As a project manager, it is your job to oversee the creation and execution of company projects and ensure that all team members stay on track to meet deadlines. Expect interview questions that will assess your ability to lead a group and communicate effectively to members with different roles and varying concerns. As the scope, schedule, and cost of a project can change frequently, the interviewer may ask you to role-play a few scenarios in which a project deadline changes or several group members leave the company.
How would you deliver a project when there are two conflicting directives issued by your manager and your manager's manager?
Communicate these directives, first to your manager, then come to an agreement. Communicate to your manager's manager the reason behind what this agreement is to move forward. Correct protocol shows respect to both managers and solid communication skills.
