Tell me about a professional experience where your integrity or moral code was challenged?
This behavioural interview question asks for a quick case study, and the answer depends on the role you are interviewing for. An HR manager, who is judging you for your past behaviour, maybe looking for an honest and open candidate who can tell a story about their past experience professionally.
Many candidates going for an interview need to prepare for common questions that may be difficult or tricky, just to present themselves as an ideal person for the job.
It is good to know what is a strong, favourable response which the hiring managers and HR professionals might be expecting to hear.
Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a challenging or difficult personality at work?
Here the hiring manager is checking your communication/interpersonal skills, and how you navigate a relationship with a difficult coworker in a respectful manner. Even if you didn’t handle it well in the past, you can add that you are wiser now and would tackle such people in a different way in the present. It demonstrates that you are a learner.
Nothing is more impressive than arriving at an interview and being prepared and well informed about the company - its values, goals, history, current events, and who you might be meeting with.
Todd Davis, the CPO of FranklinCovey, commented on one particular interview he did. The candidate was well prepared and knew and understood more about the company than many of the existing employees. Davis was so impressed that he directly took the candidate to the CEO's office.
Here’s a few ideas on how to address this question in a thoughtful way:
Gettingto know a new person can be so tough without ever getting the chance to meet in person, so if I get the opportunity to get to know your staff, I plan to do my best to take every opportunity to share my perspective, my story and my experience. I hope this will allow me to introduce myself in a way that doesn't put too much of a burden on my future colleagues, especially while we're all navigating remote work.”
When the interviewer asks you, “Tell me about yourself”, he is hoping this question will get you talking. It will give him a first impression of you, and set the tone for the interview. He wants to establish if you can be a good fit.
This is a good opportunity for you to highlight the points that you want this potential employer to know about you.
