Interview Question: list five adjectives that describe you.

Last time I was asked this, I could only think of four. This time I want to be prepared. I think I'm going to use passionate, diligent, responsible, creative and trustworthy.

What do you think of those adjectives?
What adjectives would you use?

What would you choose between these two: creative or resourceful? Driven or diligent?

The trick is to use adjectives that (1) relate to the position you are applying for and (2) benefit the company.

So passionate and creative (unless a creative job) would not be best choices.


(1) Diligent
(2) Responsible
(3) Trustworthy (if a job requiring confidentiality) if not pick something else)
(4) Resourceful
(5) Team Player
