hi all
this is a very lame Q, but I have to ask.
What exactly does the interviewer mean by " tell me about a teamwork experience". Isn't that a very abstract questions? Most of the projects I do are in teams, so what do they want to hear specifically? Conflict management? Multicultural teams? Dealing with someone difficult?
what would make a good teamwork example?
thanks

my take on the ques - Give an example of the time u were a part of/led a team. Typically the response should include the project assigned, how was work delegated your role and responsibilities, how effective the team was as in were the people chosen appropriate for the task, what problems were faced and how they were solved by the team, any conflicts, how was ur overall experience (on the lines of 'i learnt ...')

When your interviewer says "Walk me through your resume..", do you go choronologically - i.e. start with undergrad move on to first position then second etc... or go in the order of the resume - i.e. Here is where I AM NOW but how I got here is ....

And do you work in the EC's/Personal interests into the Resume walk through? Or is it just exercise in determining your professional history?

Typically it's in reverse chronological order. You tell them this is where I am, and prior to this, i did xyz.
I usually don't mention extra curricular in the resume walkthrough , but I weave in the reasons for my career transition here through something I did outside of work, and that covers the question (for a career switcher) of "what in your background supports your interest for changing to abc career. "
