Interview Answer 9

Legal Interview Question 9 (with answer) - Do you prefer to work in a team or on your own?

Difficult question again - devil and the deep blue sea! You could come down with the 'I am an innovator, and prefer to develop my ideas as an individual, as well as take responsibility for my caseload'; but you will then get a question thrown back about your inability to thrive in a team environment. On the flip side of the coin if you go for the team approach, you can then get questioned about your inability to come up with your own ideas, and need to hide behind others! Probably the best approach would be to say that you have no preference - you enjoy working on your own and taking responsibility for your actions, but that you also enjoy being part of a team and contributing to that with your ideas and skills.
