      Anonymous Answer

      "I value honesty and support. I am seeking an employer who understands the value of work/life balance and is supportive."

      Lauren's Answer

      It would be helpful to the interviewer if you expanded upon your thoughts of honesty and support in the workplace. With specificity around those subjects, they will get a better sense of your work style and culture expectations. Cultural fit is always on the forefront of an interviewer’s mind.

      "Honesty and support are important to me in the workplace. I appreciate clear communication and directives, so that I may fulfill my duties and exceed expectations. Support can be conveyed in many forms such as collaborative projects, shared tasks, or positive morale. Feeling supported increases my motivation and stamina."

      "The top three things I find most important to me in a job would probably have to be honesty, support, and transparency."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This response may leave more questions than answers. How can an employer offer you transparency, for instance? Like, in what way is this important to you? Do they support you in your learning, as you train, in your future career goals? Try being more specific. Please see below.

      "The top three things that are most important to me are honesty, support, and transparency. I am seeking an employer who actively encourages employees to be open about their achievements, creating a safe and open workplace for all."
