By: Rachelle Enns

How to Answer

The interviewer is looking for an honest take on your coworker relationships. Be sure to incorporate some unique keywords that will make your answer stand out. Assuming that other candidates will describe themselves as friendly, with considerable attention to detail, what clever describing words can you come up with?

Here are some fresh options to choose from:

- Adaptable
- Courteous
- Diligent
- Exuberant
- Intuitive
- Persistent
- Resourceful
- Sincere
- Unassuming
- Witty

Professional Answer Examples
Admin
Answer example

"My coworkers would say that I am diligent and resourceful. I won't stop until I find an answer or innovation in every situation. I will use my creative thinking skills to come up with solutions and often see options that others do not."

Manager
Answer example

"As a manager, and a person in general, my coworkers would describe me as unassuming and intuitive. I know what my team needs before they voice the need and I do not manage in a way that makes anyone feel inferior or afraid. I am talented but do not need to announce this or demand respect."

Marketing
Answer example

"My resourcefulness and exuberance are the two traits that my coworkers would comment on the most. I am not the type of marketer to just throw money at a situation. I dive deep into the research and use my creative mind to create successful strategies. I have a lot of energy at work and hope this exuberance rubs off on them even on the toughest of days."

Retail
Answer example

"My coworkers and I get along very well. I believe the first thing they would comment on is my level of sincerity with the team and with my customers. I am honest about my feelings but keep the feelings of others top of mind when delivering feedback, for example."

Sales
Answer example

"I am adaptable to any situation. My coworkers comment on this quite often because I have an uncanny ability to fit in with any type of client in any setting. I am a great salesperson to bring with you to meetings because of my ability to warm up a room."

Teacher
Answer example

"My sincerity and persistence with my students are the traits that my colleagues would speak to the most. I adore my students and truly care about their success. I encourage genuine conversation and never allow a student to speak poorly about themselves."
