Question 1 of 11
How do you handle stress and pressure?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I handle stress and pressure by looking at the bigger picture, and seeing how the situation at hand can make me a better person.
2.
I feed off of pressure. The higher the stakes, the more focused I am. Stress gives me headaches, but besides that, it's just another form of pressure.
3.
Space, talk about it, come to an understanding.
4.
It depends on the situation, I always make sure all my other colleagues are aware of the situation because telling no one doesn't help.
5.
I handle stress and pressure very well. I do not let things get to me and keep me from doing whatever task I am working on. If I am stressing out I still do not let it show or get in the way.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
