Only for a moment. I'm pretty good at dragging out some kind of answer.

One of the company values (a set of directives we're supposed to live and breathe) is 'be yourself, be big hearted'

In the interview I was asked: 'what does that mean to you'?


I think I waffled that one a bit til something popped into my head.

What I am quite good at, I think, is reframing that shit to my own purposes. Ask me about a time I 'collaborated on a project or task' and I chose to focus on something a little less nailed down, like the way we are building our new team, and helping the newbies get to grips with the job.

If I don't have something that exactly matches what they're looking for, I can usually find something that speaks to the same set of skills.
