How to talk about CONFLICT in a Job Interview

Just when you’re starting to settle into the #interview, the hiring team asks you, “Tell us about a time you had conflict in the workplace.” 😳

This one is TOUGH! Here are some tips to consider when answering this question: 👉 Everyone has conflict at work - it doesn’t mean a “fight” necessarily - it can be as simple as a disagreement on how to approach a problem. 👉 Own up to your role in the conflict. No one likes a finger-pointer! 👉 Set the stage clearly as to the background for the issue, what was the disagreement, and ultimately if/how it was resolved. 👉 Be sure to end your answer with lessons learned and what you’d do differently next time!

A really good company is not going to ask you about conflict. What a strange question.

Conflict happens on the job, and being cool-headed and fair matters.
