Question 2 of 26
How would others describe you?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
We recommend always sticking with professional relationships when answering this question. If the interviewer has not already asked how your coworkers view you, immediately dive into their perceptions of you! The kudos you have received from your teammates and the handwritten thank you notes you have received following baby showers for co-workers all give you hints about how to answer this question. Think about all of the positive things your co-workers have mentioned to you along the way. Now is the time to share them! Pick 2-3 encouraging things these people have said about you, and share them openly. Maybe that baby shower thank you note mentions your caring attitude. Perhaps your teammate thanked you recently for always working so hard to achieve goals you are working on. Positivity is key! What if you have already talked about your coworkers' perceptions? No problem! Talk about how your past managers have viewed you using the same technique!

Question 3 of 26
Are you good at multitasking?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Housekeepers need to multi-task to ensure they have every space cleaned prior to guests arriving for a stay, and the interviewer wants to hear that you can meet this expectation. Think about a way that you are really good at multi-tasking. Are you able to cook dinner, watch the kids, and plan your weekend activities at the same time? Are you able to do laundry, chat with a friend, and pick out a new outfit online all at the same time? These personal examples are great for answering this question! When asked, mention that you can multi-task well, and share your example!

Question 4 of 26
How energetic a person would you say you are?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Be candid and share openly how energetic you are. The interviewer is simply trying to learn more about your personality and how you will fit into their existing team. The key is that you have a positive attitude whether or not you are an energetic person. You might say something like this: "I like to be a positive person and encourage my peers and work. I tend to be a go-with-the-flow person ensuring that I work hard. I typically am not a peppy personality. Instead, I like to have a smile on my face and have meaningful conversations when opportunities arise."

What makes you the best person for this job?

How to Answer
Talking about ourselves in this way can be challenging. We recommend reaching out to a few colleagues, family members, and friends. Ask them for their opinion. You'll probably be surprised at the consistency in their responses! Their answers will give you insight into how to answer this question. Tell the interviewer what sets you apart, and explain how your co-workers, family members, and friends have encouraged you with your gift in this area.
