Tell me about a time when you had to learn something new within a short deadline?

The interviewer wants to know that you can learn new skills under pressure. Hiring managers want to hear that you are willing to put in the effort required to learn new skills, even when it may seem difficult.

Think about the times when your company implemented new software, or when you learned a new procedure. Perhaps your employer asked you to attend a workshop at the last minute, or you had to study for a policy exam. These make great examples! Discuss how you diligently studied related materials, attended a training seminar, or bought a book to help you learn the new content.

Keep in mind; this is another excellent opportunity to express that you accept workplace changes with ease.
