How are your interpersonal skills?

How to Use

Interviewer: How are your interpersonal skills?

Sharon: I have strong interpersonal skills. I have strong listening skills, verbal communication, and decision-making skills.

Interviewer: In what situations have these skills helped you at work?

Sharon: At my previous job, we often had to work together on projects. There were many times when we needed to make a decision as a group. Therefore, there were many meetings where we shared and listened to everybody's ideas and opinions. It was very important for me to listen to everyone's ideas, and then be able to persuasively express my own ideas. And finally, I needed to be able to compromise with my co-workers and come to an agreement with them.

Interviewer: Were there ever times that you didn't get what you wanted?

Sharon: Of course. But you know what they say, you don't always get what you want.

Interviewer: That's very true.
