Pm Questions Essay

437 words - 2 pages

Now... imagine you have arrived at the interview with your folio of crisp resumes, references, and work examples... you do have all that stuff, right? You are ushered to the conference room, where you confidently shake hands and greet your interviewer(s.) You take a seat, take one deep breath... and we’re off!

e. an underperforming team member, or resource conflict) and how you dealt with it?”

“Have you managed remote or multi-cultural teams? How did you deal with issues that arose from working with such teams?”

“What interests you about this job and company? 

“What qualifies you for this job?” 

That’s my list! If you’d like to see the original post and comments they were posted in a couple other PM groups:

WHAT OTHER COMMON PROJECT MANAGEMENT INTERVIEW QUESTIONS HAVE YOU HEARD? If you have additional questions, or updates to the questions above, please post them here. Let’s help each other prepare for the next time one of us is headed off to a new job interview.
