The questions might also be situational or behavioral questions, which are used to see how a potential employee would deal with a real-world scenario to solve a problem or evaluate how they would approach a certain situation. The solution to these types of questions is to give specific examples of how you handled similar situations in past roles.
Take a narrative approach when answering questions. Tell stories! For example, if an interviewer asks how you meet quarterly goals, you could write something like: "Last April, I had to monitor and replenish order sales to increase our revenue. I created an action plan for myself with a new marketing approach, and with deadlines as to when each order was due to monitor the amount of inventory used. I finished that month with a 15% increase in sales."
Before you send your responses to the questions, keep in mind that spelling and grammar are incredibly important, so double-check all of your responses to make sure proper grammar and punctuation are intact. Consider writing your question responses in a Word or Google document – that way you can use the grammar and spell-check tools that are available in both of those programs. Once you have your responses in order, copy and paste into the email and send.
