How would you deal with a difficult situation in an interview?
- Take the question seriously, and answer it seriously. If the interviewer asks about a situation you've never had to deal with, it's okay to say so, but they can then easily change the question to "How WOULD you deal with a difficult situation like that?"
Should you deal with difficult situations unprofessionally?
- Think also about the longer term consequences for you and your career if you deal with a difficult situation unprofessionally. People will respect you more if you try to always be professional in your dealings with them, even on a difficult issue.
