Question 1 of 25
How to Answer
This is an operational question which the interview will ask to determine how you go about doing your job. While there probably isn't a typical day for a project manager, you should be able to describe the general tasks and duties you perform in this role. Again, you can use this question and your answer to highlight your qualifications for this specific job. You accomplished this by aligning your answer with the requirements detailed in the job posting and the research you've conducted before the interview.
"I perform a variety of different tasks and duties during my typical day. I usually start with a review of the previous day's progress on the project I am managing. I then conduct brief interviews with the project team to understand their plans for the day and any challenges or impediments they have identified or anticipate. The balance of the day is spent meeting with project stakeholders, other cross-functional teams within the organization, outside resources, and other people who may contribute to the success of the project. I usually conclude the day by sending out a project status report which updates everybody on the day's progress and our plans going forward."
