Interviewers want to know that they’re hiring people with great coping skills when the going gets tough.
So, how do you answer this question in a way that will impress your interviewer?
Here are a few ideas:
“On the job, I react to situations rather than stress. My philosophy is, the only way to get past the stress is to handle the task at hand so I can move forward.”
“I size up the situation to get a clear sense of what needs to be done and, if necessary, I re-prioritize my responsibilities to effectively manage the issue.”
“Fortunately, I do some of my best work under pressure. It’s an organic part of working in a dynamic environment and I find it more invigorating then anything.”
“I have a well-balanced personal life, part of which includes regular workouts. I’ve found that what I do outside of the workplace has really helped me stay calm and balanced when I’m faced with stressful situations at work.”
A good answer will be truthful while showcasing your exceptional or unique coping abilities!
