Interview Questions: Teamwork


What are your thoughts about working within a team?

To find out how well you work with other people, interviewers often ask "What are your thoughts about working within a team?"

Possible Responses

I get along well with people and enjoy working in a team environment. In my most recent position, I developed a system to help organize the communication between my coworkers to enhance the productivity of our team.

I am comfortable in both leadership and contributor roles and have a lot to offer to a team environment. I'm outgoing (extrovert), friendly, and have strong communication skills. (If you are an introvert rather than an extrovert, you can still work well within a team. So, don't worry about your specific personality traits too much in this case. Think about how you can contribute and your past experiences.)

Actually, teamwork is my preference. Each team member brings something unique to the table. They contribute different perspectives and the synergy between team members can produce creative and productive results.
