How to answer "Problem Solving" Questions
Why are recruiters asking this?
Problem solving interview questions test your skills of analysis, information gathering, and logical decision making. They usually take the form of “Tell me about a difficult problem you had to solve. How did you solve it?”
Companies want to know how you will handle (normal) problems that happen at work.
To answer this kind of question, tell a specific story where you solved a problem, listing the information step-by-step and describing your critical thinking.
