What hurdles or obstacles have you overcome?

The interviewer may be asking this question if there are any areas of concern on your resume, or if they need further information. They may also simply be looking to get further clues into your personality as well as how you handle conflict.

A sample answer could be:

“One of the biggest hurdles that I had to overcome at my internship was the fact that I didn’t have a lot of experience. I had big shoes to fill in order to prove myself, joining a team of seasoned professionals. This challenge helped me push myself harder, however, and I quickly became a valuable asset to the team and business.”
