    QUSTIONS & ANSWERS

Q: How do you rate yourself as a professional?
A: On a scale of 1 to 10, 5 as a true average and 10 as perfect. I believe I’m better than average, and recognize that I have room to grow and develop and become more and better than who I’m today. Q: How do you evaluate success?
A: I evaluate success based on meeting the goals set by my supervisors, how quickly I accomplish those goals, and the feedback I get based on my performance. Q: Do you prefer working in a team or alone?
A: I prefer a bit of both, I find that sometimes working with a team feels creative because we can bounce ideas off each other and get an opportunity to learn from other people’s experiences. Q: How do you deal with stressful situations?
A: If a situation seems overwhelming, I mentally break it up into smaller steps, or doable goals, and just focus on reaching each one on the way to accomplishing the larger task. In fact, that’s what I did when I get a programming task, I sort of strip out all the secondary features and focus on the main part and get the skeleton and then slowly add other features on top of it. Sort of incremental approach, this will give me some confidence and motivation.
