How do maintain a balance between work and the rest of your life?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a FBI interview

How to Answer

You are probably familiar with the term "work-life balance." When companies talk about their culture, they will often throw this term around, explaining how they support their employees by supporting them in managing their stress and having a life outside of work. Unfortunately, as you know, even with the encouragement of a healthy work environment, it can be difficult to achieve this balance. In the end, it's up to you! No matter how urgent your deadlines, you will ultimately need to be able to know when to put on the brakes and give yourself a mental health day. What tools do you use to manage your busy workload? How do you manage deadlines? Explain what you have found works best for you. It might a good idea to also familiarize yourself with the industry and expectations. You can ask questions too!
