Tell me about a time you made a mistake. How did you handle it? (Bad & Good Answers)

Bad Answer: My attitude is that when people make mistakes is general because they’re not working hard enough. When you say you’re gonna do something, you should follow through and do it. I’m a meticulous editor and i rarely make mistakes. Good Answer: One example that comes to mind is that i mixed up the deadline on a short article during my first job out of college and what i realize when it happened i notified my editor right away and this was on Friday so i worked on it over the weekend and had it ready to go on Monday and i felt good about the fact that i took responsibility for my mistake right away and took steps to solve the situation.
