How to Answer

Talk to the interviewer about any interest that you have in creative activities and how you have implemented your creative desires in the workplace. Even if you do not consider yourself to be a 'creative person,' there is a significant change that you have made creative minded decisions in your career.

Professional Answer Examples
General
Answer example

"I do consider myself to be a creative individual. One example of this would be the telephone sales scripts that I crafted for our inside sales team. They were lively and effective, and sales increased by 23% in the first 90 days of implementation."

Admin
Answer example

"I am someone who alternates back and forth with the right/left brain, but I will always consider myself a very creative person. I admire the creativity and unconventional thinking in business and arts."

Manager
Answer example

"That's an interesting question for me because I have never considered myself creative in the traditional sense of being artistic. I am, however, a very creative individual when it comes to new ways to motivate my team."

Marketing
Answer example

"I consider myself creative! I have had a flair for the arts and thinking outside of the box, ever since I was a child. My mother says I danced before I could walk and I always loved to take on new creative projects."

Retail
Answer example

"Having been a musician all my life, I do believe that I am a creative person. I grew up playing the piano and still practice a couple of times per week."

Sales
Answer example

"I am creative in the sense that I am great at seeing all sides of a negotiation, I can use creativity to close a deal, and I am a solid writer. With that said, give me a paintbrush, and I will have no idea what to do. I suppose creativity comes in all forms!"

Teacher
Answer example

"Yes, I do consider myself to be a creative individual. I will often work with my students on hands-on projects. I believe in the use of multi-media to teach, and learn."

Superintendent
Answer example

"I do consider myself to be a creative individual. One example of this would be the variety of school fundraisers and programs that I have headed over the years. I try to incorporate new and exciting initiatives for my students on a regular basis."

Chef
Answer example

"Yes, I think being creative is part of the job as a Chef. That is one of the reasons why I became a chef. I enjoy mixing a variety of items and trying to create that unique pairing which really sets a dish off. This is in part, what attracted me to your restaurant. "

Daycare Worker
Answer example

"Having been a musician all my life, I do believe that I am a creative person. I grew up playing the piano and still practice a couple of times per week. The kids I work with love it when I bring my keyboard. They dance and sing, and it's so sweet to see them express their creativity through music."

Marketing Communications Manager
Answer example

"I am creative in the sense that I am great at seeing all sides of a company's communication and marketing needs. I can use creativity to close a deal with a new client, and I am a solid writer. With that said, give me a paintbrush, and I will have no idea what to do. I suppose creativity comes in all forms!"

Floral Designer
Answer example

"I consider myself to be very creative! I am able to create beautiful arrangements on any budget and take calculated risks with designs when my clients allow for it."

Statistician
Answer example

"I would certainly consider myself creative. Most of my life I have spent time in the arts and I enjoy being creative in my off time. I exercise creativity every time I walk into a new project. I need to assess the situation, create an outline, discover key elements of the project and put everything together like a story in the end."
