QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt
& Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best
Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"
(new edition) and "More

What are some of the
things you find difficult to do?
The interviewer is looking to
determine how well you know yourself, how you react to difficult
situations/tasks and credibility. Look back over your work
experience for examples of challenges...speaking in public at a meeting,
disagreeing with a manager over an important issue, being asked to use a
software program you have not had an opportunity to learn...
These 'stories' should
illustrate a lesson learned, a problem overcome or a weakness being dealt
"I always seem to need a
day or two to prepare myself to give a presentation to department heads.
When I know I have to give a report on my projects, I plan out all the
details in advance and rehearse. One time, there was a problem with
a supplier and I was asked to update senior
management...immediately. The supply chain was crucial to the
completion of an important project we had been working on for 5 months and
decisions had to be made based on the information I had to prepare and
present on a moment's notice. I gathered the information and
presented it simply and in detail. It was much easier than I thought
without the hours of concern and practice. The facts spoke for
themselves. Since I understood the situation, I was able to make it
clear to management and get a rapid decision. I still prefer advance
notice but I know I can deliver when asked to."
