Are You a Risk-Taker?

Businessman with binoculars spying on competitors.Interview Question: Do you classify yourself as a risk-taker?


This is a classic case of where the follow-up question is almost more important than the lead question. That being said, the right answer depends on what you are seeking tied to the role being considered. For the follow-up, regardless of the answer, you really need to make the candidate explain their response. Look as well for examples from them to support their assertion, never assuming the response is accurate or honest.
