remaining innovative. People want simple, easy to use software products, which they can understand. What I've seen from my competitors lately is that they overcomplicate their products. I offer clean and consistent work that your clients will appreciate."26. Tell me about the most interesting project you have worked on this year and the biggest thing you learned from it. Discuss with the interviewer one of your recent projects that particularly piqued your interest. Be sure to discuss how the project stretched you professionally. Mention your biggest takeaway from this particular experience. If you are newer to your career, you can also mention a project from your post-secondary education. Here is an answer example: "In my previous role we were working on a variety of projects related to the use of open source apps that could be used in the cloud. We addressed everything from the interface to potential security issues. I look forward to applying everything that I learned on this project, to this role with Workday." Here is an answer example: "I find the majority of the projects that I have been working on this past year to be very interesting. If I had to choose one, I would choose to work on the Uber app. Since I am still in my internship, I didn't have any major contributions; however, I learned a lot about on-demand apps and building a friendly user interface."27. In your opinion, what has been the biggest advancement in cloud technology this past year? Display to the interviewer that you have an invested interest in the technology industry by discussing your thoughts on recent advancements. Because Workday focus' on cloud technology, your answer should touch on that area of expertise. Here is an answer example: "There have been many great advancements in cloud technology this year. Recently, I was reading an article discussing how the next couple of years will see nearly all US companies focusing on major digital transformations. I am thrilled to see that companies are now embracing cloud technology, something that once seemed like an impossible feat." Here is an answer example: "The most impressive advancement, in my opinion, is in artificial intelligence, and how cloud computing solves what was once a major capacity problem. The ability to store in the cloud has now improved our abilities when it comes to machine learning."28. This role with Workday is highly technical. What is your understanding of this position and the responsibilities that come with it? Assure the interviewer that you bring a full understanding of the technical requirements attached to this particular job. It is essential that you research the role and thoroughly consume the information provided in Workday's job posting or job description. Keep your answer to the point, highlighting the technical skills that matter. Here is an answer example: "From our previous conversation on the Infrastructure Management role, and understanding the job description, I see this role needs an experienced project life cycle manager focused on leading network engineers and system engineers to ensure the delivery of a secured, scalable and reliable system. The technical requirements that you would like to see are in Scrum, Agile, and tool automation. I am well versed in the tasks and programs you are asking for and am confident that I meet the strict requirements to perform in this role successfully." Here is an answer example: "My understanding is that you seek a candidate with expert level skills in the organizational management of a large-scale, global service. I have eight years experience in a similar leadership role with your competitor, Oracle which will add to my success in this role."29. We seek to hire highly ambitious people. Where would you like your career with Workday take you? Have you researched Workday enough to know how their internal hierarchy works? You will see, through research, that they have a variety of departments and management levels, offering you choices when it comes to carving out your career path.
Some of their departments include:
- Product Development
- Information Systems
- Program Management
- Executive Management
Talk to the interviewer about your career ambitions specifically related to this role and their organization. Here is an answer example: "One of the reasons I was so excited to interview with Workday, is because of the endless growth opportunities you appear to offer your high performing employees. My biggest ambition is to be awarded an executive management role in the next 2-5 years. I was reading your job posting for a Sr. Global Mobility Specialist and would love to work into a role like that one, for instance." Here is an answer example: "What interests me most about your company is that there are so many options when it comes to career growth. Ideally, I would like to earn my way into a program management role; once my PMP is completed. Eventually, a Program Manager role within Risk & Compliance would be ideal. Of course, I understand that this will take many years of dedication and hard work."30. What would you consider your technical specialty? The interviewer would like to know if you have any particular areas of interest or ability. Talk about your strengths and be sure to highlight any specific skills that you excel in. It's a great idea, if you can, to highlight particular skills listed on Workday's posting or job description. If there is a related area of interest where you'd like to expand your capabilities, you can mention those as well. Here is an answer example: "Computing and Communications has always been a solid area for me. I have a big interest in how cloud communications improve our daily lives and our overall business efficiency. I see that you are looking for team members who are experts in Internet-based voice and data communications which is what caught my eye when I first saw your job posting." Here is an answer example: "I have been focusing my career on becoming a cloud integration specialist although I do have cross-platform app development expertise as well."

They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com.
We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website.
Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews.
For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview.
We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers.
We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples.
That is not the purpose of our website.
