TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I would say that my listening skills are a 9/10. My supervisor recently mentioned how much he appreciates that I do not check my phone in the middle of a conversation as many people do."
Example #2
"I am certainly not perfect so that I will rate myself an 8/10 for listening skills. I could be more present at times, especially when a conversation seems to be dragging on an on, or a meeting is running past time. I think my current boss would rate me around the same, if not a bit higher. I do have a penchant for recalling small details which seems to impress him quite often."
Example #3
"I will rate myself as an 8.75/10. I have solid listening skills, primarily when it comes to learning about my team and their needs. Being involved and available is a fundamental part of making my team feel important and listened to. In a recent performance review, my team has let me know that they appreciate my listening skills."
Example #4
"Listening, and discovering everything there is to learn about our clients and their audience is the most important part of creating a marketing strategy that works. We must understand and absorb everything that we can to best form and communicate an effective brand story, for example. I am proud of my listening skills and will rate myself as a 9/10."
Example #5
"I spend my day listening to my customers, and their needs. I have been well trained and would rate my listening skills as an 8/10. My customers often thank me for listening to what they need and making accurate suggestions."
Example #6
"To make a sale, and a repeat customer, I need to utilize second-to-none listening skills. I have had many clients comment on my ability to listen, and remember what they have to say. My sales manager has also complimented me on my abilities in this area. For that reason, I will rate myself as a 9.5/10!"
Example #7
"My students often comment on how well I listen to them. When we are in class, and one-on-one, I make sure to eliminate distractions and give them my full attention. I will rate my listening skills as a 9/10. There is always room to grow, and I am sure to embrace any feedback that I receive from my leadership team or a student."
Example #8
"I would say that my listening skills are a 9/10. My supervisor recently mentioned how much he appreciates that I do not check my phone in the middle of a conversation as many people do."
Example #9
"I am certainly not perfect so that I will rate myself an 8.5/10 for listening skills. I could be more present at times, especially when a conversation with a coworker seems to be trivial. I think my current boss would rate me around the same, if not a bit higher. I do have a penchant for recalling small details of a conversation, which seems to impress him quite often."

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.
