Are you a risk-taker?

How to Use

Interviewer: Are you a risk-taker?

Tina: That is a tough question to answer because it depends a lot on the situation.

Interviewer: What do you mean?

Tina: Each situation is unique and has different risks and rewards. I am not afraid to take risks, but I want to make sure that what I am doing is a smart decision. I also don't want to take any unnecessary risks.

Interviewer: Can you tell about a time that you took a risk?

Tina: I think that quitting my job last month was a risk. There is no guarantee that I will find a better job. However, after I thought about it for a long time, I decided that I was confident enough in my abilities to take that risk.

Interviewer: And what makes you so confident?

Tina: I have been successful at every job I have ever had and I know that I could do this job really well if given the chance.
