How do you balance both your family and your job?

How to Use

Interviewer: How do you balance both your family and your job?

Greg: It can be hard to maintain a good work-life balance because I often work long hours. But I think the most important thing is to take advantage of the time that I do have with my family.

Interviewer: What exactly do you mean?

Greg: What I mean is that sometimes I can't avoid working late or working on the weekend. My career is important to me and it helps me support my family. I think that my family understands this. So, when I do have time to spend with my family, then I need to make the most of it.

Interviewer: So, what do you do to make the most of your time with them?

Greg: Honestly, whatever they want to do. My two sons love playing soccer, so whenever I have time I play soccer with them. My wife likes to travel, so whenever there is an extended holiday or whenever I can find time, we travel together as a family.

Interviewer: That's nice. I know it can be hard sometimes for people working in this kind of high-pressure job.
