What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

The similar questions can be: What are the accomplishments you are most proud of?
Can you explain me a job you did that you think is of greatest value? What are the greatest jobs done by you?

Whatever be the question, but the people interviewing you wants you tell them what big jobs you have done. You need to tell them what smart things you did and what skills you gained by doing those great things.

I hope you are not taking it so easy. Because there are three kinds of people in the world, believe me.

One: those who accomplish minor and exaggerate louder.
Second: those who do great jobs but cannot earn credit of it.
Third: Those who accomplish great things and make fame of it.

If you are an average, I am sure you fall in any of these two categories. And you are hard to escape. Got point? Yeah, you have to prepare to protect yourself from being a failure and you should make yourself strong to avoid falling into above stated categories. It is a must for better career.

As you read through the posts of this blog, you came to know that. I have stressed on the necessity of understanding exactly what the question looks for. If you come to the point, points will come to you with highest probability of winning the interview and getting the best job!

So let me tell you the facts that the interviewer expects from you by asking this question: What accomplishments you are most proud of? Or tell me the best job you have ever done.

The interviewer expects the following by asking you the mentioned question.

1. He wants to evaluate you by examining the worth of best things you have done. You are what you did. You heard them tell-“You are what you think. You are what you do”.

And I have two sentences to add: “You are what you think. You are what you eat.” And never forget another truth: “You are what your friend is”. You are what you except to be-real expectation-not a gambling!

The interviewer wants to know you by your best part.

2. The interviewer wants to know how you worked to achieve success. In other words, he wants to measure your strength. Success comes after hard work. By listing your answer s/he will know you work.

3. The interviewer wants to explore your potentials. He wants to map his organization with the possibilities within you.

For these reasons, the interviewer wants to listen the best story from you. You may have so many stories. Now tell me have you the skill to tell it in the best possible way? Wait until my next post just within half a week!!

Here are some statements to remind you how hard should one work to be successful.

The one thing that matters is the effort. It continues, whereas the end to be attained is but an illusion of the climber, as he fares on and on from crest to crest; and once the goal is reached it has no meaning.

~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands, translated from French by Stuart Gilbert
I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
~Thomas Jefferson
Character is what emerges from all the little things you were too busy to do yesterday, but did anyway.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
