Senior writer/editor interview questions shared by candidates
How would you deal with people freaking out to meet the deadline for a USAID proposal?
I said that I am generally an easy-going person, used to deadlines, treat colleagues with respect--but also believe there would be less freaking out if a standard procedure and timelines were developed to ensure a smooth proposal development process and minimize last-minute panic.
We have two projects with the same deadline and everyone is working overtime. One client is easy going and encourages us, the other constantly calls to find out how the project is going and when it will be done. Which project is your top priority.
Asked to describe how I handle a difficult requests from middle managers, including how I would order the work when several ranking managers also made requests.
