Question: Are you a team player?
Response: I consider myself a team player. For any team to be effective, each member of the team should contribute to the common goal to leverage the synergies the team. I strive to contribute my best as an individual team member so that we succeed as a team. I enjoy being part of a team as it gives more perspectives other than my own.
Notes: This question is two-fold. It’s asking you whether you are effective as an individual and as a team member. Your response, like above, should demonstrate both the qualities.
Variation(s) of this question:
- Can you work independently?
Trap alert: Try avoiding taking sides, that is, do not over emphasize on being either team player or independent contributor, you should always strike balance between both settings.
