Team working

The interviewer will ask you at least a couple of question about working with other people. Be prepared and say the truth if you prefer to work alone as freelancer for example.

Give some examples of teamwork

Use the STAR interview technique response technique.
  • Situation: describe the context within which you performed a job or faced a challenge at work. For example, perhaps you were working on a group project, or you had a conflict with a coworker. This situation can be from a work experience, a volunteer position, or any other relevant event. Be as specific as possible.
  • Task: describe your responsibility in that situation. Perhaps you had to help your group complete a project under a tight deadline, resolve a conflict with a coworker, or hit a sales target.
  • Action: You then describe how you completed the task or endeavored to meet the challenge. Focus on what you did, rather than what your team, boss, or coworker did. (Tip: Instead of saying "We did xyx," say "I did xyz.")
  • Result: explain the outcomes or results generated by the action taken. You might emphasize what you accomplished, or what you learned.
