With this question interviewer will get to know many details about you like what you view as failure, how you have handled a bad situation and what did you learn from the experience. It’s best to choose a situation from early in your career. Be sure you take ownership of what you could control rather than blaming other. Focus on learning out of it, bepositive and try not sound like you lackconfidence, don’t pick generic scenario, be truthful don’t overdo it.For example, “When I was in college, I took an art class to supplement my curriculum. I didn’t take it very seriously, and assumed that, compared to my Engineering classes, it would be a walk in the park. My failing grades at midterm showed me otherwise. I’d even jeopardized my scholarship status. I knew I had to get my act together. I spent the rest of the semester making up for it, ended up getting a decent grade in the class. I learned that no matter what I’m doing, I should strive to do it to the best of my ability. Otherwise, it’s not worth doing at all.”
