I’m mindful of the cost/benefit ratio – sometimes small changes have a big impact.

Q33. How do you share knowledge with your team members and contribute to their growth?

Q39. Can you discuss a situation where you had to adapt to changing requirements in a project?

Answer: Change is the only constant in our field! I’ve learned to be flexible while staying focused on the bigger project goals. Good communication is key when requirements shift – understanding the ‘why’ behind the change helps me adjust my approach effectively.

Q40. Describe a time when you had to work under pressure to meet a deadline and how you handled it.

Answer: There are always high-pressure situations! In these cases, I find it helpful to take a step back, assess the situation, and break the problem into smaller, manageable chunks.  I also lean on my team and am not afraid to ask for help when needed.
