Interview Questions 2020: Adaptability Part 3

Adaptability might be the most desirable soft skill there is at the moment – because new technology and evolving businesses need employees who are capable of keeping up. It’s estimated that 54% of us will need to reskill or upskill over the coming years – so blinkered, limited or stubborn employees are going out of fashion quick. 

#3: Recall a time when you were assigned a task outside of your job description. How did you handle the situation? What was the outcome?

Here, the interviewer is looking for evidence that you understand your job may evolve over time – and that this isn’t something that’s going to throw you off balance. Be positive, show that you were willing to change, and talk about the steps you took to make sure you were doing your best work.
