How to Answer
In the workplace, there is a delicate balance between being independent and working well in a team. As someone who works well independently, you will need to be able to self-manage. This means you can make good judgments and decisions on your own, without having to ask for help. Of course, there will be times when you need assistance or support from your boss or team. However, you want to show that you can be trusted to get your work done and communicate when you need help. Give an example of a time when you were trusted to handle a project for you to complete on your own. Explain how you were able to meet the deadline and complete the tasks required of you. If you needed help from the team, talk about how you all worked together or how you learned to delegate tasks to others, communicating what you needed from them along the way.

How do you adapt to changes at work?

How to Answer
When you are working with a team to satisfy customer needs, things can change quickly on the job! Your customer may have asked for one thing, but later change their minds. You will need to be able to relax and learn to expect changes. Your schedule could change to accommodate a customer demanding that a project is finished a week early, requiring you to work longer hours. You could have to dig up plants that your customer specifically requested because they decided they wanted something different instead. Your boss may also ask you to take on more responsibility, requesting you lead the team while he is on vacation. Whatever the case may be, share that you stay positive and calm. You can adjust to any changes or obstacles that get thrown in your path.

Question 5 of 35
