OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"Whether I am doing an independent project, or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well."
Example #2
"Most of my recent administration experience has been independently focused so I would welcome the support of working in a team environment."
Example #3
"I like managing a team, so if I had to pick one over the other, I would say that working as part of a team would be my preference. With that said, I can complete projects independently as needed."
Example #4
"As a content marketer, I have a good blend of independent and teamwork experience. When it comes to strategy for a new project, I love working in a team environment. Once it comes to the final details of the content or copy, I prefer to work in a quieter, more focused environment."
Example #5
"All I have known is working on a team, in a retail environment. I am self-disciplined and am confident that I could thrive in an independent work setting as well."
Example #6
"I work on the road a lot, and by myself most often. When it's time to collaborate with my sales assistant or director, I find that I crave the camaraderie. I would like a position that offers a bit more teamwork than I currently have."
Example #7
"I can thrive in a team-based situation as well as independently. When it comes to finalizing my class work or marking, I do prefer to go it alone. Otherwise, team collaboration is very welcome!"
Example #8
"Whether I am doing an independent project, or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well."
Example #9
"Most of my recent retail experience includes independent work since I currently manage a kiosk, so I would welcome the support of working in a team environment. Whether I am doing an independent project or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well."
Example #10
"Whether I am doing an independent task, or working on a collaborative one, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well."

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.
