Sample answer for a Situational Judgement question

For the situation described in the sample question, the competency tested is Analysis and Problem Solving, but this is not explained to the candidate!

The best and worst cases are designated in relation to this competency and its specific method tested (for this question is Expert Knowledge). The answers are:

Best: B - your colleague should be the person most knowledgeable in the field and before anything you should take the chance to discuss with him the key issues.
Worst: A – you will avoid responsibilities and miss the opportunity to learn the file.
Option C – this could work; but you risk to miss something due to fatigue and also you will lose the opportunity to review the key issues with the expert.
Option D – this can be done after you first meet with the expert; your manager should be familiar with the file but cannot give you all the key insights.

In order to succeed continue to practice more questions with the iPhone and iPad app.
