    Hello everyone. I am preparing for my interview with a dream employer in a few weeks. I read some posts by previous candidates and find some questions that may appear in the interview. I am really confused with this one:

    "Tell me a time when you work play different roles in a team"

    I just don't know what does the "different roles" mean? It could mean different functions in a team (e.g. editor, programmer, data collector), but it could also mean more abstract and broad things like team-player, leader and coordinator.

    I am sure that this question is asking about team-work and adaptability.

    Can anyone help me with this question? Thank you!

    I'm sure the employer is referring to different roles such as a team leader, facilitator, plant (providing creative ideas) etc. Most probably wants to figure out if you can be flexible in how you work in teams, or if you only like to take the lead...

    Good luck!

    Thanks. I think so. I am thinking about giving an answer that would demonstrate that I could play both the role as a team player and as a leader.
