What was the biggest change you have had to deal with in your career?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"The biggest change that I have faced in my career so far would be when my previous company went through a major merger. We had to adapt to new processes and management which was quite challenging. In the end, it worked out well for the company, in a financial perspective, so the changes were well worth the challenges we faced initially."
Example #2
"The biggest change in my career was learning to report to an entirely new management team when we merged with a competitor. It's difficult to adjust, but I was able to keep an open mind, and met some great new people."
Example #3
"The biggest change in my career came when my company experienced major layoffs. One-third of my production team experienced layoffs even though our work volume remained nearly the same. I adjusted the schedule, introduced a new overtime policy, and worked very hard to maintain morale despite the changes."
Example #4
"The biggest change I have dealt with in my career is when my company closed their PA location, and I was asked to relocate to VA. It was a risk on my part, but I chose to follow the company to their new location. It paid off as I continued another five years of success there."
Example #5
"I went through a large change last year when our company purchases another small competitor. We integrated systems, some staff, and a few policies. The corporate head office did the best they could to make the change a smooth one."
Example #6
"The most prominent change in my career was when I transferred from strategic national account rollout to local market rollout. This move taught me a lot about myself. I learned how to be more adaptable and resilient."
Example #7
"The biggest change I have had to deal with in my career was when my Spanish curriculum was cut, and I was transferred to a new school where I was to teach English and Mathematics. The new role was slightly out of my wheelhouse, so I spent a lot of time refreshing my knowledge in these areas."
Example #8
"The biggest change that I have faced in my career so far would be when my previous company went through a major merger. We had to adapt to new processes and management which was quite challenging. In the end it worked out well for the company, in a financial perspective, so the changes were well worth the challenges we faced initially."
Example #9
"The biggest change that I have faced in my career so far would be when my previous company went through a major merger. We had to adapt to new processes and management which was quite challenging. In the end, it worked out well for the company, in a financial perspective, so the changes were well worth the challenges we faced initially."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
