Are You Willing To Take Risks? - Job Interview Answers.

“To get what you want, Stop doing what isn't working.”
The answer to this question depends on the position and nature of the job you are applying for. But it’s believed that those who are willing to take risks are positioned well than the other candidates.


Your answer can be:

1) I’m a risk taker. I keep my options open and if the reward justifies the risk, I would definitely try. I believe rewards belong only to those guys who go beyond intentions to the place of actions.

“Policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.”

2) I see myself as a risk taker. But before taking any decision, I always evaluate all other options and after careful considerations I would definitely take a risk if the rewards were high enough.

“There is as much risk in doing nothing, as in doing something.”
3) I think it’s important to take some risks. Going the extra mile in taking risks is worth even if failure is the result, because the experience and the growth from the risks are priceless.
