Interview Answer

1 Answer


*This was unexpected largely because I didn't feel it all that relevant. Sure, on a very general level, knowing how someone deals with obstacles can be beneficial; but, everyone deals with obstacles and everyone overcomes them-it's really not a skill that's in short supply* My reply to the question also came in a general form where I explained, rather rhetorically now that I think about it, that I had moved around a lot and that always being the new guy in town presented some unique social obstacles that were always emotionally difficult to overcome at first; but, that I always seemed to find a way to adapt and fit in somewhere I could learn and grow as a person, which eventually led to me becoming a very outspoken and confident individual capable of becoming the top sales rep at multiple companies throughout my young, blossoming career. Pretty decent answer, don't you think? I'm not so sure she was all that impressed! ;-P
