"Being in this profession we always have such situations where we end up dealing with some problematic parents. Dealing with them is pretty simple in a way. You just have to listen to their problem, talk to them and try to figure out some solution which will leave them satisfied and happy in the end. I believe in open conversation and also that if you act patiently and honestly then you will not have any issues with any parent at all."
As an attendance clerk you will be facing several situations in which you will have to deal with challenging parents. How do you react in such situations. As someone who is working with schools, you need to be resourceful. There is no need of hesitating or reaching out to the authorities or the counsellor if there is a need but make sure you have taken all the corrective measures from your side before doing that. For answering this question, you can use an example of a situation where you had to deal with some challenging parent, you can also mention how often you end up facing such situations. Move on to telling what you did in such situation and then also tell what was the result.

"Whenever there is some stressful situation, I try to focus on the work and divide it in parts and prioritise it on the basis of importance and thus try to complete it before the deadline. In my last job, when one of my colleagues went out on holiday and another one fell sick we were left with less manpower, and were overloaded with work. My supervisor delegated some of the work to me although I was already overloaded with work but I decided to take up the challenge and worked over time. I planned my work accordingly did it before the final deadline. My supervisor was very happy and treated me with lunch."
To answer this question, start by giving an example of a situation where you were faced with a stressful situation and you managed it well. Avoid mentioning situations where you put yourself in unnecessary stress by not doing some work. Instead mention some situation where you were given more work and you rose to the occasion.
