Example #14
"The clinic where I currently work has an extensive patient demographic. This diversity keeps me on my toes during rounds. Everyone's needs are different. I have to be sensitive to varying cultures, genders, and religions. It has stretched me as a medical professional, and I wouldn't have it any other way."
Example #15
"I have worked as a reading teacher in both private and public schools. The private education facilities naturally see a more affluent family demographic where the public system has exposed me to a wider variety of populations. I am open to working with all types of populations and am not adverse, in any way, to diversity."
Example #16
"The last class that I taught really didn't have much diversity because the students were all mostly from the same area. I have received diversity training and I'm very fair and consistent in the way I treat everyone. Regardless of anyone's culture, children universally respond to a teacher who listens carefully and adapts to their specific needs. I treat everyone as an individual."
Example #17
"I have worked in culturally diverse populations, and I am accustomed to the challenges that come with being on top of issues related to culture, race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, and disability. One of the reasons that I love working as a Mental Health Counselor is that I get the opportunity to grow and learn as I help others. I achieve this growth by keeping an open mind and remaining up to date on conversations that are happening amongst various populations and groups. I stay informed and aware through watching the news, reading industry blogs, and through my volunteer work at the homeless shelter, which brings me so much awareness of others. Our world is forever changing when it comes to the needs of every culture and group, so to have a beat on diversity across the board is critical to my success as a Mental Health Counselor."
Example #18
"I am willing to work overtime, as my clients need. I value my personal time, but I can be flexible as to when I take that time. I fully understand that my clients need me to be there for them on weekends and evenings when applicants are more likely available to do property viewings and come to open houses or walkthroughs."
Example #19
"The majority of my job is spent in the morgue with just a few other colleagues. Some days my scenery changes as well as the cases. The one thing I love about my job is that no two days are the same."
Example #20
"I have worked with students from various backgrounds ever since I started teaching five years ago. One of the most memorable was when I worked with a child who was a recent immigrant from Sudan. Her English skills snowballed because I would spend an extra 30 minutes with her before school started. She was such an eager and fast learner, I will never forget that rewarding experience."
Example #21
"I am very comfortable working with a diverse range of individuals. Currently, I volunteer at the local homeless shelter and it's as diverse as you can imagine. I come across the most wonderful people and it makes for very memorable conversations."
Example #22
"I have worked in a variety of industries such as supply chain, logistics, and medical - all which attract a wide range of personalities and backgrounds. Currently, I work alongside our polished c-suite team and also spend time inside of our warehouse. This workload means one day I am in a board meeting taking notes, and the next, I am training our labor teams on new safety policies. I am often changing my approach and lingo to best suit those whom I am addressing. Rest assured, I am confident in my ability to approach and relate to a wide range of individuals within your company."
Example #23
"I have worked as a 911 Dispatcher for many years, facing a huge range of situations. Every call is different, and I am well accustomed to adapting to each situation. The level of help or service that I offer has never wavered depending on race, culture, or social standing. The diverse range of people that I come across every day certainly keeps me sharp, and aware of the varying needs of others."
Example #24
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my acting career, including my time in University. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers a great learning opportunity."
Example #25
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my customer service career, including my time in university. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers many opportunities for continued learning."
Example #26
"When I was working at the homeless shelter, there were people of all nationalities and backgrounds. It was interesting to hear their stories and get to know them. I really enjoyed being able to support them through their difficult time."
Example #27
"I do have experience working with Alzheimer's patients. I used to work on an Alzheimer's ward in a nursing home. I was responsible for planning activities for the patients based on their level of understanding and abilities to participate."
Example #28
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career, including my time in university. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers a great learning opportunity."
Example #29
"I recently became engaged. Although we have not set a date yet, we have agreed to wait twelve months before the marriage. My fiance' just passed the Bar exam here and has been offered an opportunity to join an existing law firm. Presently, our plans are to stay where we are and build a career, not just work a job. Also, we do not plan on having children for at least two years after our marriage. We both feel that being able to become established in our careers and save for our future would be the responsible thing to do before starting a family."
Example #30
"At my last position, I have had to complete a project on a very short notice, as revised by a difficult client at the last minute. Notwithstanding the amount of work involved and the client's impatience, and the technical problems encountered along the way, I got to work immediately and ensured a high level of professionalism. I used numerous lists to keep track of the daily duties to be performed, and delegated some duties to ensure all expectations would be met. The project was completed by the deadline and the client was highly satisfied. This experience enabled me to learn how to adapt to unexpected situations and further develop my time management skills. Another example took place while working as (X position title) for (X company). I was responsible for (X related duties proving your ability to adapt to various situations, people and environments)."
Example #31
"I have no problem working with customers from all walks of life. I understand that everyone's different, and I can adapt easily to different personalities and communication styles."
