Most people are resistant to change. As young professionals, we have the opportunity to look at things with a new perspective without the blinders of the status quo. Having the willingness and optimism to identify problems and initiate solutions will set your career on a quick upward path.
Problem-solving is a skill that can be utilized at every level of the organization. Employers need associates that are able to gather the right information to communicate a problem, pull different resources to develop a solution, and have the confidence and influence to execute on those solutions.
Questions that lead you to prove your problem-solving skills will more than likely be asked in your interview. Be ready to identify the problem, explain what role you played in developing and executing the solution, and summarize the end result.
Sample Interview Questions:
