Example #11
"I would describe my personality as approachable yet firm, and positive. I believe that, if asked, my colleagues and supervisor would say the same about me."
Example #12
"I'm mostly introverted, and I don't get bored easily. I tend to be quite detail oriented, so I notice things that other people might not. I'm also a positive person most of the time."
Example #13
"Three words that I would use to describe myself would be: Reliable, Honest, and Hard-Working. I say this because I truly do put my patients first. They can rely on me to work overtime when needed and I would never avoid work for my own self-gain."
Example #14
"I would describe myself as creative, patient and encouraging. I have been told from my peers, colleagues and students that these are, indeed, characteristics that I carry."
Example #15
"I would describe myself as being driven, meticulous and reliable."
Example #16
"I would describe my approach to work as focused, responsible, and organized. Once given a project or task, I like to figure out what the workflow will look like and decide which tools or resources I will need to engage in reaching my goals. My current boss has commented many times that she appreciates how I can keep myself and others focused on the task at hand."
Example #17
"This job is rewarding to me in so many ways. More than anything, I am happy and thankful when I see someone who has been my client who actually goes through rehab and begins counseling and then chooses to stay in a life of sobriety free from drugs and alcohol. There have been times when some of my previous clients have stopped by or called just to tell me that they are ok and that they are living a clean life and how their lives have changed. This is one of the most rewarding feelings I have ever experienced."
Example #18
"I describe myself as energetic, insightful, and playful. I am energetic both outside of work and inside as I am always ready to get work done, I am insightful because I like to think hard about my work before getting started, and I am playful because I am always trying to find unique ways of writing that will surprise the readers and interest them."
Example #19
"I would describe myself as witty, spontaneous, creative, humorous, and dedicated."

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.
