Tell me a time when you had to handle pressure?

 

Well  I can’t say I enjoy stress,but i do  agree that handling stressful circumstances has really taught me a lot about effective communication and most importantly prioritization . In my last job I had to answer to three supervisors who sometimes allocated me conflicting tasks. Rather than trying to address both concurrently and  end up overwhelmed and stressed out, I sat down with both my supervisors on urgent tasks and those tasks that could be handled later. We worked out a schedule that allowed me to organize what needed to get done based on priority.  I was able to complete both tasks quickly and efficiently, and this gave me  satisfaction as i was always able to finish every task and as per the   assignment list.  I’ve found that with proper prioritization i can handle much bigger work loads with less stress and without being overwhelmed.
