Network:7583



Feel free to add from your side as well

Tough Project Management Interview Questions That I faced lately:
1. What skills are you lacking as a project manager?
2. How long are you willing to fail at this job before you succeed?
3. Tell me what you felt was unfair in your last position?
4. What are you most proud of in your career?
5. Name one and only skill that Project Manager should have (I wrote about it previously)
6. What general metrics do you use to determine if a project is progressing on track?
7. Describe one of the most challenging projects you’ve managed and explain what you learnt from the experience

I guess it depends on the situation and the culture. In Mozambique, I had to use the power all the time and eliminate conflicts as a BOSS. It is not the ideal solution but I had no other choice to stay in control of conflicts.

You are right, it depends on the situation. I have never used power, and I'm sure that was not the right choice all the time.

I hate this question, it is always there somewhere in the interview or in between lines.

I agree with you Sante, we should have that always ready in mind and answer other questions based on that (Why should I Hire you? ).
