Had a situational interview today with Accenture, manager level. Every single question was related to conflict... EVERY SINGLE ONE. It was so confusing and quite frankly has rubbed me the wrong way...

The team or the client themselves may be difficult to work with so they may be trying to get a feel for your working style and conflict resolution skills.

Yiiiiiikes that’s weird. But idk, maybe that team has a lot of headstrong people and previous people have left due to conflict/disagreements.

G1, That is actually a good perspective... no idea, but it was so strange. And I only practiced one conflict/challenging work situation type question 😂🤦🏾‍♀️

Has anyone experienced anything similar? Am I overthinking it or is it as biased as it feels?

Yeah, when I was in a conflict heavy project, we also asked a lot of questions about how potential team members would handle conflict. It was crucial to their success. It was a shit storm.

This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
