4. Rate your communication skills from 1-10 with proper examples backing your given rating.
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know how you rate your communication skills. First, on a scale of 1-10, discuss how skilled are you in communication. Try to avoid giving yourself a 10, and 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 communication dud! Try to remain in the 7.5-9.5 range while staying honest and accurate. Use an example of your excellent communication to back your answer.
"I rate my communication skills as a 9/10 as I will, on occasion, have times when I am not as clear as I would like to be. My supervisor and co-workers will attest to my clear and concise communication skills. Because I am an open leader, my team will let me know if I need to clarify anything."
"I will rate myself an eight because I value communication but, just like most people, I have things to learn. Some ways that I ensure clear communication are by utilizing multiple methods of delivering messages, and I give ample time for questions before implementing changes."
"I will rate myself an 8.5 because I consider myself a strong communicator, especially when relaying important policy changes to my team. It is the foundation of all success in business. I am always striving to be a better communicator, so I leave the rest of the scale as an aspirational measure."
"Communication is at the heart of what we do in marketing. We have to communicate messages, brand stories, and more. I am an exceptional communicator and will rate myself as a 9/10 and always improving."
"I will rate my communication skills a 7.5/10. I am newer to my career, but I have gone through a great deal of training in customer service. I plan only to become better! If you have recommendations on books or training, I would love to hear them."
"I should not rate myself as a 10/10 because I do not believe everyone is perfect in communication. I would describe myself as an advanced communicator since the majority of my job requires the exchange of important information."
"Teachers need to be excellent communicators! In addition to my formal training in education, I have also taken workshops focused on dispute resolution, communication styles, and body language. I would rate myself 9/10 and continually improving!"
