Do you have an upcoming job interview? Check out my example answer to the interview question: “What is your greatest achievement?” or “What is your greatest professional accomplishment?”
Hiring managers often ask this question to find out what makes you stand out from the crowd. They are also curious if your greatest achievement can be replicated, hence benefit the new job role. The best way to structure your answer is by using the CARL technique:
√ Do share a recent and relevant accomplishment (match with the job requirements). This could be a successful presentation, achieving sales targets, taking on additional responsibilities etc.
X Don’t feel like you come across as unlikeable or obnoxious when answering this question
X Don’t give a list of possible accomplishments or a long-winded answer because then you’ll come across as someone who is unprepared and indecisive
