Interview Question:

How do you handle stress?

Employers want to know that you can take on multiple tasks and still remain calm under pressure. So the ability to handle stress is a highly essential tool required in the real world.

You never want to present a low tolerance for high-pressure situations, and admitting that dealing with stress is one of your weaknesses will display a big fat red light to managers.

Here are some acceptable answers to respond with:

  • I handle stress very well, and I actually prefer working in a fast-paced environment where I can better skills.
  • Dealing with stress is no problem for me because I feel more productive when I multi-task and can learn more in challenging situations.
